We knew when we bought this lovely old wingback that it had some flaws in the fabric (some stitching on the seams is slightly undone as seen in the pictures). However, during the transport to the shop, a small section of fabric was torn. It’s about in the middle right of the back of the chair, as you face it (as in the photo above). The tear can be seen in one of the pictures below.
Condition: Other than the minor flaws noted above, the chair is in really good condition.
Dimensions: 41″H (at the highest point of the back) x 31″W x 27″D.
Price: Because of the fabric & stitching problems I noted prior to transporting the chair, I’d initially thought to price it at $75.00 (which is $20 less than our usual $95 for wingbacks). However, with the additional tear in the fabric, the price has been reduced to just $55.00. (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)
- Prices Are Firm. We do not negotiate on our prices… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
- Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing). If so, that reduced price will be posted.
- Holding Items. Sorry, not without payment. We’ve been screwed on this more than once, and won’t do it any more.
- Questions. This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job. This means I have very limited time to respond to questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts. So I may not have time to respond…

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.
He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.
All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.
(Please Note: The Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
