Vintage Suitcases

Thrifted. Not smelly, just several old cobwebs with collected dust. Pretty good shape too. Vintage Suitcases. The smallest is in very good condition all over. The others show their age. All the latches work smoothly. A favourite kind of thrifted find.


Small brown trimmed on tan, paper lined, topstitched suitcase, England, Noton Cheney on Lock.
"Parmount" vintage suitcase, blue banded with tan/navy striped finish


Pretty good inside too, some old staining on left hand upper pocket.

Also found two black cardboard suitcases, clean inside, lots of authentic wear. One is marked Stanford USA, Excelsor Black. It is a worn, clean interior cardbord suitcase.

  4. Very cool! I love vintage suitcases. I used to find them quite often in thrift stores, but it seems now they're harder and harder to find (and more expensive to buy).

  7. My dad gave me his old suitcase which he had made in the 1950's. It's leather with reinforced corners and is really beautiful.I use it to keep all my family history stuff in it, very appropriate I think!

  16. Hi Joy!

    Vintage suitcases are a great find, especially when you get ones that don't smell bad. They are great to store old magazines in and they just look good to use as displays and props.

    Thanks for sharing these at my party (last) week. I am so sorry to have taken this long to visit you this time. I will now have to see what else I missed ;)
