Thrifty Vintage Suitcase

I needed a small mirror and I saw one at the thrift store the other day. I headed back there today to see if it was still there. It was. Its just the perfect size for my craft booth. While I was there I found 2 matching vintage suitcases in green. They are in great condition. These are smaller than the ones I have been finding lately. I like opening them and seeing the ruffles. I have been really lucky lately with the suitcase finds. I did find 2 red ones the other day. I thought I would never pass up red suitcases. I did. They were not in good shape in the inside. At all. The outside was a little beat up but still nice. I am using them for storage not really display so dingy (icky) insides won't do.
I found a vintage Fire King dish. I have two mugs in this print. I only paid $1.50 for this. I think that is the cheapest I have ever paid for vintage Fire King.

I have listed my Primitive Raggedy Ann Dolls in my Etsy Shoppe. One sold already. Hooray! I love that. Someone really wanted to be her Mommy asap. (Thank you Lauren!) I do also have those patterns I promised to write up. They are in the Etsy Shoppe too.

I have been playing with needle and thread this week. A whole bunch. Times a ticking and I like staying busy until the show is here. But I have another show coming in May so I will just keep on sewing till then too. I am going to do a practice set up later today so I know how I will set up my table at the craft show. I have a few ideas. I am going to have lots of photos of the day of the show. I will be having twitter updates so you can see how the day is going. I will also use my twitpic to upload some photos. I will have lots to share the day after here on my blog. This is the first year for this Indie show. I can tell you there is going to be a bunch of fun vendors there. I saw the list. I want to go shopping. If you have never been to an Indie Craft Show. I totally recommend checking them out. Look in your area. They are popping up all over the place. Some people get mad cause they don't have any near them so they go and start one up. That is what a few of the gals did for this Odd Duck Show I am attending this weekend. So if you can't find one. HAVE ONE!


The old suitcases remind me of the set my mom and dad use to have. Certainly brings back some memories.


This suitcases are really magnificent!!
