Attention: Due to Jackasses, There Will Be NO More Curb Alerts Behind Heritage Collectibles

With every curb alert, I post the following:

Please be respectful and don’t make a mess in the alley or in front of the shop.  My landlord parks there and he’s been really really good to us, but he doesn’t like to see a mess – and who can blame him?  Thank you!

Believe me, we greatly appreciate everyone who is respectful, and all who have helped us continue to give away thousands of dollars worth of free stuff every year.

This past weekend, though.  I was disgusted by some jerk and posted the following:

And to the person who left the bucket filled with cigarette butts and empty “nips” bottles… gee, thanks.  I give free stuff and you leave trash.  Really classy.

Well I’m sure no one reading this will believe it, but while I was working at the shop on Sunday afternoon, some jackass decided he (or she) wanted the metal bucket… so dumped all of those nasty disgusting cigarette butts and other crap (including some kind of liquid) into the box of remaining free items.

I had to throw away everything that was left.

That’s it.  I’m done.  I’ve cleaned up too many half-filled coffee cups, pieces of trash and so forth from our free items.  I’m not going to do it any more.  From now on, everything’s going to Goodwill.

The jackasses spoiled it for everyone else.  I’m sorry.

Hours for the Week of 08/27-09/01, 2017 – Opening at 2:00pm on Sunday the 27th

 

Our booth (#23) at the Hathaway Mill Antique Mall, 10 Water Street in Waterville is OPEN, 10:00-5:00, seven days a week!  We’ve crammed it full of great inventory (with more to come before we leave for the month!).

Exciting News!  (For us, anyway!)  The shop will be closed from September 1st-25th while Linda visits her daughter and son-in-law and her first grandchild!

Prices on many items are being reduced at the 189 Main Street, Lewiston location from now until August 31st, to help get the shop cleared and organized, and ready for new inventory when Linda returns – in time for the holiday season.

So come on in and take advantage of our great prices!

Expanded Music Room!  We moved all of our vinyl, music books and instruments to a larger space within the shop… and now have some other equipment such as speakers, and DVD players on sale!

Check Out Our New Tool Room!  We’ve moved all of our tools into the old Music Room, and added quite a few items.  I’m actively looking for more antique and vintage tools to buy since we’ve sold a lot in the past few weeks… so send your referrals this-a-way!

Frames & Small Mirrors Closet!  We have piles of old and new picture frames for sale and finally have set up a space to display them all together.

Arts & Crafts and Small Group Classroom!  Our classroom has been reclaimed!  (It had turned into a junk storage room for far too long.)  We’re planning to start our classes again this fall!

We’re still reorganizing, and trying to find room for the 10,000 books we have in stock (several thousand are taking up half of our own personal garage), but we’re working on it!

Recent News: We now have a space (Booth #23) at the Hathaway Mill Antique Center at 10 Water Street in Waterville!

Hours:  Our hours have expanded!  We are now open longer hours on Fridays and most Sundays.  NOTE:  This Sunday, August 13, we will be open from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm only!

As always, if you’re coming from any distance, please give me a call ahead of time to ensure I’ll be open… if our hours don’t work with your schedule and if I can possibly swing it, I can be available some mornings before 10:00.  Most afternoons through the evening, I’m at my social work job until at least 8:00 pm but I could possibly open up after I get out of work.

GONE! Curb Alert Behind Heritage Collectibles

 

There’s more free stuff in the alley behind Heritage Collectibles (189 Main Street, Lewiston) and Papa’s Thrift Shop (5 Park Street, Lewiston).  The alley is at the end of the building on the Park Street side, right after Papa’s.

  • bicycle tires
  • framed pictures
  • ladies shoes
  • window treatments
  • curtain rods
  • an antique pitcher (cracked and repaired)
  • two kids’ scooters
  • miscellaneous kitchen items

Please be respectful and don’t make a mess in the alley or in front of the shop.  My landlord parks there and he’s been really really good to us, but he doesn’t like to see a mess – and who can blame him?  Thank you!

And to the person who left the bucket filled with cigarette butts and empty “nips” bottles… gee, thanks.  I give free stuff and you leave trash.  Really classy.

Yet Another Stupid Scam via Craigslist

  

Another scam via Craigslist.  This came in to my email, with a return address saying it was a “craigslist reply 640e).    Two minutes earlier I’d gotten an identical one, only referencing a different item.

Both emails referenced a supposed earlier email.

“Did u message my Boss concerning your post?
On Wed, Aug 23, 2017 at 11:13 AM, craigslist reply cb6b wrote:
Can you message Ben right away on msczca at gmail .he his more than ready to purchase your Soil Survey — Penobscot County Maine.can you meet today anytime.please let him know where you decide and what your bottom price is.please email works better because he works on a plant.

Thanks Alicia,”

It’s not unusual for scammers to text you, with the direction to email them back because “they’re at work and can’t get texts” or they’ve “borrowed someone’s phone” or they’re “texting for someone who’s too busy” to do it themselves.

