Vintage Samsonite, vintage toilettries, Ayds etc..

Hello all--I've been lagging on the updates, but I'm working hard cataloging all the items for my shop! It's going really well, but it's a ton of work. However today i won't delve into that too much--today I'm going to share with you the contents of a woman's Samsonite--not all of them, I gave a lot of the good vintage bottles to my mother-in-law who collects these things, but I still have some interesting contents in this Samsonite.
There she is--a Silhouette Style 1412 by Samsonite. Still in fabulous condition too!!


The top try holds various items including Kleenex, toothpaste, packets of mouth wash, vaseline and bandaids, a comb, scissors and pencil, tweezers---and under a smaller square tray(center back) holds curlers and a ton of bobby pins and clips.

beneath the tray holds so much more( and smells a little of chemicals--I blame the bottles of mystery substance)

This woman loved leaving herself notes so not to forget--on the left bottom corner of the mirror she attached a type written sticker for directions to "attach straight switch" --I don't know what that means, but it's still super interesting.

Travel bottles full of mystery substance--If I had to guess I would say tanning oil and lotion maybe? Anyone want to take a guess-- =)

White Frost's Pocket-Pak spot chief


mending kit
Woolite mild soap

Above is spot remover, woolite and a small portable mending kit--essentials to stay presentable of the go!!

COTY New York Sample fragrence kit X2
Sip'n Rinse gargle mouthwash packets
Every woman needs to smell good--easy carry sample fragrance packets and travel mouthwash packets too. Samsonite also included a bottle of scope, but I don't have it any more.

Vaseline and Band aids for the accidents that happen

two makeup pads labeled brown and white. Both are powered eyeshadow with brushes
Vaseline and band aids because somethings accidents happen. Eye shadows for the necessary touch ups. I have some old vintage lipsticks too--but they were not in the Samsonite. Also--used to include a couple different bottles of nail mending glue, but those were given away.

I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST~~Can anyone guess what these little candies are?? I know they look gross, but after reading about them apparently they were pretty good.
Ayds Diet Suppressant candies--they were taken off the shelf in 1988 due to the name/slogans being associated the the disease.

I hope you enjoyed by tour through a vintage Samsonite--Happy Sunday!!
