happy suitcases means happy travelers

"We took the road less traveled, and that made all the difference." -Robert Frost
Well, we really didn't. We took a road that a lot of people have traveled to D.C.
Seeing all of the sites!
The Flea Circus and family saw all of the museums and memorials and honored this great country. So, with travel comes suitcases and...

We collect suitcases. When I say collect, I mean that we really do have a good collection and these items just seem to magnetize towards us. These suitcases are fabulous because they...
1. Have a hard shell
2. Are vintage 
3. Have unique fabrics inside
4. Have many stories and thinking about all of the places they have traveled too is just fun
5. Are inexpensive and make great display pieces

So what can you do with these suitcases?
Make them into a table
Use them to travel
Store magazines in them(my husband has no idea how many I have ;)
Store children's books
Hold dress-up clothes in a playroom
Tie a ribbon around them and display them
Stack them

Share your ideas!
