I love vintage luggage and cases. I got this set of 4 online, a medium and a small suitcase, a hat box and a toiletries pouch. I think they were from the 60s/70s, no brand.
I bought an avocado green vintage suitcase similar to the 2 here sometime ago and once on a very short trip, I decided I was going to use it. I was carrying it in the airport when it went 'clunk' and the suitcase fell off the handle. I was left holding the hard plastic handle while the rest of the bag just broke off. Oh boy, was it fun running around trying to buy a reasonably priced carry bag to transfer my clothes and stuff into, and putting the broken vintage suitcase into storage while I was out for 2 days because I didn't want to throw away that lovely suitcase. I thought I could glue it back (I was wrong). I made my flight but in the process of all that running around, lost my wallet, ran around somemore and found it back at the bag shop. It was quite an adventure and I hadn't even left the airport!
