Oh man… wouldn’t you just love to spend time in this library? This is a photo of Cincinnati’s huge old main library, which was sadly demolished in 1955.
Anyway, a while back I asked if there would be interest in starting a book club of local authors, and heard back from several people that Yes, indeed, they would love it!
So now that we have a great meeting space within the shop for such a group, when would be a good time for it? Sunday evenings with a bottle of wine, and cheese & crackers? (No wine for me; I never learned to drink the stuff!) Saturday afternoons with coffee or tea, and cookies? I’m thinking once or twice a month, with a local author / guest speaker coming in maybe once a month.
NOTE: Our new entrance is at the back of the building! The address is 189 B Main Street in Lewiston, but you’ll want to put 9 Park Street in your GPS. Our entrance is in the alley behind the building, and if I’m there, you’ll see either our OPEN flag, or Johnny’s skull & crossbones flag, flying over our door.
NOTE: With the exception of nearly 14,000 books, plus maps & music (sheet music & vinyl), most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford. We are booth number 56.
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 who’ve been waiting for the revamped Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps to re-open, 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, 2001. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
