I'm one of those people who still dresses up to fly. I wish stewardesses (not flight attendants) still offered martinis in real glasses to passengers even before takeoff. I loved the circular lounge sofas on the "clipper" jet in episode 1. I can already tell I'll be back for more next week!
For Thrift Score Monday, I want to share a couple of "Pan Am" inspired pieces I found recently. The first, a mossy green carry-on bag, I found several weeks ago in a neighborhood thrift shop. It's in pristine condition, even the interior. I'm awfully tempted to keep this one, but in the interest of keeping my home as clutter free (ha!) as possible, I'll be listing it soon in the shop:
Next up, on Friday after work I stopped at another thrift store and found this cute set of matching luggage:
I love the charcoal grey color and I can't think of anything more 60s mod than a circular suitcase! And train cases are always so glam (and useful!), don't you think? These make me want to slap on my flight attendant (er...stewardess) outfit and saunter through JFK. How about you? I think either (or both) of these pieces would also be fabulous as decorative storage in a guest room.
I'm linking up here to check out other great vintage and thrifted scores in the blogosphere!
