It’s sad that people don’t use these all that often these days. Vintage train cases are like mini-suitcases, intended for carrying luggage or goods for short trips. Think of them as predecessors to the “caboodles” of the 1980s and 90s. I have two myself, one that I use to keep my “for sale” jewelry.
This is my favorite of the two:
It says “Lady Baltimore” on it. How cute?! I got it for $2 at the local charity thrift store. Haven’t seen any as good as this one since. Not like I need more stuff… But this is great for me to use to carry all my handmade/vintage jewelry from place to place and makes for a great display too! I’d like to get a few more like this to use for displays at consignment shops/other places that will allow me to sell my jewelry (when I get to that point).
Here are some lovely train cases I found on etsy.com. All relatively affordable too. Click the images to view the sale pages.
