  2. Let’s begin withunpacking the collection

  3. I started with all kinds of vintage bags & cases. • 5 suitcases (various makes) • 1 bowling bag (circa 1932) • 4 hat boxes (fabric and vinyl) • 3 wig boxes (wood, fabric and vinyl) • 2 carpet bags (clutch style) • 1 knitting box (slightly dented) Eventually, the collection became more focused. • 15 Samsonite Streamlites (early 50s) • 5 Train Cases • 3 Personal O’Nites • 1 Ladies Wardrobe • 1 Hand Wardrobe • 3 Hat Boxes • 2 O’Nites

  4. I bought my first suitcase thinking how cool I would look on vacation My boyfriend even had a convertible. Finally the big day came: we were off to Victoria! The car broke down. We went by bus instead.

  5. Packing Tip: Don’t use vintage suitcases for your travel needs. Especially if you have to take the bus. They are very heavy.

  6. For your heavy metal CD’s from high school! For your half-completed knitting projects! For your Christmas battery-operated plastic bonsai tree! Use for handy storage!

  7. Use for creative inspiration! This is the first in a seriescalled “Sexy Samsonite.”

  8. Great in emergencies! I have a suitcase packed with important photos, mementos, and archaeological finds. One very important item can’t be packed into a suitcase: Emmakat!

  9. Featured as clever plot devices! Aunt Em comes to visit Helma Zukas, Librarian at Bellehaven Public Library. She brings with her a suitcase filled with memories... …and a reason for murder? “Final Notice” by Jo Dereske

  10. Many of the images from this site came from Samsonite products circa the early 1950s. In addition to cases, I collect advertisements and promotional products. For more suitcase info (click!): Mystery books of all kinds (not just with suitcases in them) can be found at the Vancouver Public Library (where I work as a Library Technician).

  11. You can learn a lot about someone through their collecting activities. Of course, you can learn a lot by going through their bags. I am currently studying to become a librarian, just like Helma Zukas. I am also writing a murder mystery story featuring a librarian as the main character, just like Jo Dereske. Stay tuned for an “Ask Nettie Day” installment!
