    The suitcases are very cool. Makes me want to dig up some old suitcases or storage boxes, pile them up and put something lovely on top. Unfourtunately the only old stuff I could come up with is old rubbermaid storage containers and a big duffel bag with Molson Canadian printed all over it. Where is my designer when I need her?
