New to the Shop This Week- Vintage Storage Solutions



No matter what kind of vintage treasure you need some storage for, whether it be dresses, linens, toys or just bits and pieces..I think we've got it covered!



All kinds of vanity cases, suitcases, doctors bags and gladstone bags, from the rusty and crusty to immaculate inside and out.





This has to be my personal favourite though, a 40s case with bakelite handle. We most often see these with the handle in front, which would have been a school case. I think this may have been a beauty case, as the handle is on top and there is a little mirror inside the lid.




Lovely old hat box. We have another which I forgot to photograph, a cardboard one from Myers at Coorparoo with the original recipients details, dating it to 1968.

Ladders. Kitchen or garden, I don't think I need to say any more!


More  baskets than you can poke anything proverbial at.













Old washing machine tub, ideal for a bonfire or perhaps a herb or cottage garden.






This one is designed as a picnic basket, but I think it would great as a sewing basket or to store haberdashery items, as it has 3 layers with lift-out trays and lots of separate sections.





Collapsible clothes airer, somone has thoughfully covered the wooden rails with plastic tubing so the timber doesn't deteriorate, maybe that's why it has lasted so well.

Yup, you've definitely got the vintage storage solution for every occasion!
I love the 40s case too, and the mustard colour suitcase, and the hat box. Rather partial to the baskets too. Lovely lovely...

Fabulous items, Kitty. I'll be dragging out our 2 vintage suitcases from the loft, most definitely! Love the idea of re-using the washing machine tub. xx

Vintage suitcases are my favourite things to collect! I'd quite gladly add the red, yellow & blue ones to my collection, as well as the picnic basket!

Two of those suitcases look familiar, I posted about my visit. Once again I had a great time visiting, you better watch out you might find me hard to get rid of over time.

Ohh loving the picnic basket by the way.

Hello Vintage said...

Great collection of suitcases there - amazing. I knew right away what the washing machine tub was as my Mum used to use a ringer washing machine until I was in my mid teens. It was so old fashioned but as we were on rainwater my parents believed it was the way to use the least amount of water.

A brilliant solution - and love that tweedy brown make up bag.
