B & N ?



Who knew Barnes and Noble had such neat home decor.  Not me. I mean, don't get me wrong...it's not very extensive...but, what they do have is not something I've found elsewhere.  How did I come to know that B & N carried anything other than books?   I got a gift certificate for them for my b-day, and while browsing the site, I stumbled upon a home/gift section that had some very unique and interesting things.  I ended up ordering this 1739 map of Paris, originally created by Michel tienne Turgot, cartographer to the court of Louis XV.  Sooo excited to get it!


































Take a look at some of the other neat things they have. Honestly, I was really impressed.  The 1879 map of Manhattan was pretty tempting as well!  Especially since the Hubster has an affinity for maps.  But, I thought one would be enough, and the feminine side of me voted for romantic Paris!  Le Sigh!

I had no idea they sold this sort of stuff either! I am kinda digging that flip clock.
