More Vintage Finds

Spring break has been a success so far!  At least when it comes to checking out the thrift stores/antique stores.  We scored a couple more good finds and Brad is beginning a camera collection.  Here are the latest finds.

My find was a 1940s Aero Pack suitcase.  So far, I haven't been able to find out much about it other than the fact that it is their 1940s style.  I love the shape of it.  It is more of a box shape than typical luggage.  Anyone know what this style is called?

My inspiration comes from Cupcakes and Cashmere.  I would love to come across some others and create this look for our guest room.

Brad is growing his camera collection as well.  He found a 1960s 8mm camera and case.  It appears to be in working condition and we are going to try to find some film for it.  We got a great deal on both items.  A grand total of $18.  3 for the camera and 15 for the luggage.  How did we get such a good deal?  All Brad had to do was change the ink ribbon in the card machine for the lady in the antique store.  Oh, the perks of having a tech savvy hubby!

  1. It was lucky having Brad with you then. My other half is pretty tall so the op-shop volunteers like that he can reach the top shelves to put new stock out.
    The luggage is lovely.
