Earlier in the week when the girls and I met for our usual coffee and chit chat session we got talking about vintage fabrics and things, this got us all inspired to go and take a look at a couple of Op Shops around town. I couldn't believe that one of the first things I laid eyes on was this old brown suit case....the kind I had when I first started school, does that mean I'm vintage also? I've had visions of an old suitcase stack under the window in Megan's new room, to be used for some fun storage for maybe some dolls clothes, puzzles even her latest craft creations.
When we visited my sister and her family in Tasmania after Christmas I started my collection with the big red suitcase, I got it from Ruby's Room in Hobart.....the kind of place I love to shop! The new suitcase may not be vintage like I had visioned but it's going to go really well with the red theme and I think a mix of old and new will look pretty cool.
The orange patterned paper lining on the inside of my new little suitcase is in almost perfect condition. Guess how much this little beauty set me back?
I almost thought it was a miss print, $3.00 sounds kind of crazy considering I would have paid up to $30 for it. Now I'm on the lookout for some more vintage suitcases to complete my stack!
Hope you are all having a nice weekend.
