Art Booth Displays – Vintage Suitcases

My first show for the season is coming up on Saturday October 18th. I’m busy getting my inventory ready, but I’m also adding new things for my display this year.  I’m always looking for items that can do double duty for me, i.e. storage and display.  This vintage suit case that I picked up at a flea market is perfect to carry some of my journals and note cards and then display them during the show.You know me, I’m all about vintage and re-purposing.