It’s all horsepuckey.  Don’t respond.  Just forward the emails to craigslist as a scam, and delete all texts and emails without further comment.

Be safe!

Must Have, One of a Kind, Folk Art – A Vintage Painted Outhouse Seat!

 

Seriously… when was the last time you saw an old outhouse seat painted up so nicely?

I don’t even want to count the number of times I had to use the outhouses at my grandparents while growing up.  And we certainly didn’t have anything like this to sit on!

This has to be a one of a kind piece; I’ve never seen one like it and I’ve been around the block a few times.

Complete with wire hanger on the back.

Please scroll down for more photos.

Condition:  It’s in great condition, considering…..

Location:  This folk art seat / wall hanging can be found at our booth (#23) in Waterville (at the Hathaway Mill Antique Mall, 10 Water Street) soon.

Prices:   $35.00   (Plus the usual 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.)

Please note: The shop will be closed from September 1-25 while Linda visits her daughter and son-in-law for the birth of her first biological grandchild!  Prices on many items are being reduced prior to that time (although not this item, which is being offered for the first time), to help get the shop cleared and organized, and ready for new inventory when Linda returns – in time for the holiday season.

Some Quick Details:

  • Pricing.  The prices given are firm, especially if I have to drive to one of the other locations to pick it up and ship it to you.  Some of the shops our inventory is in may give a discount for any individual item valued at more than a certain dollar figure if you buy it from them directly… that’s between you and the policies of whichever shop the item is located in.
  • Holding Items.  Sorry, none of the shops we’re doing business with will hold an item without payment as we’ve all been burned by this in the past.
  • Availability.  I hate to say this, but please do not call or message me to ask if an item is available… if the post doesn’t indicate in the title that the item has sold, then I believe it hasn’t yet been sold.  Your best bet would be to call the shop it’s located in and ask them (please give them the booth number listed with their address & phone, below).  Some shops will, however, tell you they don’t have the staffing or the time to go check.
  • Shipping.  If you definitely want an item and are willing to pay the purchase price upfront and to have it shipped to you (which we’ve done in the past), we absolutely will continue to do that – although it could take a week or more before we can get it sent out.  (It’s my overloaded plate… remember, I’m a full-time social worker with a challenging schedule, so generally a requested item will have to wait until a regularly planned trip to the shop in question.)
  • Questions.  I try to put as much information as a buyer might need in the description, and provide pictures that include both the highlights and any dings or damage to the items.  Because I no longer have the items listed readily available, it could be a week o more before I can respond to a specific question if I have to physically go to the shop where the item is located to get any answers.

SOLD! Antique Child’s Rolltop Desk

 

About a year ago we sold a similar child’s roll top desk, but it wasn’t in as good condition as this one is.

The roll top works well with only slight sticking, and the drawer slides smoothly.

Please scroll down for more photos.

Condition:  Very good.  Apparently someone of short stature (e.g. a child) put a couple of stickers on the desk.  The stickers themselves have been removed but there’s still some paper adhered to the wood.  I’ll remove that paper during the clean up/dusting off process.

Price:   $70.00  (Plus the usual 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.)

Location:  Currently at our 189 Main Street in Lewiston shop, but it will be moved to our booth at the Hathaway Mill Antiques Mall, 10 Water Street in Waterville soon.

Please note: The shop will be closed from September 1-25 while Linda visits her daughter and son-in-law for the birth of her first biological grandchild!  Prices on many items are being reduced prior to that time (although not this item, which is being offered for the first time), to help get the shop cleared and organized, and ready for new inventory when Linda returns – in time for the holiday season.

Some Quick Details:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on the prices listed in our blogs… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
  • Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing).  If so, that reduced price will be posted.
  • Holding Items.  Sorry, not without payment.  We used to when we first opened the shops, and found that too often the person asking us to hold an item never came back and we lost sales in the interim to someone who was standing there with cash in hand. Obviously, that’s not good business.
  • Questions.  This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job.  This means I have very limited time to respond to questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts.  So I may not have time to respond…
  • Dealers. We’re happy to talk to you!  Please remember to bring a copy of your State Resellers License.

Belt Buckles – John Deere, Trans Am, Ford, Firefighters

 

These belt buckles came from a recent auction.  We had to wait until the very end of that auction for them to come up but it was worth it to bring back this nice little find.

Please scroll down for more photos.

Condition:  All are in excellent condition, except the one with the stone/gem center which has been slightly banged up.

Location:  The buckles can be found at our main location, 189 Main Street in Lewiston.

Prices:   John Deere and Firefighters are $18.00 each.  The Trans Am and Ford buckles are $16.00.  The one with the stone center is $8.00.   (Plus the usual 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.)

************************************

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.

He loved me, 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 and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The (Grief) Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(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, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
