Over the past few weeks I’ve done even more work on our classroom / crafts space. There’s a LOT more “stuff” in it; perfect for making kids and adult crafts, as well as offering small workshops.
There’s still a huge amount more work to do, but at least it’s usable again!
There are boxes of games & puzzles, artificial flowers, vases, baskets, kids crafts, and all sorts of other stuff that now needs to be better organized. Some of it I bought for my social work job, some of it I acquired somewhere, and some of it came as part of clean-outs we’ve done for garage sales, church sales and so forth.
And there are many boxes of shells and driftwood pieces that my co-worker Kaili picked up one day… (Thank you!)
If there’s anyone who likes organizing and would get a kick out of setting this stuff up in some semblance of order, I would be sooooo appreciative! It’s my goal to start offering workshops for kids again, and to let friends, co-workers or whomever come in and use the room for workshops or game days, or to teach small classes.
Give me a yell if you think it would be fun, or if you have ideas!
189B Main Street, Lewiston ME. (Entrance through the back of the building, off Park Street.)
As of Thanksgiving of 2017, Heritage Collectibles has closed its 189 Main Street storefront, and is in the process of moving most of the antique & furniture inventory to other shops (see below). We are keeping what had previously been the furniture gallery section of the shop, however and will use that to house Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps…. it will primarily offer books, maps, records & ephemera. We’d love it if you would follow our blogs! (Our Heritage Books & Maps blog isn’t presently as active as the Heritage Collectibles one.)

This will also be the location of The (Grief) Warrior support groups.

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 and Papa’s Thrift Shop 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.)
