Vintage Travel Case


This beauty was on the bottom shelf at Goodwill. A little dusty, but no scuffs or scratches. Either it wasn't used much or it was treated with lots of TLC.


In my imagination, the sophisticated lady who owned this piece of luggage traveled the countryside on exciting adventures. Weekends in the city for the nightlife, or meandering through the countryside for the tranquil scenery and fresh air.


She carefully applied her ruby red lipstick before rushing out the door for cocktails before dinner.


 I hope it is content to spend its golden years in my sewing room, holding some of my supplies!

What a great looking piece of luggage. I would suspect that it came with a set and was never used. It looks like it is in perfect condition.

I have one similar that belonged to my mother. I just cannot part with or use it.

Oh you lucky ducky! My mother had one just like it only hers was a turquoise color. She actually threw it away! I was so sad when I found out she'd done that, because I would have loved to have it!

Enjoy yours! It looks like it is in great shape!

I had one like that in blue. I still have my matching blue suitcases, but not that.

I use these little cases for storage-they look great stacked with suitcases! Great condition!
