Video interview with David Mackey of Malvern Maps

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate Inc 610-225-7400 PA License - AB067198

I had a great time filming this video with David Mackey of Malvern Maps hearing how he got interested in maps, and seeing part of his collection and the sort of maps he sells. Locally for Chester County residents and those who grew up in the area, David through his business Malvern Maps sells plates from Railroad Atlases which often show all the land around the various rail road stations up to about a mile away as well as maps of chester County. These make great gifts, and the colors are often in good condition due the atlases not having been broken up and displayed in frames. David also has various farm maps as well. 

Watch the video and catch his passion, then go check out his website,


David is a new exhibitor at the 2020 Chester County Antiques Show being held March 14th and 15th 2020, with an opening night preview party on March 13th 2020 at the Church Farm School in Exton PA. There will be about 42 dealers from the local area, Mid West, Mid Atlantic region and New England exhibiting all sorts of merchadise for sale, furniture, ceramics, china, pottery, jewlery, silver, art, prints, maps, fine art and decorative arts. There will be something for everyone, and antiques are environmentally friendly, being sustainable, so save the date and plan on attending and bring your check book or credit card.

I am managing the show with Deidre Healy, my sister in law, and it benefits the Chester County Historical Society located in West Chester, PA. I like to support local businesses and non profits.

Maps are fascinating, and I like visiting map stores especially in Italy.  Happy Thursday.  A

Maps are fascinating, as Alexandra says. Nice way to connect to people who share this interest..and I know there are quite a few.  Plus great way to highlight the upcoming Chester County Antiques Show.

Hello Nick - as others have mentioned and the word choice for appreciation of  maps seems appropriate:  fascinating.   The details - the history - it's clear the passion is a large part of it.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I agree, and old maps are especially fun to see how the land has changed over time.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I love promoting local businesses and promoting the antique show for the non profit.

It is interesting how people get involved in different hobbies James Dray 

Wayne Martin they reveal a little bit of the story and can rouse the interest to dig deeper and find out more.

Michael Jacobs I love talking to these dealers as it is obvious how much they love doing what they do.

Brian England I hope we get outstanding attendance, the dealers put in a lot of hard work, finding the items, packing and unpacking them, displaying their objects so I am hoping sales will be strong for all involved.

Oh, history and maps - two of my favorite things!

Great information for those coming to the Chester County Antiques Show. I'm sure Malvern Maps will be a big hit at the show in March, Nick!

Debe Maxwell, CRS I am sure he will, these local maps are a great gift for anyone, men or women, for homes or office as they show locations where people lived, who lived there, etc. Great gifts for those who have moved away as well as a keepsake to remember the area.
