Heritage Collectibles of Maine was originally a bricks and mortar shop, but after Linda’s husband John died tragically in 2016, the shop was closed, and the business became mostly on-line, with inventory available at Linda’s other business offices. However, the workload of the two businesses is too much for one person to keep up with, so reluctantly Heritage Collectibles is closing to allow Linda to concentrate on her other business, as well as spending as much time as possible with her almost 4 year old grandson.
This sale will take place in two parts, with the first part held on June 26 & 27, and the second sometime in late July. (The July sale will have the bulk of the antiques we still have in stock, as well as a couple of hundred or so pieces of brass, lots of costume jewelry, vintage and contemporary books, and a mix of other super cool items.)
Although this is just a partial listing, here’s some of what you’ll find this weekend. (But first, the basics of the sale!)
