I'd like to announce one of my favourite finds ever!!!
If you've been reading my blog for a while now you'll already know I am a map freak! Well, at a market on Saturday I stumbled across a box chock full of vintage maps. I have come across such things before at dealer markets only to be told the maps cost $3 to $5 EACH! So I was overcome with joy when the lady selling these announced they were 10 cents each!! Looking through the box I realised I liked almost every single one, so I decided to ask for a price for the whole lot.
Answer "Um, two dollars"?
Well you know those moments you wish you'd brought a getaway car with you? You are so terrified the seller will come to their senses before you get out of there! I passed over my two dollars, stuffed the maps into my bag and moved on with a speed an Olympic sprinter would have envied!
Just look at them!
There are over 70 in total making them under 3 cents each!
A few of the many city maps.
So many National Geographic informative maps.
Loads of lovely European maps.
There is just too much maply loveliness for me to unfold and photograph them all. There are maps of everywhere from Nepal to San Francisco, Middle East to Canada. Suffice it to say I am a very happy girl :-)
I got a lot of great stuff on the same day so watch out for my next post!
