We’re excited to introduce you to the Nude Boutique, and hope it will become your favorite resource for quality, classy and artsy nudes.

The Nude Boutique is a concept that’s been floating around in the back of my mind for nearly a decade.  My late husband and I loved nudes; we loved the human form for its beauty, its functionality and for the stories it tells about our individual journeys through this life.

Our bedroom walls were – are – covered with nude art, and we collected quite a bit more while owning Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps, an eclectic antiques & vintage business that we put our hearts and souls into.

Heritage Collectibles closed as a bricks and mortar shop soon after John died.  The business itself did continue for a time both on-line and as a vendor at other antiques shops, albeit half-heartedly on my part.  It just wasn’t fun anymore without him.

Johnny wasn’t exactly thrilled when I suggested we open Nude Boutiques as a series of micro-galleries (shops) throughout the United States – and possibly the world!  He had spent far too many years traveling as a sub-contractor for the Navy, and just wanted to stay put.  But I know my husband, and I know he’d get a kick out of me actually following through with a small portion of my grandiose and utterly brilliant plan.

We hope you will enjoy our offerings, and that the Nude Boutique will become your favorite site for finding classy, artsy nude paintings, prints, statues, figurines and other items.  (I have to admit, I’ve picked up a few tacky pieces along the way, although believe me, those were mistakes.)

In any event, thank you for visiting!

Items found on this site can be ordered via PayPal.  The mailing address is P O Box 282, Auburn ME 04212.   In person inspections can be arranged by appointment only at my other business, which is located in Lewiston Maine.  I can be contacted at HeritageCollectiblesMaine@gmail.com.  

In memory of my beloved husband John Kelly Snyder, 20 September 1956 to 21 October 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.  Johnny was an avid reader, who regarded the feel of real books in his hands as one of life’s greatest joys.  History was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a great deal about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly come to find me, so he could read aloud passages that we would then discuss with the wonder of kids enthralled by a new toy.
He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.
Follow my 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.
You can help support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention and grief support organization, by making purchases from the Nude Boutique and Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps.  All profits (after expenses, of course) go to helping us help others.  I’m also a trained volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
(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, 2001.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
