This week I’ve been inspired by vintage suitcases. I found this one awhile ago in an antique shop and I’ve inherited a couple from both of my grandmothers. They’re all a bit dirty and need a good wipe down, but I want to use them for storage in my studio. I’m not quite sure how I will use them, but they’re much prettier than boxes and totes, don’t you think?!
I just love how these old suitcases were made – sturdy and elegant. Samsonite knew what they were doing and that’s no lie. I would love to air-travel with this precious case, but nowadays the airlines are so rough with everything. Each time I check a bag, its either so smashed that it’s unusable or it’s ripped. Am I the only one with this problem? They must have been much gentler back then, or maybe the didn’t pack in as many passengers at once. Either way, I don’t want to chance it.
How about you, do you have any vintage suitcases put to good use? ♥R
