Interesting Craigslist Find

This antique map display found on Craigslist is a unique way to showcase photographs, ephemera, even feathers found on a walk.  What would you use it for?  An idea board with fabric swatches and tearsheets? Jewelry? Flowers?
I think I may use it to place personal photos in my stair hallway...hung on the wall.  Unless, of course, you have a better idea!


  1. A great find! It has some 3D depth (the little shelves). It might be nice to intersperse photos with some memento objects, e.g. baby's first shoes, a grandmother's lace handkerchief, etc.

  2. I am so jealous of this! I agree, it would be fabulous holding photographs and personal artifacts.
    Thanks for the note you sent me. I enjoyed reading your profile :)

  3. Andie I'm with the other gals. Maybe an alter of sorts with family pictures and crosses and interesting objects? I know you've got lots of those! *winks* Was it formerly a map display or for tourist brochures? Very interesting piece. I have an old french theater playbill display case that I use for pictures. It's also quirky cool. Vanna

  4. I love this. I think photos interspersed with other bits and pieces would be lovely and you can change them whenever the mood takes you. You seem to be the Craigslist queen!

  5. wow! that has potencial!!! are you going to paint it?! i would paint it white to bring it out and then it would be perfect to display some of your photos and stuff. some fresh flowers in small old bottles would be gorgeous too. can't wait to see what you'll do of it!!!
    About the heart lavender pillows! I do shipp to the US. On my blog's sidebar i now have a Dawanda shop to make things easier. Maybe you want to have a look -
    I'm also on the process of making some gorgeous stuff using other scented bio essencial oil such as jasmin and mimosa!! I'll post them too.
    Have a gorgeous day and thanks for stopping by Andrea!

  6. Me again!!! sorry! but thought that if it's not toooooo big it would be gorgeous on a breakfast area with newspaper and loved magazines for a relaxing kind of thing or next to the sofa for the same purpose or if you have an outside music corner on your porch for ex, as i do, it would be very helpful and pretty!

  7. Ms. Divine whats the statis with the toile wallpaper?? Richard at

  8. Nice piece. You could display a variety of things in the slots.
    Thanks for stopping by and reading along.
    I will be back to visit and check previous posts when I have more time.
    Stay warm.

  9. Andie so glad you're shopping with me and helping to feed my shopping obsession...Ahem..I mean pay the bills! Lol! Ummm girlfriend don't you wear UGG boots? (Death on your feet!!)... Just sayin' that coat would look perfect with them....*winks* Vanna

  10. Vanna, that never occurred to me. LOL!
    Where can I send the money for the other two?
    You have the coolest stuff!
