Our Philadelphia gallery is located on a charming cobblestone corner of historic Chestnut Hill [view watercolor], in the northwest part of Philadelphia. Following easy directions, The Philadelphia Print Shop is convenient to reach by car or public transportation. The shop is about a half-hour (1/2 hr.) train or automobile ride from center city Philadelphia, about two (2) hours by car from New York City and two-and-a-half (2 1/2) hours from Washington, D.C.
Go to the Chestnut Hill web site for other attractions in our Philadelphia neighborhood.
As of April 2012, the parking lots in Chestnut Hill are monitored by the Philadelphia Parking Authority, and payment is made using the kiosks located in each lot. Visit YouTube to see an instructional video about using the kiosks.
Our Western gallery The Philadelphia Print Shop West is located in another charming shopping district, the Cherry Creek North section of Denver, Colorado. It is easy to drive to the shop from downtown Denver or either I70 or I25, following simple directions, and there is plenty of on-street parking available (call 303-322-4757 to see if one of the spots right by the shop is available!). The shop is about a 30 minute drive from the airport or a 15 minute drive from downtown Denver.
Visitors to both of our shops are welcome to browse through our collection of over 20,000 antique maps and prints, or to view our impressive array of related reference works, rare plate books and atlases. Our knowledgeable staff is always pleased to discuss any aspect of antique prints and maps, or offer advice on any questions you might have.
Holiday Hours before December 25: Sundays 11 to 5 and Wednesdays (December 5, 12 and 19) until 9 p.m.
The Denver branch is open from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.
If you will be in either city and would like to visit outside of normal hours, please feel free to call in order to set up a special appointment. We are closed most major holidays.
In 2010, Chris's wife, Dr. J. Lindsey Lane, was offered a job at Denver Children's Hospital that she couldn't pass up, so Don and Chris decided they would open a new branch there, The Philadelphia Print Shop West, which had its Grand Opening on November 19, 2010.
From the beginning Don and Chris have focused on providing an extensive collection of prints and maps of all kinds, well researched and fairly priced. They have worked happily with institutions, beginning and advanced collectors, those interested in decoration for their home or office, and those looking for an unusual gift. The Print Shop has regularly issued informative catalogues on different topics, including Americana, natural history, maps, genre prints, and fine art prints. The staff has now grown to nine from a business initially consisting solely of the two partners.
The Philadelphia Print Shop, Ltd. exhibits at many of the finest antique shows around the country, and Don and Chris appear as expert appraisers on the popular PBS television program The Antiques Road Show.
Clients may also sign up for our newsletter to be kept up-to-date on other events and our changing inventory.
