Vintage Suitcase Mini Bar

If you know me, you know I love a vintage suitcase! A while back we were hosting some friends for drinks and hors d'oeuvres before dinner. I thought it would be cute to set up one of my vintage suitcases as a pop-up mini bar in the middle of the table and place all the food around it. 

It was a really fun set-up and super easy to do, so I thought I'd share the idea with you guys! Be sure to check my shop often. I usually have one of these old suitcases in stock. Feel free to message me anytime if  you are interested in having one for yourself. -Nicole Mendez, Curator

Hello Nicole!

Couple of questions…do you have any suitcases for sale now..? I have lots of depression glass in many colors and wondered if interested in buying..? Additionally, I just moved into a vintage industrial loft with 20’ ceilings, exposed beams and a stories cool wood floor. Do you ever come across items that can work in that setting..?

Thanks!

This upcycled industrial metal cart sold recently but I wanted to share the project with you anyway. I’m not actually sure you can consider this an upcycle project since I didn’t do much to it, other than clean it up. That said, I think I found a fun way to reuse this vintage cart and I hope it inspires you to look for the potential in old discarded items.
