A vintage suitcase made into a jewelry holder….
I have a vintage suitcase made into a jewelry holder to take to boutiques as a part of my display. It got so much attention, I wanted to share it with you here.
And you can still sign up for the Santos Doll e-course!
My display came out of the fact that
I needed something to be able to move the necklaces around with out having to untangle a massive mess of chain every time I got somewhere when I was selling and making wholesale deliveries. Sometimes I’ll bring 30 necklaces at a time and don’t have the time to untangle all of the chains.
I ended up taking a vintage suitcase, turning it on it’s side and adding knobs at what would be the top part.
They are actually screwed into a vintage belt so you don’t see any screws from the back.
It makes it nice to hang long chains. Then the vintage belt is attached to the suitcase.
The back was a bit damaged so I covered it in scrapbook paper. I love the mixing and matching of the different knobs.
And the little paper pocket holds my business cards.
It makes it nice for display and practical use! This would also be really practical at home. You could keep your jewelry in there and then stack the suitcases.
How much fun is it to hang earrings from antlers?
I also love these boho chic trays for catching little bits and pieces. They are so cute and perfect and pretty too!

That’s a wonderful idea and it is as beautiful as it is practical.
Have a happy weekend!
Can’t believe I haven’t done this already. All of my necklaces are long so this will come in really handy. I’m beginning to tackle doing some shows and am in the planning stages for my “booth.” This is a must! Love how you used the belt. Thanks for sharing.
Great idea! I have my jewelry in an old wall ironing board insert like the houses in the early days had. I love it.
This is a really cool idea. I really like the belt addition! 🙂
This is a cool idea. I especially love the addition of the belt!
How beautiful! What a creative idea.
Love the colors of the suitcase.
Have a great day.

Such a cute display piece!! 🙂 Have a lovely Memorial day! xo Holly
Genius! I love this idea. I think it would be great in lieu of a jewelry box. Much more interesting.
I love this! I have used a smaller old suitcase for some of my jewelry but I’ve had it open the normal way & used a small tension rod across the upper part to hang jewelry. I love the belt idea though, my display might change before my first ever bazaar next month.
