Vintage Thingie Thursday!


Well this is my first Thursday participating in
Vintage Thingie Thursday from ColoradoLady!
Please visit her blog for a complete list of participating blogs. I've been peeking for a couple of weeks now and finally decided it was about time I participate! :) Lots of great goodies to look at!


Here is my Vintage Thingie! A beautiful Vintage Suitcase by American Tourister!


I found this just a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it! This inside is PERFECT!



Is it weird that I'm kind of planning on using this for my next weekend getaway?! :)



The fabric is very pretty too! I love everything about it :)


But the best party has to be the key! Yes! It still had the key- and it looks like this :)


Plus it had a "St. Ann Pray for us" little sterling charm keychain that needs to be shined up. I will admit it was worth every dollar, all FIVE of them :) What a steal!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!

I can't believe the inside of that little suitcase is in such great shape! I'd love to visit your shop - you've got some great pieces of furniture in it. First time to visit your blog - it's great! Thanks for dropping by my blog. PAM

Welcome Stephanie. What a find this was for $5. This little suitcase from the 50's is in very good shape and that it still has it's key is amazing.
Hope to see you next week.

I love it! I would use it, too.

Welcome Stephanie. Well you certainly found an American Tourister in great condition. Mine wasn't round but my Barbie doll had a black round one. They just don't have the character in today's luggage like they did back when. And old photo would find it a cozy place to stay.

Stephanie, what a find at a fab price! The key is too cute. You MUST use it! It's perfect! According to her blog, Apron Memories, EllynAnne Geisel uses a rectangular overnighter as her carry on.

That is a great buy! I always loved small accessory travel cases like this when I was a teenager and young adult.
