I picked up a train case at a local thrift store for $7. It was sad and coming apart. On the inside the lining had pulled loose and the outside had lost its shine. A little hot glue gun, some cleaning and everything looks good again. It reminds me of the one my mom had when I was young. I think I have a new overnight bag now. Totally glampy chic if I say so myself.
*UPDATE: The mirror is in the snap case that is shown in this picture. The mirror is fine, but the backing that makes it a mirror has aged and isn’t very useful. I’m going to try and find a replacement the same size so that the case is fully functional. Would you travel with it? I know it’s heavy compared to my little soft sided bag that I hid away inside our check bag. I’m even debating having our creative friend who does airbrush art for guitars have a go at it. Too much? Would it ruin it’s retro appeal? Hmmm… I’ll let you know what I decide. Maybe just some travel stickers to show where I take it on trips? I haven’t tried it out yet to see how much I can fit into it. My tablet fits and I know any liquids have to be a certain size and in a ziploc bag. Maybe I need an outfit as retro as my case for traveling! Wouldn’t that be a hoot!
