Lucky Me





I just keep on being lucky....I sold a pair of earrings to a woman at the Farmer's Market and the following week she showed up with a great old suitcase for me. I had mentioned to her that I was looking for one for my display. It's from the 1930's and quite beat up~~~~isn't it grand? It's quite musty smelling so I'm letting it air out for a bit. I'll be posting the after pictures in a few days.

Fabulous suitcase!! Your work will look even funner nestled in this vintage holder. What a great find~

This will be perfect....using a vintage suitcase like this works great at shows..I usually put my jewelry that I want gone quickly for sale and put in plastic bags for a rummage box...customers can't resist!

what a cool suitcase! a good way to help that smell move on is to put an open container filled with baking soda inside with the suitcase shut. the baking soda should soak up the smell and leave it much refreshed. lol! i sound like hints from heloise!
