NOW CLOSED. Shop Closing: Fixtures, Books and Furniture – On Sale Cheap or Free! FINAL SALE DAY!

First, the remaining sale time:

Saturday, January 19, 10:00-3:00

Some items have been reduced further just for today! (See below!)

Come on in during the above times and get some great deals… bring a truck to haul off your purchases!

Okay, so here’s the info:

Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps is closing its physical location, and moving primarily to on-line sales, as well as flea markets, and of course, the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford.

We’re presently in the process of removing everything we plan to keep and sell through the above venues; there is still plenty left over that we no longer have the room or need for, which we’ll be selling for pretty cheap… and some will be available for free!

Payment: PayPal or cash only (unless you are known to us, in which case we can take a check). Prices discounted by 10% for any cash sales over $100. (It helps if I don’t have to pay the PayPal fees.)

Note: Unless you have a valid dealer certificate, the 5.5% Maine State sales tax will be applied!

The List:
Here’s a partial list, which I’ll continue to update so please keep checking back! You’ll find photos of some items below.

All sales, after expenses, go to support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in center in development.  I’m also a volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).   FMI: Linda, 207 / 740-2247.


NOTE:  Our 14,000 books, plus maps, sheet music and art are now available primarily on-line (with local delivery in the Auburn, Maine area available), while some of our vintage, antique and other inventory can be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford.  We are booth number 56.

We also plan to exhibit at several flea markets beginning this spring.  As soon as we nail down schedules, we’ll post them on here!


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.  Johnny was an avid reader, who loved the feel of real books in his hands… history was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a lot about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly read aloud passages to me, so we could discuss the ideas contained therein.

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.

Help support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention and grief support organization by making purchases from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps.  All profits (after expenses) go to helping us help others.

(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.)
