No longer in college (for two years; not to mention I am pretty settled here in Brooklyn) there has been no need for humungous luggage prepared to take a beating for the 3000 mile trip every three to four months between BDL and SFO or Oakland Airport, so I have been gradually replacing all my luggage with new pieces, starting off with some London Fog Oxford Collection luggage (Thank You Century 21 for making it affordable!) which evoke a greater time of traveling.  Being that those pieces are kind of new, I would like to round out my collection with some older pieces (you know I like old things: typewriters and rotary phones and all that).  Below are some pieces I would like to add because there is nothing like fashionable luggage for those short weekend trips off the Metro North, LIRR, or Amtrak.

Vintage Luggage - Cavanaugh Wardrobe Trunk

A wardrobe trunk from Cavanaugh Luggage Craftsmen from the Etsy show, AngieIris. used to sell some snazzy wardrobe trunks as well.  Oh well, Wish I could snatch and repair my parents’ old samsonites.  Those were classic.
