For The Love Of Vintage Luggage

 I found these beauties in my in-laws basement and instantly fell in love. They were destined for the garbage so I happily adopted them! Apparently they belonged to my husband's great-grandmother.
Don't know what I'll do with them yet (any ideas?), but for now they look lovely stacked on top on my armoire.

Gorgeous!! I feel like I've seen vintage suitcases modeled at the end of a bed, or even set up as a side table, but when there are more than two. I think on the armoire is a good idea!
