We're home from our annual five week trek back to the Midwest to see family and friends, and boy, do we have a LOT of junk to deal with! One of the highlights of the trip for me is all the wonderful garage sales and thrift stores in Indiana and Michigan. You can still get amazing vintage collectibles for a quarter back there! I came home with a pile of stuff to try and sell on eBay. So, am I taking pictures and putting things up? NO! I'm writing to you! But it's been a long time and I hate letting so much time go by. We don't have internet for most of the trip (something I'm determined to rectify next year).
I found an adorable 17" hard side suitcase, probably 50's or 60's, at a garage sale and it reminded me of this tabletop tableau I set up last spring. I have a LOT of vintage travel stuff - I'm trying to get a plate for every state, for instance, and I was running out of room for some of the extras. I had a table free in the living room, so, as part of my quest to leave no surface uncovered (ha!) I set this up. I think it's pretty cute, myself.
You can't really see the London tray - here's another picture:
Okay, enough dinking around...off to get some things up on eBay. If you're interested, my "name" is niftiefifties. Don't laugh.
