The annual Chicago Air and Water Show dominated the city’s lakefront this weekend. While I didn’t have time to go out and enjoy it, I did find myself stuck in traffic and got a quick peek and the show.
My brother-in-law did go down to the Air and Water Show and on his way back, found Flight 001, the funky travel accessories store, on North State Street.
When I took a mini-break to New York a few months ago, I perused Flight 001’s offerings in their Boerum Hill shop.
Although Flight 001 doesn’t sell retro airline bags like this one from Pan Am, it displays a nice sampling of bags from airlines past as part of the store’s decor.
But it does sell a cool passport cover displaying a 500,000 Vietnamese Dong note, complete with a smiling portrait of Uncle Ho. I also found toiletry bags and passport holders with Cyrillic and Chinese writing.
I love retro travel!
