John recently posted More Maps for my Collection on his blog The Wandering Genealogist. John had managed to purchase from Oxfam, an opshop in the UK, some historical maps for a small fee.
As a reader I am a good customer of our local Vinnies store where I regularly purchase preloved books to feed my reading habit. John's post got me thinking about opshops as places where I might find maps and books relevant to my family research.
I will now cast my net wider, pop into more opshops and browse for more then just recreational reading. The Australian OpShop Listing Site will help me find more places to search.
