Click here to see the brand new school maps that Land of Nod is selling for $249. These do make truly great and stimulating room decor for children, and they can economically cover an unsightly bare wall.
Grown-ups enjoy them as well and can feel free to be creative with a relatively inexpensive map. Some people put pins in the places that they have been or would like to go. One couple who bought a map from me was planning on throwing darts at it to choose the ethnic food that they would next eat. I also had an idea to personalize a map by embroidering a travel or immigration route directly on to the map with embroidery floss or yarn.
I have a quantity of school maps that I will be listing for sale on etsy. Below is an example. Many of these maps are only about 20 to 25 years old and in barely used condition. I will be selling them for $40 to $60 each.
