Bid for This on AuctionNinja!
We’re now doing on-line auctions!
Check us out on AuctionNinja.com! 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:
Someone made this little bench with love. The top appears to be a child’s profile with winter hat (? perhaps you’ll see something else in it?); underneath it says “El Cid”, a reference to a Spanish hero of centuries past.
Please note the rustic features, including the knotholes.
It’s quite narrow – only 7.5″ wide – so will fit in a smaller space.
Dimensions: 30 1/2 inches long by 7 1/2 inches deep by 18 inches high
Notes: Vintage/antique. Please see photos.

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 the
