Style Sourcelist: Vintage & Retro Luggage

For the regular traveler, vintage and vintage style luggage may not be the best option. For occasional use, I love bringing along my vintage suitcase (it makes a great carry-on!) but one of my favorite things about retro luggage is that it doubles as home decor! Stack them up for a bedside table, or create a vignette somewhere for a little reminder of the last escape you took.

  1. This vintage Samsonite suitcase in camel color from Etsy seller AMradio is perfect double-duty material.
  2. JCrew hit the nail on the head with this Globe-Trotter Centenary 28" suitcase with wheels. The price tag is high, but man is it good looking!
  3. Estatehound, another Etsy seller, found this adorable vintage Samsonite Ultralite two tone set. We love the colors, and would definitely find a place to display these!
  4. La Vida Vintage Brown Plaid luggage, available at Overstock, adds a bit of flare to a trip.
  5. Extra large and with a name to match. The Cruiser-Aider, from the 1930s, is a hefty lug for a suitcase, but a pretty great piece for a home. From Etsy seller GallivantingGirls.
  6. Harken back to an era of travel by steam ship with this set, dubbed "The Producer Series." Available (along with a few other fantastic retro sets) on Steamline Luggage.
  7. HausProud, on Etsy, calls this cute suitcase with no identifiers the "Best Suitcase Ever." I think that made me like it even more!
