With a little bit of cleaning up, this vintage double-sided green chalkboard (similar to the one I spent hours drawing on as a child, but much larger!) would be great fun for any kid! Or two kids playing at the same time, since it has a chalkboard on both sides of the easel! The piece also has a great space to hold loads of chalk, erasers and so forth!
Condition: Needs some cleaning up and repairs, but otherwise would be usable. It appears to have been handmade, but I’ll have to take a closer look to make sure. Note: The chalkboard got knocked over, and one of the chalk holders fell off, and needs to be reattached.
It also looks like it must have had something across the top; some of the older ones had a scroll of paper, although I don’t think that was the case here. More likely, it had a plaque or signage of some kind (e.g. nursery rhymes). A whiteboard could be affixed.
Dimensions: Larger than usual. This is probably about 5′ tall although the chalkboard drawing area tops out at nearly 18″ below the peak of the frame.
Price: Just $12.00 at Heritage Collectibles. Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!
NOTE: With the exception of books, maps & music, most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford. FMI: https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/details-hours/
We hope you will enjoy our revamped shop, as well as our booth in Oxford, as you did our original retail space on Main Street.
For those dying to check out the revamped Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps, we are still in the same building, but our new entrance is at the back of that building.
Just enter 9 Park Street, Lewiston into your GPS and park in the nearest available spot. Our entrance is through the door at the end of the building on the right hand side. You’ll see signs in the windows (“Retail Store” and “Heritage Collectibles” and “Antiques” as well as others; you’ll also see my silver Jeep Liberty parked nearby.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us since August of 2014!
In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.
He loved me like crazy, 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 will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.
[Please Note: The (Grief) 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.]
