Last week I blogged about the newspapers from 1918 I found and framed around my house. This week let’s talk about the vintage map I framed. 🙂
I was digging around one of my favorite architectural salvage spots, Marshall’s Antique Warehouse in Canton, Ohio. She had about a dozen of these cool old maps. I found the one with the most rips and discoloration – because that’s how I roll. It happens to be of Strasburg Ohio. Not where I live, but at least I got the state right. It’s not from 1918 – but it’s still sort of vintage-y. The date stamped on it is 1968. Old enough for me.
While flea marketing over the weekend, I also found this WAY cool frame. I don’t know how old it is exactly, but the back is pretty rusty and the glass is definitely aged. Frames are one of those things I ALWAYS have my eye out for at flea markets and garage sales. You can remove the ugly picture in them, paint the frame and use them as though they’re new!
I gave $5 for the map and $5 for the frame. Pretty pleased with my little $10 wall piece.
