On-Line Auction to Benefit The Grief Warrior Project

As some who follow this blog are aware, John and I started an antiques business (Heritage Collectibles) a couple of years before he died.  He loved the business, especially the used & vintage bookstore section that was his baby, and we had hoped it would be his retirement project.  Until that was possible, though, we both worked full-time jobs while also working at the shops.  It was a lot of work, but we loved it.

Since John’s death, I’ve slowly been trying to develop The Grief Warrior Project, a drop-in center with support groups, focusing on grief and suicidality.  There are expenses involved, that have to be paid for somehow if I’m going to make it work.

To that end, all of the profits (after expenses, of course!) from the sale of our inventory from the antiques and book store business have gone to support The Grief Warrior Project.

Recently I began working part-time for an estate sale company, Caring Transitions of Coastal Maine.

Right now, they are running an on-line auction of some of Heritage Collectibles’ inventory.

If you like vintage items or books, please take a look at the on-line auction.  You can check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Caring-Transitions-of-Coastal-Maine-1027765363950632/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1836592286401265

and if you like what you see, please – as they say – bid high and bid often!





In memory of my beloved husband John Kelly Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.

My Johnny was a true warrior, fighting demons no one else could see.  I thought he was the strongest man in the world, and perhaps he was, but tragically, the demons got the better of him.

The name of this 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.

Fair winds and following seas, Husband.


We now have a group on Facebook to help find resources, support and ideas for getting The Warrior Project off the ground.  You can find us there at https://www.facebook.com/groups/thewarriorproject/

Follow us on Twitter!  @WarriorProjME.

We’re also on MeetUp; search Lewiston Grief Support MeetUp.

Help support The Grief Warrior Project by making purchases from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps.  All profits (after expenses) go to helping keep our doors open.  You can find Heritage Collectibles at  https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com, on Facebook (both a group and a page) and on Twitter (HeritageGifts).
