Vermont Vintage Paper Placemats

Here is an esoteric one for you all--

For our wedding we were considering using vintage Vermont paper placemats similar to something like this:

Yes, clearly it looks like they could just be bought online, but I was hoping someone out there might know of any restaurants or diners that still USE these so we could collect a few different ones, inexpensively or for free, without going through the trouble of buying one online and having to replicate them ourselves.

Please help! Any thoughts or ideas are welcome.

    Can you buy one and xerox it?

      Adriane did say that she was hoping to find some "without going through the trouble of buying one online and having to replicate them ourselves" so I'm betting that that's exactly what she doesn't want to do.

      Not a solution, but an idea. There are a number of similar (not exact) mats, some less rustic, some more, such as this one that came from a Nat'l Geo. Adventure site.

      You might also want to post on the Northern New England site for help from our friends from VT. Are you using these as placemats, or simply framing them as centerpieces, or??

      Best of luck...get thee to the Northern NE board. Mazel tov on the wedding!
