I’ve looked around for beautiful, functional travel display maps for years. They were all too cutsey, too small, too bright, and so on and so forth. I was really hunting for something beautiful that would go with our decor and something with real push pins to track our adventures. I finally found Wendy Gold on Esty and knew my search had ended!
We have had a “travel bucket list” for our family for about five years now. It is United States focused since Honey and I were both very fortunate to see many, many places outside of the USA but not much at all of our own beautiful country over the last 4+ decades.
I hemmed and hawed over the purchase for months – they aren’t cheap! I polled my mom, sister, bestie and Honey on whether I should go with vintage or current, the USA or the world. I might have driven him crazy over it, because Honey finally suggested that for our 17th anniversary gift to each other “we just get both”. The modern gift is furniture and we had no space or need for that. :-)
I worked with Wendy to modify the banners at the bottoms of the maps as listed in her shop so that they would represent us as a family. She was very responsive and professional. The maps arrived in mint condition and I couldn’t be more pleased. I went with the largest sizes, vintage style maps, black frames and black push pins. (They don’t have glass.)
They are just beautiful hanging in our mudroom and my boys both raced inside after Alaska to see who would add those pins to our map. We decided to only pin places that we all visit together, and we can’t wait to add Pennsylvania, Louisiana and Alabama over the next six months!
