transversion retro funny airplane travel bags

When I was 16, I bought this hilarious tote bag by Transversion from the mall. It was kind a splurge but I'm 27 and still carrying it all the time so well worth the splurge, I think!

Two weeks ago, Pj, Rhys and I popped into an estate sale down the street and I was lucky enough to find two more of these adorable bags! I assume that the woman who owned the estate worked for an airline due to a scattering of TWA pins, notebooks and such. Either that or she just liked to travel.

Sitting on the floor by my desk at school, I often caught my classmates hanging their heads, trying to read the funny little notes and figure out what the heck was on my bag.

    1. I've never heard of elcoplanet before. I started this blog through blogger for free 3 1/2 years ago starting with a .blogspot.com address but recently went through GoDaddy.com for my own.com. I think it was somewhere in the range of $10-$15 per year for the web address but I still do all of the posting and design myself through blogger. Since blogger doesn't have a checkout for ecommerce, I use passionfruit for selling ads and storenvy for sellin my vintage clothes. I used to go with etsy but storenvy doesn't have any fees and its fully customizable and they have very limited restrictions on what you can and can't sell, unlike etsy.

  8. Dear Jean Poylini, I have heard for www.elcoplanet.com and I saw their site but my opinion is that www.eaglehost.info is best for hosting and reseller, I have been using www.bluehsot.com www.ixwebhosting.info but www.eaglehost.info provides best services and performances as for web hosting also for reseller web hosting such is Alpha Reseller and super Alpha Reseller, so if yu are looking for recommendation mine is www.eaglehost.info
