A customer came into the Shoppe today and I asked my usual question....
"Are you looking for anything special?"
Usually I receive the standard "no", but today she had purpose.
I would say she was in her late twenties......
And I don't get many younger shoppers very often.
She had been thumbing through a Pottery Barn catalog
and found they merchandised and also sold
vintage reproduction suitcases.
She didn't want to pay their price,
And wanted it "today".
She had been to every store in town to no avail.
Can you imagine her surprise when I proceeded to
Show her not just one, or two, or three old suitcases,
But she had her choice between about thirty different ones.
I've been collecting these for years simply because I love the idea of
What they represent.
Families or individuals traveling to new and different places.
Packing their most needed items and
Most probably traveling by car or bus.
Always with a hat box in tow as well....
A girl had to have her hat.
She also loved all the old books and bottles and
Since mine were not for sale,
She went about her day looking for some that were.
I just adore the story these old things tell,
If only we stop and listen.
Have a beautiful weekend.
