I recently came into possession of a thick Metropolitan Bay Area street guide, once owned by a San Francisco realtor. The big book was outdated and, quite literally, falling apart. Lucky me! And now, lucky you!

(If you're more inclined to another city, that's okay too. You can choose another in the Options pulldown when you add to your cart. )

I made this double-sided garland with pieces punched from an out-of-date Metropolitan Bay Area road atlas. Yours will be made from the same atlas as the one shown (or a similar one if you choose a different city), but each garland is unique.

* 10 feet decorated length
* Each scallop measures 1.5" across
* Strung on red and white cotton baker's twine
* Extra string and loop on each end for hanging

This garland should be displayed inside or outdoors on a dry day. Paper and water don't get along. Also, though this garland makes great nursery decor, please display it out of reach of small children.

I package my garland in a clear plastic sleeve, with a Palimpsestic label (see second to last photo for an example.) All garlands are shipped via USPS within 3-5 days.

If you need a particular length, different string color options, or more strands than I have listed, let me know. There's a lot I can do to make this decoration just right for you, so please don't hesitate to convo me using the "Contact" link on the right. If you're just looking for a version of this garland that's not city-specific, try here:

I rely on the serendipity of thrift stores and garage sales for most of my maps. When I'm looking for a specific map, I purchase the lowest condition copy available from a dealer. I never use new or collectible-quality materials in my map banners or garland.
