A Simple Tip // Vintage Suitcases as Storage

Last week Erica and I checked out a new thrift store in Knoxville, TN called Nostalgia. I brought home several items, all for my son's bedroom makeover.

The biggest ticket purchase I made was this vintage suitcase, at $25. Nostalgia had a wide array of suitcases throughout the store; but I was specifically looking for ones that were fairly large and blue. This one totally fit the bill -- even if it might cost a bit more than one you might find at a Yard Sale or Goodwill, for example {of course, you also have to go searching a bit more often to find those steals}.

This suitcase has already been put to work, as storage for toys that fit easily under my son's bed.
