Bon Voyage!






Kawtar and I found these amazing pieces of luggage a few weeks ago while thrifting. We do try to focus on clothes...but when you see pieces like this, there is no way to pass them up. After some research we found out that they're very high end travel pieces, made from the same material and manufacturers as Louis Vuitton and Neiman Marcus luggage. They've probably seen more of the world in their lifetime than most of us will ever see and are still in phenomenal condition. Most of my suitcases don't last more than a few (3 or so) trips (the zipper or fabric tears).  I guess the saying is true -- they don't make 'em like they used to.

  1. I love these! I have such a fascination with old luggage, it all seems very romantic to me, & makes me want to put on a hat & gloves and tearfully wave goodbye with a handkerchief out of the window of a steam train...
