How much are some of the old LV steamer trunks worth you ask? Enough to make it worth emptying out Mildred’s false teeth and old bloomers that they could contain. While it’s not a secret that Louis Vuitton luggage and handbags are red-hot items, there are still many old trunks stored in attics and basements that bear the famous logo. A good find can net you enough for a down payment on a car! For motivation to get you up in that hot attic, check out the slideshow to see what these time travelers are worth! All prices shown are actual, accurate prices realized, not asking prices. A big thanks to http://www.worthpoint.com for use of the pictures and information.

Before the end of the race, the fog lessened and visibility returned. Luna Rossa finished 3 minutes 18 seconds behind Emirates Team New Zealand, giving the Kiwis the seven wins necessary to advance to the Americas Cup Finals in September against Oracle Team USA. Following the victory, a public ceremony recognized the Italian team for its participation before Emirates Team New Zealand received the Louis Vuitton Cup. Im very proud of the way the guys are sailing the boat, Emirates skipper Dean Barker said. Ray Davies, the tactician for the Kiwis, said the team will be resting before the finals in September. The boats [will be] going back in the shed for quite a few more mods [modifications], Davies said. During that period, well have some time off and we get three days off; pretty much just kicking back. Weve put a ban on ourselves on long distance travel. None of the boys are allowed to go to Vegas. Managing Director Grant Dalton echoed the same, serious sentiment about preparing for the next races. The only reason were in San Francisco is to take the cup away, as nice of a city as it is, Dalton said.
Its not one craftsman making the whole thing. But we try to take the best talents to make the jewelry. Somebody will cut the diamond. Somebody will set the diamond. Somebody will work the metal. Somebody will polish it. Somebody will shine it. Each time it is our challenge to get the best stone setter, the best polisher, make a team and make them work on a piece together. We are very lucky in Paris for historic reasons we have the best craftsmen in the world whose skills have been passed from one generation to another.

Emirates team wins Louis Vuitton Cup
After swearing at the crowd at a Louis Vuitton event for speaking during her set, the singer walked out, reports Womens Wear Daily. Apple grew more agitated with the crowd at the event, who would not stop talking, as the night wore on. She tried several times to get the audience to be quiet: she hit a metal ball, swore several times both quietly and loudly, and told them they were rude. Eventually, Apple said, Predictable! Predictable fashion, what the fk? and walked out of the venue. Those were not the only Apple antics last night: The singer also stood on her piano, performed a back-bend on the bench, and hit herself in the head with her microphone. The event, held at the Tokyo Station Hotel, was part of Vuittons Timeless Muses exhibit honouring model Kate Moss, filmmaker Sofia Coppola, architect Charlotte Perriand, French actress Catherine Deneuve, author Francoise Sagan, and 19th century empress consort Eugenie de Montijo. The exhibit will run for three weeks, starting Saturday August 31, and will feature videos and items representative of each muse.
What Goes Into The Making Of Louis Vuitton Jewelry
With almost two weeks till the start of that best of 17 series, Team New Zealand’s slick catamaran is heading into the yard for further modifications over the next few days. That will give the sailing crew a welcome break though the orders are to take it easy. “We’ll be kicking back. We’ve put a ban on ourselves for long distance travel … none of the boys are allowed to go to Vegas. We’re really keeping it simple over the next few days,” Team New Zealand tactician Ray Davies said. “Then we’ll get back into a buildup towards the cup again. “We’ll have a party tonight and Deano will make a ‘Dean Barker’ of himself no doubt, and then we’ll just be into a mellow few days off.” Barker said today’s 3min 20sec victory over Luna Rossa was one of the more difficult because of the light winds and the fog.
