A Lucky Stop!

The Gods were on my side today! I made a quick stop and look what I found!
I've being keeping my eyes open for cases like these for a while and I just never see them.
So I asked "How much?"
$10 each!!!

Start the car!!!

The brown one is staying with me and has found it's home already.
Wasn't I just saying that I need a stack of old suitcases?
My sister has claimed the blue one.
It will be hard to part with
but I love her so I'll give it up for her .

Don't you just love old suit cases?
Oh the dreams the owner must have had! There are several tags and labels still intact, they add such soul and such charm.

Remind me to tell my kids not to pick these tags off!
I'm sure they would love to "HELP" mommy out.


  1. I haven't been able to find suitcases either....but man, did you find treasures! Totally beautiful. And you're a very nice sister. :)

  2. Wow! Those are great! I love the beat up wood on them and the ELY. Yummy!

  3. Which sister?! Please say my Mom is getting the blue one, it's my favorite. Good steal Auntie C

    Yes, I am a very lucky sister, and YES, I DID get the blue one!
    It doesn't have a handle Jess, so don't get any notions of taking it on a plane somewhere and adding to it's character -- it's staying put right here in White Rock.
    But I'll give you visitation rights...
    Thanks Cath, for thinking of me and sharing your special find! Love ya!

  5. These are great finds..! I too love to think of all the dreams and stories they could tell us about... well, I guess, in a way they do, no? These are wonderful treasures - and I'm glad they've found homes where they will be well-loved.


  6. $10!! Lucky you and your sister. I love old suitcases and the phone on top is a nice touch! Your "start the car" comment reminds me of those crazy Ikea commercials!

  7. I love when you decide you really want something and you find them for a great price!
    Oh, the thrill of victory!!!
    Thanks for the sweet compliment on my pillow. It means a lot!

  8. great finds....fabulous wood straps on those cases! :) Laura 52FLEA

  9. Those are so cool! I have been wanting to set up an end table like that for so long. WHat a deal!

  10. These are gorgeous! I collect old suitcases and trunks, too, and I use them like crazy! I'm always amazed how cheap they still are at yard sales. I even found a gorgeous old steamer trunk in someone's curbside trash once. It was covered with travel stickers from all over the world. Needless to say, it came home with me.

    Congratulations on the wonderful find! xo

  11. $10!!! Wow, that was a score! It is the same style as mine! Where did you find those???


Please leave a comment - I'd love to hear from you.
