Beautiful little vintage steamer trunk

My latest find at the Nashville Flea Market…

A pretty little vintage steamer trunk. The real trick was convincing my husband that this purchase was ALLLL about the "downsizing" we've agreed to do. Ahem

The inside has a tad of water damage and signs of wear (of course), but is in really great shape, considering. I've wanted one like this for a long time. This color, too. 

And there it was…just sitting there, waiting for me this weekend at the Nashville Flea Market (that's held on the fourth weekend of every month). Have you been to it?

Couldn't resist this one. Jack was just sitting there watching.

And a close up. It's been "loved" back into better shape with some paint and wax through the years. And still has both leather handles. Now to find a special place for it in the house.

I love the bottom of the old steamer trunk, too. Wonder where all it's been… 
If only "bottoms" could talk! 

Do you love "flea marketing" too?
