Hitting the Map Lottery


Yesterday, walking by my local Housing Works shop, I noticed a woman in the window sorting through a bin of vintage maps. I stopped. Could it be?! Do my eyes deceive me?! The grocery store be damned! I had to go in.

JACKPOT!!! 

I came home with 8. As my grandmother would say, I just couldn't pass them up.

What will I do with them?! 

Not sure. Perhaps they will line the envelopes of a lucky client's stationery or invitations. Or perhaps my own. OR!! Maybe they will provide backing for custom wedding invites. A friend of mine did that with vintage wallpaper for her wedding invites & I've been dying to try it ever since.

So, you know, just mentioning that I have these. Just in case, you know, anyone is thinking "wow, I wish I knew someone who had vintage maps. I could really use them in my (custom paper product here)!"

I am so freakin' excited about finding these things that I'm beside myself!
