I found this Samsonite train case and I have big plans for it.
I'm gonna pinstripe this one and about 5 other train cases and random boxes and then sell them at the Mopar Spring Fling car show and also the Johnny Cash Music Festival. The money from sellin' em is gonna to to fixing up my '63 Dart station wagon. Woo Woo!

It was 1/2 off $4.99 and still has the name & address of the former owner!
Now check out what's inside!
Rippled Glass with frosted designs. Is it an ash tray? Candy dish? Who knows but it was 1/2 off $1.99!
Super cute froggy soap dish/toothbrush holder. This guy makes me smile! I'm pretty sure he's meant to be my friend Jaymee's B-day gift.....shhhh! Don't tell! and don't tell it was only 1/2 off $2.99!
And here's the best score! It was 1/2 off $1.99 This ceramic ashtray is awesome and unusual.

Has anyone seen this label or technique before? I'm at a loss!
So that's it! I spent very little and intend to sell all of these things so it was just a harmless little
