Old stuff makes me happy. Useful old stuff makes me even happier. Leave me in an antique shop, and I'll walk around it a hundred times before I want to leave... much to the hubby's chagrin.
Recently, my love for vintage items has extended to luggage. It started with the train case that is now holding my favourite yarn skeins. Yeah, I know it's weird. No, I don't care what anyone thinks. They just don't make stuff like this anymore, and I love the thought that I can have a pretty bag without waiting for a factory in China to crank one out for me.
Here's my little vintage Samsonite luggage family. Below me is my green Silhouette bag, which I use for carrying my yoga stuff. To the right of that is my blue Sonoma bag, which I use to carry my swimming stuff. Above that is a yellow Weekender bag, which does not have a use just yet. I got it last week at a charity shop for $3.00.
I know someone out there cares about this, so I'm posting this photo for a bit of luggage eye-candy, and maybe for a bit of affirmation. Luggage buddies, can I get a "woop woop!" It's kinda lonely not having many peeps who get my obsession... come say hi!
