Shipping for 1 book is $3.98.  Shipping for  2-4 books is $7.98.  Shipping is free for 5 or more books from this collection.

Note: The three main book types are hardcover, trade and mass market.  “Trades” are any paperback larger than the typical pocket-sized book generally associated with romances and other fiction.

Below is a list of some of the titles and their individual prices. (This is a working draft, so some information may change in the next couple of days; I just wanted to get it up and running before the rest of my schedule got in the way, as seems to happen too frequently.):

Also, we have…

11) The Standard Guitar Method, by Dick Bennett.  Trade.  (Very Good) $25.00  [Note:  This is the EXACT same book my dad bought me in 1972 when I got a guitar for Christmas.  Never did learn how to play.  Still have the guitar, though.]

And a guitar instruction DVD…

14) Simply Guitar: Expert tuition to guide you from the basics for beginners to the more advanced playing…     DVD.  (Very Good).  So far, I can’t find this anywhere, and wonder if it came with a book as well.  Will research further.   For now, the price is $30.00.

Individually, these add up to $244.00 (which is cheaper than Amazon).

Buy them all for just $195.00! (Plus free shipping.)

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 planning 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.)
