Tea Towels

Finding the license plate map of the U.S.A made me want to look up another great nostalgic geo gift: souvenier map tea towels. Here are some recent tea towel maps of Australia, and for a twist here is a site with vintage map tea towels and tableclothes! I tried to locate information on how much their worth to collectors, but I guest the value is all in the memories. Here is a place that will make your own “bespoke” tea towel but I’m sure someone bright could figure out how to make one on a plotter. Jon Kelley’s Voxword blog has a funny blog about the British obsession with the souvenier map tea towel.
