I love old suitcases and have had quite a few over the years. I gave 3 to my daughter and just kept the brown tweed ones. I got them at an auction a while back for $5.00 for both of them. I had not displayed them because I was waiting to find a small one to go on top of them so they would look finished. I went to a yardsale a couple of weeks ago and there was an open suitcase with packets of vintage jewelry in it. Most of the jewelry was priced too high, but there were packages of buttons that were real cheap, so I was picking out the packets of buttons. The gentleman came over and said his wife said if I would take all of the packets I could have the suitcase they were in all for $10.00. I looked around at his wife to make sure that this was for real because you know how men are sometimes about getting rid of stuff and she said yes I could have it all for $10.00. I closed the suitcase, handed them the $10.00 and ran to the car before they changed their mind. It was the perfect fit for the top suitcase I was needing. Don't you just love yardsales.
