Inspired by the recent addition of the vintage lucite brooches to our shop I have decided to write this series of Top 10 posts inspired by the motifs on the brooches. The idea came to me when I was editing photographs of a 1950s lucite brooch with a little map of Australia on it, so the first Top 10 is inspired by maps.

As much as I love maps (and that’s lots!), I decided to bypass actual maps in favour of cute vintage items with a map on yet with a different and useful core purpose.

When is a map not a map? When it’s a dress or a scarf. This Top 10 celebrates useful vintage items with maps on..
