Vintage Travel Trunk and Luggage LOVE ~ Maybe my favs eva!!!!
So yesterday Kristen went to an estate and came home with his usual dining room table, filling haul of treasures, (show you that soon I promise) but what he may or may not have known is he came home with a dilemma for me. A day later my heart is still moving from my chest to my stomach every time I see them. How am I going to part with them?? I cannot keep them ~ house too small. So let me just say they better sell to someone lovely, ha, because HOW for the LOVE of all things vintage, am I going to SELL them?Ahhhhh
Newbies to this blog may think I am over exaggerating my love of these trunks of delight but you can read about this early affair here.
These ones are perhaps some of the most special ones we have had due to the amazing quantity and condition of the travel labels/stickers on them. Particularly the trunk and hat box. There is also a suitcase aswell.
Anytime I see old New York advertising on anything I just love it!
This other hat box has none and has largely been overlooked by me, but on any other day I would adore it. For a start it is leather, it is in perfect condition and
just look at the wonderful orangey interior.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. They seem to go super fast these days don't they ?
