About the maps… Your star will be mounted with an original map of your chosen location carefully selected from my collection. A label will be tied to the ribbon detailing the age of the map used.
My maps vary in age from 20-120 years old. The majority are 1960s or older.
As original maps are used, on occasion there might be a slight crease or imperfection, adding to the charm.
Your location could be a:
- country, region, county, area, town or village
- island or group of islands
- sea, lake or coastal area
- star constellation or star sign
- depending on the location, I can’t always detail specific roads, addresses or landmarks and modern holiday resorts and new housing estates are rarely marked on vintage maps as they often didn’t exist at the time the map was printed
- if an exact place is not labelled on the map the location can still be centralised on the heart and you can choose to mark it with a tiny diamante if you would like.
