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.

Don’t use vintage suitcases for your travel needs.

Especially if you have to take the bus.

They are very heavy.

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.

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).

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!
