Well, Papa’s now has a bunch of shelving and display racks to help reorganize the shop… some of them I purchased from CraftMania (which is going out of business), and one I bought at a garage sale. The rest I got for free (from a warehouse that just unloaded a pile of fixtures and office dividers etc outside their store and posted on Facebook for anyone to come and get the stuff.)
Now, I have to figure out how to make all of these display racks and shelving units work in our tiny store, so I can get back to the sale I had previously advertised… That sale is definitely still happening, although there will be some minor changes.
All clothing will still be $5.00 to fill a plastic grocery store sized shopping bag. And most of the rest of our inventory will be part of the “fill a plastic grocery store sized shopping bag for $10.00” sale.
However, we’ve gotten some new inventory in that will not be part of that sale… it’s just the old stuff that we want & need to get rid of.
Not sure how soon I’ll be able to get the reorganization done, since (as you’ve heard me say many times before, sigh…) I work full time as a social worker and also have Heritage Collectibles, our arts & antiques shop next door, but I’m hoping to be ready by a week from tomorrow, Monday the 21st.
Stay tuned, and thank you for your patience!
Location: Papa’s Thrift Shop at 5 Park Street, Lewiston ME 04240.
Hours: Usually 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Mondays, and 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Fridays & Saturdays. Sometimes we’re open at other times … if you happen to drop by and don’t see the door open, check around the corner at Heritage Collectibles. If we can, we’ll open up Papa’s for you.
Our hours do vary, unfortunately, depending on the demands of our day jobs (Linda is a social worker, and John is the post press supervisor at the local newspaper), whether we are exhibiting at an antiques or home show (rare nowadays), doing a garage sale or flea market clean-out, or are attending an auction we just don’t want to miss! Your best bet is to call us first to make sure we’ll be there, or to make an appointment. We do try to post our hours each day on the shop’s door, and on this blog.

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are pre-owned (although you’ll find some things still have tags on them). 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.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
