My fiancé and I are doing a map themed wedding. We love the idea of doing world globes as our centerpieces. I’m looking for vintage-y blue world globes, probably 10 inches or so.
However, we’re having a hard time finding affordable ones (like under $20). Has anyone stumbled across a good source?
I’m searching on eBay and found a great globe (that’s too expensive) on Urban Outfitters. Suggestions would be great! 🙂

Thrift stores, especially if you don’t care that they’re completely accurate. (Like you don’t mind them still saying USSR or East/West Germany.)

i’m not sure what style or colors youare looking for but…12.99 on amazon – you may be able to resell after the wedding – i bought candelabras for center pieces and i’ve probably had 15 people ask me where i bought them after seeing pictures
These are a little over budge at 26.00
Maybe this is an option if you can find globe ornaments for cheap
this is over your price range, at 25.00 but they light up. how cool is that?

Hello! We are doing a travel-themed wedding as well and are using the “1949 French Desktop Globe” from Restoration Hardware as centerpieces on some of the tables. I scoured ebay and the internet and was really frustrated trying to find something of nice quality until I saw these! They are a little smaller than your “average” globe, but I looked at both sizes in person and preferred this one because it didn’t block your view of other people across the table.
Anyway, I’m actually going to be selling mine after my June 9th wedding (and just posted in the Wedding Bee Classifieds!) so if you’re intersted in them let me know! I have 10 globes that i paid $530 for, but I would be willing to sell them for $300 plus shipping (unless you want to pickup here in Michigan?).

@woodapple: Hiya! Were you able to find globes? if so where? We are doing a travel themed wedding and are looking for a few globes to decorate. Not as centrepieces, but as decor on the registry table, cake table, gift table etc.
