Trend Report: Upcycled Suitcases

I really loved this vintage clarinet case used to hold postcards and travel mementos from Sparrow King's recent post. I started looking around for…

…something similar and came across these amazingly artful up-cycled suitcases on Etsy. What a fun way to express your personality on the road! When you're home, they can serve double-duty acting as decor — no need to hide them in the closet.
