After the Eisteddfod on Tuesday I had a bit of time to kill in town so I thought I would give a second-hand shop a go for some suitcases. I couldn't see anything in the shop but I thought I'd ask if there was anything out the back........so so glad I asked!
My eyes lit up when I saw two huge trunks and some old dusty suitcases, the second trunk was a little too damaged for what I wanted and one of the suitcases was a bit too modern, but the rest were perfect and just $50 for the lot!
I even got a bit of history on the trunk, apparently it belonged to a local family and they used it when they migrated to Australia in 1947. The trunk has their name and SYDNEY painted on top.........can you imagine putting all your belongings into something like this and setting sail for a new life?
They were all a bit dusty and needed a bit of airing, so I gave them all a bath ready to add to my now growing collection.
Now I'm well on my way to having a dream collection which looks a little like this..........
