Love Our Customers!

 
 

Oh how I love our repeat customers!

This morning my heart was warmed by a young man with his toddler daughter.  He has her every weekend, and often stops in to the shop to buy one or two items.  Last weekend, he picked up a few books for the little girl as well as something for himself.  While he was looking around, and to keep the short one entertained, I gave her a plastic kids’ wagon that she could put stuff in and pull along with her.

Dad wasn’t convinced she’d like it – and she certainly didn’t seem all that impressed at the time.  This morning, however, they were walking by the shop, and she was pulling the little wagon behind her, with a hefty pile of stuffed animals in it.  Dad said he was surprised because the wee one had taken a sudden liking to the wagon and hauled it behind her everywhere.  Not only does Dad not have to carry his daughter, but she even totes some of his purchases, too!

It’s this kind of happenstance that makes life worthwhile.

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.)
