Would you buy it Wednesday......:)

Here's my latest offering for "Would you buy it Wednesday" over on junkernewbie
Well, I did buy it and here's the story.....I was in St. Vinnies and noticed this very long suitcase and it had some blown glass grapes inside it. I asked if the suitcase was for sale and was told no, it's just for display right now. I have to tell you how odd I find it that our St. Vinnies here do this, put merchandise out just for display only, and if a customer expresses interest, well "no, it's just for display". Do they not understand that I want to pay with real money for their goods? Oh well, at least she let me leave my name and phone # in case they changed their minds and decided to sell it. So fast forward about 1 month and I was in that same store, over in the outdoor area and there she was...$12.99! I wasn't exactly positive I wanted it now, but decided to take it...plus it was on sale so I paid about 9.00.

Obviously at one time this housed some sort of photography equipment, probably a roll down screen? This box is 39" long! I like the tweed type covering on it and took out the ugly brown suede that was covering the inside because I want to line it with either vintage wallpaper or sheet music.

It will actually be a great storage box that will be able to hold a ton of stuff when I'm finished with it....what say you? Would you have a use for this odd item in your home?
