Antique, vintage and historical maps give us a sense of where we’ve been and how we got here. They can be a unique conversation piece and are ideal for home decor. Educators, librarians and museum curators often seek out antique, vintage and historic maps while history buffs and map lovers frequently find unusual treasures within. Many people enjoy gifting friends or family with ancestral maps that represent their roots and personal history.
Developed by the owner due to his own love of antique maps, this business offers an extensive variety of vintage antique maps and prints including one-of-a-kind maps from all over the world. As a multi-channel business, sales are generated through four avenues: its website, Amazon Store, eBay Store and Etsy Store. Product inventory is 100% in-stock. The price includes about $100,000 of inventory (Retail Value Approx. $400,000).
