Vintage suitcase

vintage suitcase, originally uploaded by Three Red Apples.

Car boot weekend find...

Perfect for storing fabric, and all for the grand sum of £1.50. Ridiculously happy.

A little bird told me, my sister is coming back from visiting my other sis in France with a few rolls of vintage wallpaper (always, always on the look out for lovely wallpaper to wrap orders with) and plates for me. Ridiculously excited.

I tried very hard not to plaster this post with exclamation marks, but eeeeek!!!!

Did you come back with armfuls of treasures too this weekend? Oh, the thrill of it...!

Nice case! I have so many here - too many here... I use them to store toys, clothes I don't wear but can't get rid of, "important" papers, fabric, whatnots... I have too many yet I always want more. Like this one. I want this one.

Lucky you're much too far away for me to come & "borrow" it.

Thanks lovelies, yep I think we are all in agreement, I would take a lovely old suitcase any day over a plastic storage box.

Beth, I have my vintage goodies from France!! Pics soon...

Hands off, Vic, or I'll come and 'borrow' yours, contents and all ;) (not the 'important' papers though, you can keep those, have plenty of my own)

Hoola Tallulah, you must! You don't always finds treasures, but when you do... :)

What a great find! I am terrible with car boot sales, don't have the patience to browse, but when I do I am always rewarded :D

Great suitcase- I hope you don't mind, I have featured your fabric cabinet on my blog (with lots of links!) as I found it so inspirational!
