Don’t think of this as a map store, think of it as an art museum that won’t bore your children. Schein and Schein sells a staggering assortment of antique prints and maps, each one with a geography and history lesson built right in. Some of their maps are quite reasonable and would make a perfect gift, but make sure you explain that the little country on their map hasn’t been called “Belgian Congo” for years and that Colorado is now a state.
