After my post yesterday sharing with you what I wore vintage shopping. Here are some snapshots from my day out shopping with mum and one of my vintage purchases was a lovely red and beige suitcase that will take pride of place in my newly decorated studio. There were so many lovely items that I wanted to purchase but I limited myself to something that I really fell in love with. I bought the Vintage make-up set that I featured in the Dior post which I fell in love with, I am often an impulse buyer but I made sure that I really wanted it and I didn’t purchase it until I had gone around all the other stores before I bought either the suitcase or the make-up set.
I think if I didn’t live at home with my family and had a lot more space I would fill it with so much tat it would be crazy…I would be like one of those hoarders on channel four, I am trying hard not to hoard so much.
So my suitcase once I got home was a lot bigger then I realised when I purchased it in the shop, but it just makes it more practical for all my trinkets and things that i need to hide away, the inside is lined with a silk style fabric in pink. It is in a lovely condition. You should of seen me on the underground lugging the suitcase about i could of probably fitted inside the suitcase myself. I do think I have a bit of an obsession with vintage suitcases, I think if we had driven I would of bought the place out of all the wonderful suitcases they had! Mum bought an amazing enamelled biscuit barrel, she has been after the perfect one for believe it or not twenty six years….and she finally found it, so was very happy with her long awaited purchase.
Have you found anything lovely on a recent shopping trip?
