When I saw this picture in the new Lonny Magazine (amazing, by the way) it solidified one thing for me…
Why the HELL did I not buy the stack of gorgeous vintage suitcases I saw the other weekend at the SoWa Open Market??? ARRRGGGHHH! I was all “I dunno, they seem expensive at $65 a piece. Should I? Should I?” and then stood there for like twenty minutes doing the “I want to buy them buy my bank account will not like it one bit” dance. I finally told myself I could probably find more/better/cheaper ones at Brimfield in July when I go. But we all know that’s a load of hooey- Brimfield is shockingly expensive.
Beyond my insane non-buyer’s remorse, I have been obsessed with stacks of vintage suitcases for a while, but of course more so now that I don’t have any. Just look at these beauties! As side tables, hallway decor or even stacked on top of other furniture pieces they add such a fantastic vintage feel to any space!
Adorable other uses for vintage suitcases- as pet beds and storage for crafting supplies!
How about this bad boy lined with my fave Chenonceau print from F. Schumacher? Wouldn’t that make packing more fun?
