You guys. I love these.

 I usually keep my cool at estate sales. 30s blouse for $1.00? I'll jump up and down after I get home. But for some reason I saw these at a sale this weekend and squealed.

They're by "Skyway", one of my favorite vintage luggage brands, and I can't wait to take them on an adventure!

 Looking around the interweb there seems to be more pieces to the set (already sold of course), like a traincase, and even a purse! I'm determined to collected them all. They are my Pokemon.

*Update* I searched high and low and found a traincase. More squeals!

 So if any of you find the missing pieces to this set and want to sell it, please let me know!

I am glad you like them tho! <3

Cassie Stephens said...

I do believe that squealing is not only acceptable in this case but required! How completely perfect for you is this set of luggage?! If only it had cats embroidered on it...now that would be a full blown scream, not a squeal, right? Love it!

AnnaBananaCupcake said...

Absolutely beautiful. I don't know what I would have done if I had seen these for sale. There are times when you just can't contain your squeals or gasps. Good luck on finding the rest of your collection.
XOXO
