Top 20 Ways To Reuse Old Suitcases

I was at a thrift shop the other day and saw all these old suitcases. Really got me to thinking about my past life where I lived out of a suitcase. My first set of luggage was a set of Samsonite given to me in 1972. I had that luggage for years and finally gave it away. There is alot of luggage out there in fact on Etsy there is 3244 vintage suitcases for sale!

    The most amazing use that I’ve seen is at a train show where a miniature layout was built inside the suitcase. The owner had seen a plan for one in a 1948 magazine!
