This charming shop is located in the middle of the sewing machine district. It is chock full of neat old prints, books, magazines and brochures dating from the turn of the century into the very recent past. Finds include old travel posters, Vargas calendar girls, 1920s popular science books, Evergreen reviews and other such wonders.
The owners are up on their material, which they have been collecting for years, and can give you perspective from the artistic or commercial viewpoints. They even have a web site, www.oldeprintshop.com, so you can get sort of a preview.
By the way, the sewing machine district itself is kind of interesting,
even if you aren't in the market for a commercial grade machine.
