Papa’s is a tiny little thrift shop with a variety of household items that don’t make it into our arts & antique shop (Heritage Collectibles – which is right around the corner)… and many of our prices are far better than at similar shops and flea markets.
We have dish sets, Coca Cola collectibles, angels, clothing (mostly women’s, sized small & medium), shoes, linens & curtains, loads of baskets, salt & pepper shakers, a door (!), and even a wedding dress! It’s less organized than we’d like, since we have the other shop and we both work full-time as well, so there are always boxes we haven’t had a chance to look through. This does mean, however, that bulk purchasers can get good deals. Come on in & take a look!
Papa’s Thrift Shop is open every week on Fridays & Saturdays from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm as well as some Mondays from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm or by appointment. If we aren’t at the shop, please walk around the corner to Heritage Collectibles, and one of us will open it up for you!
Location: Papa’s Thrift Shop, 5 Park Street, Lewiston ME 04240.
Hours: Vary, but usually 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm on Fridays & Saturdays, and 12:00 noon to 2:oo pm on Monnday. This can vary depending on the demands of our day jobs (Linda is a social worker, and John is the post press supervisor at the local newspaper), and our other business (Heritage Collectibles, an antiques & collectibles shop around the corner at 189 Main Street).

Message re Our Products & Services:
As with most thrift shops, nearly all of the items we offer are pre-owned i.e. used. (Although sometimes items we receive are still in their original boxes.) Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
Nearly everything at Papa’s is received as a donation in some form or another, which is the only way we can offer our Low Income Voucher Program. The shop obviously needs to make enough money to survive (that is, pay rent, utilities, insurances, taxes, etc) so we must sell to the general public as well in order to keep our doors open.
Therefore, please be aware that items donated to Papa’s Thrift Shop are sold to the general public or given away via the Low Income Voucher Program on a first come, first serve basis. We can’t – at this point anyway – separate items out, with some going to the program and others not… our space is just too small and our time is too limited.
Thank you for your support!
