    Love the doggie bed! Here in Sacramento, at our airport, there’s an art installation next to baggage pick up, that has a beat up turquoise steel baggage carrier with luggage stacked about 30 feet in the air. Old colorful luggage…everyone loves it!

    Fabulous ideas Kristie! I see luggage all the time when I shop in Altanta. Such valuable pieces from history and such fun colors they are available in. Perfect for someone wanting to add that pop!

    I have some vintage luggage pieces from my mother-in-law that you would die for Kristie! I have them on a suitcase holder (like the above director’s chair.) I love looking at them! Cool pictures!
