Vintage Road Maps.

When we were in Denver, we found another treasure at Goodwill (besides the dress): a whole lot of vintage road maps. I have been stalking different vintage maps on etsy.com for quite awhile now. So when I picked up a random map in one of the bins, I realized immediately what it was and I flipped when I kept finding more and more buried in the bin. They are so beautiful. They range from around 1954 to 1967 (or so I can tell). Some of them look like they have never been opened. I plan on framing a few of them as wall art. I am also considering selling some of them on etsy, but I might end up being greedy and keeping them all to myself. What do you think?



The colors! The fonts!
