As you have no doubt figured out while shopping for a globe, they are challenging to locate at your local retail stores. The main reason for this deficiency is space. As most desk globes are 12 inches in diameter and most floor globes are 16 inches, both styles require quite a bit of retail space to display, especially if you are looking for variety. Unfortunately, retailers very rarely what to give up space to display a large variety of globes.
Occasionally, you may find a small desk globe at retailers such as TJ Max or Homegoods. However, these globes are typically low-quality items explicitly meant to fill a void in a home’s decor, and they are not intended as educational or reference items. Because of how these types of globes are manufactured, you will find that in most cases, the maps are not updated, or boundaries and lands are outlined based on the requirements of the country in which they are manufactured; this is especially true of globes being manufactured in Asia.
