Sometime in February or March the kids and I drove up to Tacoma to pick up some maps.
I won a bid on Goodwill.com, but it was for local pick up only.
So we drove almost 3 hours one way to get them.
I am so glad we did.
One was a nine map classroom set.
Illustrated American history maps.
Starting in the 1600’s up until the early 1900’s.
My dad remembers this set from elementary school.
That was in the 1950’s.
Although it was a hard decision, I split the set up and decided to sell some in my Instagram shop, @coltoncadence.
Three of them have sold.
There are still two available.
They are gorgeous.
I’m probably going to regret selling them.
I’ve never seen anything like them.
It’s kind of like telling the story of the first Thanksgiving.
One of the maps that is still available has the Lewis and Clarks route on it.
I kept four of them for us.
One is in the playroom.
One is in the little guys room.
If you want one, go check out what’s left (1829 and 1790)!
home is…an illustrated history.
