Shopping for Antiques

My husband and I love shopping in antiques shops.

Lately, I had been looking for an old drawer/basket/suitcase to hold my cards at the next craft fair I am getting ready for.  There was no shortage of containers, but they were all too small, too big, too round, or too expensive.  Just when I had given up at our third stop of the week, I decided to take one last look around.  Hiding behind a shelf was this fantastic case, for only $10!

The lining is ugly, but the potential is great.

I’ve torn out the stained maroon satin, and will reline the inside with paper.

It will be perfect.
