leah's ebay finds: faux antique paris map


I love a huge vintage map divided into sections and reassembled on a wall. So chic! Of course, the best kind of antique maps are found while digging through European flea markets. But if a shopping trip to the Continent isn’t in your immediate future, you can always fake it with an inexpensive reproduction — which are easy to find on eBay. This repro circa-1700 Paris map, for instance, measures a generous 41.5 by 35 inches, making it easy to divide into six equal quadrants before framing each of them and hanging them in a grouping. Buy It Now for $27. –Leah H.
