Prints of Old Maps/Documents in Massachusetts Sign In/Join 
posted
Hi

I just moved to a new home and am looking to decorate my walls with some old looking prints of maps and documents. Does anyone know of a good store (antique shop, thrift store, old book shop, etc.) in the Massachusetts area that sells this type of stuff?

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. Boston area? Birkshires? I remember there was a way to age paper when I did decoupage back in the '70s but I forget how. Maybe google it and find some local topo maps to practice on.

I guess it would depend on where in Mass you are. There is a place called Oldies in Newburyport that has a lot of old maps.
