OK, Op Shoppers, Thrifters, Vintage Collectors and Retro Afficianados, I’ve got a question for you: Are these suitcases considered Vintage, Retro or Antique?
The suitcases store dress-ups & baby blankets. They fit nicely under the bed, & looked more styley than if I had picked something up from the Warehouse. This blue suitcase is an Everlite. I’m loving the pattern on the inside and the handwritten Flight details/bag claim number of a previous owner. At least that’s what I’m assuming, given the TWA bit.
I found the suitcases at Featheston’s Own, back when they were in their first spot on SH2. I love how this Op Shop has moved locations twice because it’s grown out of their original unpowered garage at the Featherston Community Centre. There was a need in the South Wairarapa for this type of organisation, and I’ve seen the positive impact it has on Featherston.
Do you have any unique op shopped or thrifted storage solutions? Got any pics or ideas for creative cupboard space? I’d love to see/hear. Our family has a 1940s cottage/villa in our sights that has almost no built in storage. (It was built in the era of dressers and wardrobes) Am starting to search out affordable & hip ideas.
Linking up with Max from the Op Shop Show-Off, Chris & Julia and their Nifty Thrifty @A Living Space, and Sir-Thrift-a-lot . Also linking up for the first time with Liz from Me and My Shadow, host of Magpie Monday.
