I have a thing for old trunks. I love the story that's behind them, and the worn out, loved look that comes with them.
But old trunks usually cost more than I want to pay...
until I found these for super cheap ($35) on Craigslist...
It was LOVE at first sight!
Here's the story that they came with...
Above: On July 29, 1929 this trunk was shipped from Kansas to Colorado on the American Railway Express. It's contents were estimated at $1300 (that's what it says on the original tag...which is still attached!)
Below: This carried the belongings of a U.S. soldier in 1967. It still has the tag attached to the side too!
I love decor that has meaning behind it. Even though I didn't know these people personally, I still feel a connection. We all have great stories to tell.
(Yes...that's cardboard sitting on the bottom of the floor. I need to find some floor protectors for these lovlies.)
Have a great day!
Ther are so many fun ideas to look at from everybody!)
