I picked this old suitcase up at an auction and immediately wondered "Where has this piece traveled? What was carried in it? Who owned it? Was it ever lost in transit?
Yes, I am drawn to pieces with a history. I want to know the story, you know, the rest of that story! The black round suitcase has seen better days, the edges are frayed and the handle is worn. Yet, wait for it...the key is tied to the handle. Yeah! The lock and the latches on the side still work. The fabric inside is worn, yet it has maintained it's color and pattern. It still has that look of distinction!
Because of the condition of the suitcase, I decided to add some French typography to the top with a white oil Sharpie. My obsession with French typography never ends, from suitcases, to windows, to furniture, if it doesn't move or bite....I see a potential canvas.
From the moment I spotted this suitcase at the auction, I have wondered "What adventures has this suitcase seen?"
It now has a new finish, a new breath of fresh air and is ready for a new adventure! The black round suitcase is available at the Maumee Antique Mall, Maumee, Ohio.
Adventure on, sweet suitcase!
Peace, love & junk,
