Thursday Threads: Come Fly With Me

I've always loved great vintage (or vintage inspired) pieces. This Thursday I bring you the latest two things I am coveting. These Pan Am bags are amazing...they are perfect for work or a weekend get away. The top canvas one is REVERSIBLE! ...the blue one is sturdy and bound to stand the test of time.

Both logos were used by Pan American Airways and with the new Pan Am show set to debut on ABC this Sunday, I think that I will not be the only one wanting these beauties. From what I have seen what the ladies on the show will be carrying is the blue Pan Am bag with the logo used from the late 50's through the last days of the airline.

The saddest cruelest thing is that both of these bags sit just 30 feet away from me at the HistoryMiami gift shop! This gem of a museum (if I do say so myself) has an incredible aviation exhibition open currently called Aviation in Miami: the First 100 Years. This means that not only does the gift shop have these bags, but they have all sorts of other Pan Am (and Eastern)treasures such as, koozies, shirts, glasses, wings, name badges and so much more!

So if you want to be a jet set trend setter, either come on down to HistoryMiami or visit the store on the web and snatch up one of these beauties before I do!


  1. I love these bags! They're awesome! :)

  2. I have ALWAYS wanted one of these. Chris's grandfather used to work for Pan Am. Totally coveting. On a different note: I was totally talking about your Thursday Threads at Happy Hour tonight. Love it!

  3. Wow, I didn't know these were available at the museum! I'm so there!!!Great post!

  4. Sadly my white one sold this morning...but the blue is still available! YAY!
