Look at my “new” luggage! It was my mother-in-law’s, and she gave it to me for my birthday! It’s definitely one of the coolest things ever! There is actually a third bag, a carry on toiletry bag that I got too! It sort of resembles a bowling bag. It’s cool because it is lined with the orange fabric and then again with clear vinyl so that it is spill-proof inside. Very cool! Apparently MIL has another one stashed away , and that one even has a snap-in make-up bag in it! How stoked am I? She even had the keys for the luggage!
Here’s a close-up of the incredible pattern. Samsonite debuted this pattern in 1968. My MIL thinks she bought her set in 1975. It has been all over the world. Last year Samsonite re-released the Fashionaire line as a limited edition in this exact pattern, under their exclusive Black label. It has been updated with modern touches like in-line wheels and extending handles. I’m sure the luggage is much lighter too. This stuff is hernia inducing when filled! I’m planning on using them as design pieces in my home.
Don’t you love the bright orange liner?
Orange, with polka dots, so perfect!
