Last weekend my DH and I went antiquing for a short while.Two new stores opened locally. The second one was a pleasant surprise.I found this vintage school globe for only $12.I just love it. You can see the names of the countries that do not exist any more.Czechoslovakia,Yugoslavia , USSR. I was thinking to buy a new one because I did not believe I could find a vintage one at a price I could afford.But it turned out I was a lucky girl. I also bought this beautiful scale.I hope it is vintage.The most important thing is that I like it and it is in good working condition.I am a practical gall.I like to use the things not only to decorate with them.
