$312.32 for a map on canvas of Chicago in 1893! I thought Walmart was supposed to be cheap!

$312 and 32¢

I’d love to have one of these on my walls. But three hundred dollars! Why so pricey?

Sure, it’s nice and big at 36 by 54 inches, which translate to three by four and a half feet. The entire piece is actually a little bigger than that, but the image dimensions appear to be 36 by 54.

I wonder where it is made. China? Wouldn’t surprise me. What is the mark up? What does it cost to produce and how much money is the retailer, in this case Walmart, make off of a sale?
