i think a really old suitcase is cool…why have you ruled it out?

what about an old chest?

i think the record player is really cool too.

Okay…I know that you said NO to a suitcase, but I saw this pic and thought it might change your mind.  It’s A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!! 

What do you think about hat boxes with old family photos?

Or, what if you could find an old-fashioned mailbox?  That would be neat!

I used an old jewelry box.  Which was about 8×11 in size. It was perfect and nice that it was small because we were travelling so took up less space in the car.

Oooh!!  I love the suitcase with the letters!!  I also love the idea of the hat box with a hole cut in it.  I’m actually considering that now for my own wedding!  Thanks Melisslp!  🙂

@lorge28 – SO glad that I could help!  Thank goodness for the internet and all of the cool resources, eh?!

@futuremrsg630 – Me too!!  I don’t think it’s overkill at all, especially since the train cases will be different sizes, etc.  Hope it works for you!!

I would use the record player in one of two ways:

1. remove the turntable part, take out the apparatus underneath it, replace the turntable and have people place the cards on top

                       OR

2. remove the turntable, take out the apparatus, cut off about 1/4 inch of the front edge of the turntable platform , and replace the apparatus so that cards could be dropped into the slot that is left.

This is what we used. It’s simple, but TJ Maxx etc. has lots of cute vintage-y looking containers like this. This little wooden sign was from Michaels for a buck, and I just painted it up.
