Ask and you shall receive...


Let me start this post by saying this is usually not the case. I have been asking to find a Eames LCW in an alley for years. It still has not happened. But about a week or so ago, I did a short blog post about The pieces of Hartmann luggage I had found. I've been searching high and low to find another suitcase smaller than the one I had found, to stack together to create some attractive storage. This search only lead me to pieces that were still out of my price range. So, fast forward to yesterday, and there at a local thrift store I found the pieces I had been asking to run into. Ask and you shall receive.(sometimes)

  1. Those looks really great, Hannah. I'm glad that you finally found your matching set! They look to be in great condition as well, which is pretty surprising for luggage.

    1. Thanks Nick! It seems this luggage is built to last. The frame is made of basswood and the tweed seems to be stain-resistant and leather just gets better with age!

    1. Awesome! It's amazing to me how many of these pieces are out there considering how much they cost new! And reading up on the history of Hartmann luggage they have always been top of the line pieces! If you can't figure out what to do with your new suitcase you can always send it my way, but they are great for storage, even if it's just storing off season clothes at the top of your closet. Store in style!
