I recently purchased this fabulous American Tourister Tri-Taper toiletries case from ebay. I won the auction with a fairly modest bid, but when adding the shipping cost ended up paying a bit more than I ever would for a "junk" find. Why?
Well first off, this case was in mint condition; I doubt it had ever been used.
Secondly, it had all it's pieces - with the tag and key to boot!
Thirdly, it nearly completes this fabulous set!
A long while back I found a mid-sized suitcase and matching train case at the digs. I was drawn to their masculine look and knew they would look fabulous in my son's room. I only paid a couple of dollars for each piece. I fell in love with this luggage set and decided it was worth collecting.
Slowly I found the pieces to build my collection.
Down to the details! Since a few of the cases were missing the official American Tourister tag, I purchased some through ebay.
When building a collection be patient, diligent, and pay attention to those details. That time and hard work will pay off, and you'll end up with a stunning collection you'll really LOVE!
