Where to find maps to use in crafts

Since we're crafting with maps this week for Map Week, you probably are wondering where to find old maps, right?

Here are some ideas where to find maps:
  • Look for atlases at thrift stores (Goodwill or Salvation Army)
  • You can find National Geographic magazines all over and they often have maps;
  • People have old maps that are no longer pertinent.  Just let everyone know you're looking for them;
  • Yard sales; 
  • My favorite store:  Lancaster Creative Reuse.  (Located in Lancaster, PA.  You can also find other Reuse stores around the country on their website.)
If you start telling people you want old maps, you'll start finding them all over the place!
