Durabilt Luggage Ltd, Vancouver, Canada - Vintage Suitcase

I can not imagine carrying this piece of luggage anywhere let alone filled. We are spoiled by wheeled suitcases with long handles. This large piece would be a great base for a suitcase tower or hall table. The Metal label on this suitcases reads:

Anne Lorys, who writes Fiona and Twig posted a great hallway suitcase entryway table/tower. Check her link. I saw another great idea (and can't find the link) where the suitcases were mounting as shelves (like the floating shelves from IKEA) and used for storage.

  1. I love old suitcases and trunks and have several. I use train cases- several of which I decoupaged with Victorian paper - for my make up and toiletries. I always wonder who used these and where have they been?

  2. A great suitcase. I can remember my Dad lugging two of these walking to the station when we went on holiday!

  3. Old suitcases are fascinating - the stories they could tell! I love them all stacked up in a room. But you're right - today's luggage is so much easier to use. But I love the leather handles, dont' you?

  4. Thanks for the comments today. I have seen so many great blogs that showcase multiple uses for old suitcases. Great for storage and for decorating.

  5. Hi I've got a set of luggage (three cream coloured with pink silk lining) They are all from Durabilt wirh labels on all three. One vanity case and two sized up suitcases too. Do you know anything about them? I have just acquired them, so trying to research them now. Many thanks.
