Fabulous & Frugal Fun: Street Inspiration

Since I leave tomorrow on a trip to Europe, I'm especially attracted to anything that makes me think of the glamorous day of travel, such as this 1954 ad for Lady Baltimore luggage.

No, we won't be sailing the high seas on this voyage to arrive half-way around the world. Instead, we're heading over to Rome and then Croatia on a Lufthansa Airbus, which always has me much and how to pack.

Now if it were the good old days of travel when we weren't packed like sardines into a plane, I might have picked up this Lady Baltimore suitcase for sale on the street in the East Village for $5. Heck, for $1 more, I could have taken the whole library of books for a little reading material in-flight.

The Elegant Thrifter

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!


  1. Have a lovely trip and I hope you find lots of Treasures on your adventure.

    Bon Voyage!
