Selling My Crap on eBay, Day 6: Globes! Globes! Globes! (regular edition)

This is Day 6 of a 21-day series. For more scoop on the who/what/why, go here. For more detail on the whole, freaky globe-fixation thing, go here.

Globey in a cubby, I know, I know, it's serious

If you’re a traditionalist, today’s installment in the globe pantheon might be for you.

This particular globe was purchased from a vendor at the legendary Kane County Flea Market, a semi-rural county which borders on suburban DuPage County and is home to a Tevatron particle acceleratora major league farm team and a really, really good frozen custard stand whose name I (fortunately) cannot recall.

CU of a "deco"-like globe base

This base, it has gravitas!

While there’s nothing strictly valuable about this one, I always admired the soothing shade of aqua the makers chose for the oceans, the land-mass tones of yellow, pink and lavender, and the Deco-y base. It looks very handsome on its own, as you can see here, on (temporary) display in the built-ins Chez ‘Tater. (Here it is in context of the communicatrix and its globe brethren.)

We will let this go for a song, the ‘tater and I, shipping/handling and a nominal something, as befits an objet so lovingly carted halfway across (sorry!) the globe.
