After Picking Up The Cool Lounge Chair Sunday I Tooled Over To The Goodwill In West County And Found This Halliburtan Aluminum Case And Vintage Decorative Grapes! Status: Strange Smalls.
I don't know...is this metal suitcase an antique mall item? Surely the grapes are but what do you think...an aluminum case? Well, it is a Halliburton! 'Memba them?
I so want to keep them, but I just Know that there's a retro joint out there that is incomplete without
'em. I don't need these decorative vintage grapes that bad, so I'll drop 'em off in the booth soon.
These suckers are kinda hard to find too. You certainly don't see them at the thrift stores very often.
I'm kinda smitten with them. Might start looking a little harder for them.
Wasn't there a country song about a driver who was killed in a car crash by a metal suitcase such as
this? Or maybe it was a country singer who really was killed in such a way, I can't recall. In any
case (get it...case) this sports an undeniable sense of ironic cool. I'd love to have a couple pieces of
this to actually use as luggage! But alas, just one piece isn't enough for me to keep. It's getting
tagged and sent to The Green Shag Market!
