Sold! Folding Kitchen Stepstool with Vinyl Seat

Bid for This on AuctionNinja!

We’re now doing on-line auctions!

Check us out on!  We have several auctions coming up in the next few weeks and this item is just one of hundreds that will be auctioned off!  

You’ll find this in the auction named “An Eclectic Mix of Vintage & Contemporary – From a Closed Maine Shop, Part 1“.  Once that auction is over, this item will be gone for good!

So here’s the description:

This is the kind of step stool that’s great for the kitchen. There’s one step with a rubber mat to reach into most cupboards , and if absolutely necessary, the seat can be used as a step for those of us who are vertically challenged. Otherwise, the stool is great in the kitchen for hanging out while mom (dad, spouse or whomever) is cooking… the vinyl seat is much more comfy than those stools with a second rubber mat instead!

Condition: Very good. The rubber mat is intact with no rips or tears, as is the vinyl cushion. It does have some rust starting on the back of the handle and probably down around the bottom of the legs (this was found in a basement), and it could stand to be cleaned up. (I did some minor scrubbing with window cleaner, but more would be indicated.) All in all, it’s in great shape.

Dimensions: Standard size for this stool, which was in most homes when I was younger! It’s 21 inches deep (from front legs to back legs),12 inches to the first step, and about 30″ high overall,

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, 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 the
