I had seen the idea of repurposing old luggage for storage and was finally able to locate a piece just for that purpose. At $4.50, this suitcase, while horrible for travel, is perfect for keeping linens and blankets.
The suitcase interior was clean and it was cheaper than the clear Rubbermaid containers.
I throw in a cedar block for good measure.
One of my keeper items in this case was a large knitted pink cape (not pictured) that I couldn't bear to part with. This 1969 pattern highlights a cape similar to the one I packed away.
