    What do you do to make your suitcases easy to spot on the conveyers? I noticed last time that ours looked like everyone elses :mad:

    Tie brightly coloured scarves or bandanas (cheap from any market) round the handles. I have in the past jazzed my suitcases up with *artwork* done with different colours of nail varnish as I have hundreds of bottles.

    Well, when eveyone used light coloured or tapestry luggage, I bought black.

    When everyone began using black, I bought colour-blocked luggage.

    When everyone began using colour-blocked luggage, I bought red.

    When everyone began using red, I gave up and returned to black luggage! :lol:

    I have turquoise name tags on all of my bags. That helps. I used to have bright pink, but they disappeared one trip--have no idea why. The luggage made it, but the tags didn't! Apparently someone liked them! :rolleyes:

    My cousin painted roses on her luggage when she and her husband flew to California for their DD's wedding. It's striking; she's a terrific artist--which helps! One problem: the luggage didn't make the flight! :sigh; Fortunately, they did have a carry-on and the checked bag made arrived the day before the wedding.

    Beyond that, you could add strips of coloured duct or electrical tape to your cases.

    Yeah, it looks horrible. I bought a ginormous green Samsonite spinner suitcase. It's card a semi hard case and seems more durable. Plus I LOVE the spinners.

    I do have a rolling duffel bag that is black with pink spots.

    Love Alysia's shoes--and your case, PA!

    I have to use my luggage for business, so it has to be a bit conservative.

    I still have my red rolling laptop case. It's hard to miss it! :lol:

    I bought some really ugly stuff that is green tapestry and it's easy to spot at the airport because no one else would ever admit to have such ugly suitcases. I also have neon zip ties that I use for my Mickey head tags that I made from the those paint chips from the Disney paint from Home Depot that are shaped like Mickey heads.
