Thrift shop gems

Ever since I was young I love to go to flea markets, thrift shops etc. Queens day was (is) the highlight of my year, that's the day we celebrate the queen's 'birthday'(now it's a king and therefor called Kings day). And besides dressing up in orange, drinking beer and partying there's also the tradition for the biggest flea market ever! Loooove it!

Anyway, I still visit the local thrift stores regularly and sometimes I find amazing things. My thrift gems as I call them. One of these gems is an old school map of Scandinavia. Saw them many times on Pinterest or Instagram but never found one myself (except for really expensive ones, and me as a bargain hunter just couldn't pay that for it). So when I found this one I could jump with joy, and guess how much it was? Only 5 euros! (O-M-G)

It's not in a perfect state, and the person who owned it before me tried to fix it with duct tape (why?!!?) so had to peel that off first and taped it with proper tape.
I looove how it's hanging above my couch, don't you?...
