Three Handsome Briefcases

Well, if these vintage briefcases were men, there’s only one word to describe them – handsome. Sturdy and well put together, you just know you’ll be able to depend on them for a long time (not to mention that rough-around-the-edges charm we all love!) 🙂

Bags, bags, bags!

We’ve made full use of our new space and filled it with bags you love. Recently, we noticed our cosmetic/train cases have been used creatively as ang pow (red packet) holders at weddings. The red ones are the perfect auspicious colour for that! And I can just imagine red Double Happiness stickers on the white and green ones 🙂

Simply love old leather bags, especially this one, which looks like something a Victorian-era doctor might carry.
