fab finds and my new hobby !!

I went to my first auction last week and am now hooked .
What a wonderful  experience, only downer was that funds weren't as abundant as i would have liked, but maybe thats a good thing or i would have  bought half  lots in the saleroom!!! I settled for this little beauty,  a gorgeous vintage steamer trunk , not sure whether to leave it alone or alter it in some way.
I love the leather handles and the chunky metal lock , might refurb the inside somehow but not sure with what , might just sit and look at it for inspiration !
Oh and forgot to mention that i also bought another vintage suitcase and a box of odds and ends that turned out to have some stunning crystal pieces and a few other bits that i am gonna try and sell on and get some  funds for the next one, where i have my eye on a particularly gogeous vintage blanket box and  a cutesy  vintage oak sewing box  which the auctioneer told me that because they didnt sell this week will go back into the auction next week,.... have reserved my spot already!!!
