Have you ever owned this style of suitcase? Do you have memories of your parents or grandparents having such? Ever find anything cool at an antique mall (and if so, what)? Let us hear from you in the comments!

    I love this! Just gave me a great idea! My dad collects (buys more and sells less) vintage suitcases. You know what the great thing about collecting these is? You can store your smaller crap inside. lol.
