As mentioned on another post, in the past week, I’ve added a good 4,000-5,000 books to our inventory. All told, there were at least 200 boxes of books that got dragged into the shop, piled in every available corner and free space. Whew!
We already had quite a few religious and spiritual books, but today I probably added another 75-100 to the collection. I’d love to sell a few of these; right now close to half of them are stacked up on the floor in front of the bookcases… I just don’t have room for them all!
At some point, I’ll try to get a few of the actual titles and authors listed on here but doubt that will be very soon… there’s soooo much work to do! (Sorry!)
Updated, 11/03/18: I spent close to an hour today clearing an extra 6-shelf bookcase to put all the religious and religious-spiritual books on… but there are still a lot stacked up on the floor! We have a huge collection that probably is close to 500 volumes!
Price: Most of our religious and spiritual books are $1.00 for softcover and $2.00 for hardcovers; buy 3, get one free.
There are a few that are a bit pricier; for example, the Dale Evans Rogers book shown in the photo below, is $15.00. (That’s less expensive than it is on Amazon!)
Update, 11/03/18: If individually priced, the value of all these books based on what they’re selling for on Amazon (not the cover price), is likely around a couple of thousand dollars. You can buy this entire inventory for just $300… they really don’t sell well at our shop, and I need the space.
Condition: Most are in excellent shape, although some are very old and the bindings are failing.

All sales, after expenses, go to support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in center in development. The Grief Warrior Project‘s support group room is located at Heritage Collectibles. FMI: Linda, 207 / 740-2247.
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 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, 2001. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
