This is a small wall-mounted vanity case made from a small overnight make-up case. I love the map on the inside of the lid and the lights. I think this would be perfect for keeping a souvenir collection in. A wall covered in maps, with several wall-mounted pieces of luggage with lights and souvenirs artfully arranged…I think it would be very cool.
