Fab Find: Vintage Maps and Map Box


This was a mega great find...so I kept it! Manchester College was demolishing their administration building so they auctioned off the contents. They had so many vintage maps. I was the high bidder for choice maps ($20!!) and selected several. In another room, they sold the oak map box with three maps. I was the high bidder at $75! Woot! Woot! Fortunately the men's soccer team was on hand to remove it from the wall and tote it to my vehicle for a donation to the team. I sold several of the maps in my booth for tidy profit. I selected my favorite maps, added a french cleat to the back of the map box and hung it in my living room. I love it! I love that I can change the look by simply pulling down a different map.

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it. So come along the backroads of Indiana with Junk is My Life (me), let's find something vintage and do something cool with it! Formerly Junk Journal.
