I would suspect that any library with actual, physical newspapers that
old would not wish to get rid of them.
However, many libraries (including mine) will have such newspapers
available digitally and/or microfilm. You could print out front
pages, ads, etc. and have them blown up to newspaper size.
A quick search online for "vintage newspaper" brings up many articles
of clothing, but also newspapers for as little as five dollars. I
cannot vouch for their authenticity.

Is anyone willing to get rid of old newspapers, or does anyone know where we can buy some for a reasonable amount of money?
