After a year of showing you the art supplies and ephemera I keep in all my vintage suitcases I thought it would be fun to show you the myriad wonderful things I've brought home in my suitcases from my many travels here and abroad.
So on Suitcase Saturdays I'll tell a tiny bit about a trip and show a travel "score." Let's start in Paris!
Le Bon Marche
This trip was late June of 2002 with my daughter Jenny and my best friend Susan. We got to spend 12 days there - magnifique! We stayed in a little hotel on the Rue du Bac a few blocks away from Le Bon Marche, one of the original department stores in Paris and Diners en Ville a lovely shop featuring kitchen and dining ware.
The glass and vase were both on the clearance table at Bon Marche and to this day are still among my favourite things.
