Remember how I admired the display of vintage fashion dolls at the doll show? This was where I met Sue King, who was running it. and we chatted for a few minutes. I especially admired the vintage looking suitcase in this display and not long after that, Sue emailed me to say that there were some in stock at the shop she works in which is in Liverpool Street, Hobart. The shop is called Chez Moi French Style and is a gift shop. I’ve seen it before but had never been there as I hadn’t realised there were any dolls in there. Naomi and I went to have a look and enjoyed browsing amongst all the pretty things, having a chat and meeting Sue’s dog Charlie.
So here is my suitcase, there were several other designs but this is the one I liked best. It’s made of tin with the design lithographed on. I packed it with a few things I recently bought from “Ellasdolls” on Etsy.
My reproduction American Girl Barbie approves of it; she is lucky that the Tressy’s have their own luggage or I am sure they would have grabbed it.
