As mentioned in a previous post, I just love old iron doorstops – and I especially love pig doorstops!
This guy is a happy looking piggie, unlike some others that seem to have rather sour expressions. Perhaps because he’s standing outside on green grass, or perhaps he’s just proud of his spots… who knows. But “Spot” (as I’ve named him) is one good looking dude.
Scroll to the bottom of this page to see more photos (more to come).
Dimensions: About 12 inches wide by 8 inches high by about 3 inches deep
Condition: Excellent. There is one spot on the backside where the ceramic over the cast iron has chipped, but it doesn’t show in front and doesn’t detract from the piece’s usefulness.
FCFS. No holds without payment in advance via PayPal. (I don’t use any other cash or money app.)
Price: $42.00; includes Maine State Sales Tax.
Local Pick Up Available in Auburn, Maine. This item is located at a private home in Auburn, and can be seen there by appointment, which ordinarily would be on weekends only. For those who prefer, you can find this item on Facebook’s Marketplace here: [to be added once item is posted to Marketplace] or you can send an email to Linda at HeritageCollectiblesMaine@gmail.com
Payment Through This Website: This site supposedly offers the option of paying directly but there’s some kind of weird glitch and payment info for every new item posted somehow auto-populates to every previous item. Since that’s obviously wrong, I’ve had to eliminate that option on most items. My apologies! Please connect with me via email@example.com for purchase info. Because my primary business is non-stop and demanding, I may not get back to you until early morning or late evening. (More apologies!)

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 was passionate about 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 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, although it has been in hiatus during the pandemic. I’m hoping to begin working on this again during the spring of 2023.
(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.)
