A vintage suitcase made into a jewelry holder….

Last month at the flea market, I had the vintage suitcase I use to take jewelry to boutiques as  a part of my display. It got so much attention, I wanted to share it with you here.
And class starts Monday for the Santos Doll e-course!
I took these with my iPad at the show and the lighting isn’t the best.
My display came out of the fact that
I needed something to be able to move the necklaces around with out having to untangle a massive mess of chain every time I got somewhere.
 I ended up taking a vintage suitcase, turning it on it’s side and adding knobs at what would be the top part.
 They are actually screwed into a vintage belt so you don’t see any screws from the back.
 It makes it nice to hang long chains.
 The back was a bit damaged so I covered it in scrapbook paper.
 And the little paper pocket holds my business cards.
 It makes it nice for display and practical use!
I’ll be back at the flea next weekend. I can’t believe it’s here already, and My class starts Monday. The 27th is here already! There is still time to register if you like to play with clay!

    Can’t believe I haven’t done this already. All of my necklaces are long so this will come in really handy. I’m beginning to tackle doing some shows and am in the planning stages for my “booth.” This is a must! Love how you used the belt. Thanks for sharing.

    Great idea! I have my jewelry in an old wall ironing board insert like the houses in the early days had. I love it.

    I love this! I have used a smaller old suitcase for some of my jewelry but I’ve had it open the normal way & used a small tension rod across the upper part to hang jewelry. I love the belt idea though, my display might change before my first ever bazaar next month.
