Baggage Or Luggage ?

Do you have baggage? well I do lots of it and some good luggage LOL and have sold some of it and keeping some a little longer however a friend is always wanting to buy my vintage alligator luggage and an old hat box luggage piece. I think I want to keep them a little longer ,but anyway on my last trip up to Lexington I did pick up a couple pieces she can buy if she likes them
This make up carrying case is a American Tourister  and in very good shape that someone gave me recently and I used it this weekend


here are my 3 new vintage pieces, the hat box on the bottom is in great shape 

I really like this Samsonite hat box piece of luggage , did I say that already?

This little red Samsonite piece is very good shape I know Brenda will want it ,those are my toes LOL

It has been a real cloudy day today or I would drag the alligator set out for pictures and I don't have good lighting in my house due to lots of big trees in my yard.
I'll get it the next sunny day 

ps SOMEBODY help me stay out of JoAnn fabrics store!! I want every charm and piece of jewelry in that store
Oh and ALL the rhinestone braid back where the trims are LOL OMG love it ALL

linky parties to check out 


  1. GREAT finds. I love them all and have a red Samsonite suitcase like yours- xo Diana

  2. Sounds like you know the fabric store layout..LOL. I love sweet pieces of much. Oh yeah, if I ever got my hands on alligator luggage I'd keep it. I have some off white samsonite. Those pieces look new. xoxo,Susie

  3. I try and stay out of the Fabric store too, not easy at all! I love your luggage...and yes, dear, I too have baggage...and bags and luggage! LOL

    Happy VTT

  4. Oh my goodness, the luggage makes me remember there was a time when you would travel with multiple bags and even special ones for cosmetics and for hats. Big sigh. Now we stuff a single backpack to the gills so we we don't have to check a bag. Those were the days!

  5. thanks for coming over to my blog and leaving such a sweet comment.

  6. I can't help anyone stay out of a fabric store. While you are looking at all of those goodies, I would be oohing and ahhing over the fabric! may think this is TOTAL bologna, but just this morning I was thinking about your blog and stopping by for a visit. I SWEAR! That's it. I'm putting you on my side bar so I can keep up with you!

  7. You may have a lot of baggage, but it is worth keeping. I have my mother's vintage overnight bag.

  8. You have some great vintage pieces! Thanks for linking to the Open House party.

  9. What great pieces, Janice...and your toenails match the red! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. I have a little red Samsonite makeup suitcase in the back of my closet. Not sure what to do with it, but can't part with it either!
    I love your "new" hatbox.

  11. I love vintage luggage. Your pieces all look like they're in really good condition. That hat box with the handle is so darn cute!

  12. You have some nice pieces. I love finding vintage luggage. It's such great storage.

  13. I love the hat box too! Our Joannes has cut their jewelry section down to nothing just 2 rows..I am off to Hobby Lobby


  14. Those are great pieces. I especially love the older hat box. Now, listen up, stay away from JoAnn's Fabrics!!! OK, did that help? I am guessing not. LOL
    Have a blessed weekend, Ginger

  15. It's MY SAMSONITE!! And the very piece I always coveted, for the hatbox/bandbox did not come with our four-piece set in the fifties. I can still smell the scent of exciting travel when I open that little train case---Coty powder and Evening in Paris and whatever Revlon I was partial to at the time.

    And Coppertone---that scent will ever evoke Summer---what a delightful memory you've kindled. I'm so glad to discover your blog!


    PS I have teacups in MY tree.

  16. Love your vintage suitcases!! I had a round one like that and got rid of it about 20 years ago...UGH!! That was when i was young and stupid!! LOL!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!!
