Social Work, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Chicken Soup, and More!

I have no idea how many women’s studies, family systems, books on sex, grief, suicide, psychology, sociology, philosophy etc etc we have.  As you might be able to see, the bookshelves in our support group room were filled… and then I began unpacking.  More, and more, and even more.

The mental health, social work, cultural and spirituality section has definitely doubled… and who knows what else is in the 150 boxes still to be unpacked!

Oh, by the way, we have dozens of Chicken Soup for the anyone-who-needs-it books!

And by the way again, that’s Rudi trying to figure out where he wants to be with all of those books suddenly in his way.  Millie is firmly settled in on the chaise behind me.

Price:  Varies widely by the type and title.  Some are as little as $1.00 for the paperbacks, others are considerably more.

Condition:  Many are in excellent, like-new condition. Others have clearly been well-used.

Come on in and check ’em out!


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, 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.)
