Good deal .. or not so good ?

13 years ago

My DD's and I stopped by one of my favorite antique malls today. I found this 6' x 5' vintage pull down school map. In great colors .. aqua, red and jadite green. As a lot of you know those are the predominate colors in my house. It was an old WW II map and had red planes/plane routes all over it, I wish I had brought my camera, I need to start remembering it.

I think I have told you all of my 'lust' .. ( maybe too strong of a word ;) *LOL* ) for metal vintage office furniture .. well I could just visualize this map hanging above the perfect tanker desk that had been repainted in a fun, punchy color.

The map was $75 and in perfect shape, except for natural fading, which made the colors very pretty and muted. Thoughts? Good price, go back and find a way to stuff it in your car or way too high, wait it out. Seems like $75 isn't back for a dramatic, colorful wall hanging of that size, is it? What do you think?
