I love the logos on these cases 'futura' and 'bon voyage' - such character!
I still haven't quite decided how I am going to arrange and decorate my vintage suitcase collection - I thought I might add a hat and put on my vintage beauty case . . . not sure yet . . .
Vintage beauty case - op shop/thrifted ($5!)
Hat - op shop/thrifted
You will notice that the inside of the suitcase above is water-damaged. That is because, unfortunately, it rained very heavily the weekend of the 'hard rubbish' day. However, it is a testament to the quality of these cases that they are still very beautiful and show very little damage to the outside despite the rain (by the way this photo probably shows the damage a little worse then it looks in real life).
The only sad thing is that the water made the name of the person unreadable and I love to have that sort of thing written in my cases - again it adds such character and gives the case even more history.
I hope this has inspired you to fossack away during your next hard rubbish day - all the best of vintage luck!
