A Beach Cottage Coastal Vintage Trunk
Fri 4th, Dec, 2015
Helloooooo beach cottage ladies… a recent vintage find and in the Seafollly Collection in our shop.
I do love a good trunk or two, they always come with a real feel of history about them and, for me, they are very precious as most of them you come across here in Australia seem to have come with people from overseas as they started a new life Down Under…it’s not an easy move and I say that as a new citizen who came here by plane and had the benefits of internet to make the road a bit smoother….can you imagine coming here after the war as an immigrant, many did not speak the language, it’s a LONG way from anywhere and even phoning home was a whole lot harder than talking to someone on the other side of the world is on Skype nowadays…
You don’t often find them with the original travel stickers intact…this one was obviously a bit well to do and came First Class by way of the Cunard Line
Anyhoooo be seeing you
