I found a vintage Samsonite suitcase for five bucks at my local thrift store! I would say it's in fair condition, but that gives it character, I think. It lets me know its has been used. I am currently decorating my apartment in an "International Travel" theme and this fits perfectly. I've been searching for vintage suitcases and travel trunks I can use as decoration and furniture. I will use this suitcase as an open display for some of my books.
