The other kind of Green...

Oh, you're gonna hate me! Gotta love an unplanned visit to the Goodwill that turns into the score of the week month (maybe) year. Here it is!

Yes! A gorgeous vintage Samsonite suitcase, in practically mint condition! Holy Smokes! I've had the matching make-up Train Case for years, a gift from an old friend. But this baby is too sweet!

And here's the kicker...

Oh yes, my fellow scavengers, that tag in the red circle says $5! No one in the store seemed to share my enthusiasm for such an unbelievable deal, but I'm getting used to that. I snatched it up, wedged it in a shopping cart, and guarded it with my life! But I didn't really need to. Apparently, folks at the Goodwill aren't as obsessive with eBay as I am. Lucky for me! Total geek.

I'm thinking this might get turned into a display piece for fairs and craft shows, as it's just too pretty to alter much beyond that. So, you might see it out in the world soon!

  1. What a great score! I'm thinking of doing a display where I take a nice suitcase or box that's portable and carrying it around "flasher" style with my whole set-up and line within it. I hate carrying around hundreds of pounds of display with me. I'd like to just set up and start selling. So way to go!
