Curb Alert! Free Stuff! Another Update!

Three boxes of free clothing. There's more free stuff out there - come and get it!

Three boxes of free clothing. There’s more free stuff out there – come and get it!

Curb alert! Free clothing in the alley outside Papa’s Thrift Shop, 5 Park Street, Lewiston. Both girls and women’s, mostly size large for the women’s.  Since it’s not supposed to rain until Tuesday, I’ll leave the clothing out overnight tonight, if there’s anything left.

There’s other stuff there, too… I’m still sorting through boxes from a church donation yesterday, as well as continuing to reorganize and weed out stuff from Papa’s in preparation for us FINALLY reopening on Saturday, October 24.

We’d hoped to reopen on Friday the 23rd, but our art & antiques shop around the corner at 189 Main Street (Heritage Collectibles) is a sponsor of the Downtown Halloween that’s taking place on the 23rd from 4:00-6:00 pm, so we’ll be busy with that.

However, bring your kids on over to Heritage Collectibles and get a pirate-themed Halloween goodie bag!  And we’re sure the kids will love to see our 3 doggies all dressed up in pirate costumes!

(The pictures are of the costumes; we just ordered them this morning.  Miss Millie Mouse will be wearing the girl dog costume, while Mr Budro and Rudi Roo will have the boy pirate dog costumes!)

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!
