What to do with a vintage doctor's bag

The only thing I brought home from the Ottawa Antique Market besides some FABULOUS modernist jewelry (pics of that on the mourning cloak) was a leather doctor's bag my husband bought me. Once we got it home I wondered what in the hell we were going to do with it. 

Then it hit me - magazine rack next to the sofa!

What a wonderful use for such a nice, old item! I love the patina on the bag, and the fact that it's monogrammed! Nice find.

Thanks Claudia!
Thanks Lucas! You missed a really fun show. I have been meaning to check out your new digs (especially since I live right down the road) - such a FAB spot!

Like that idea. Mine is my father's very well used Dr. bag and it sits high up on a bathroom shelf where only adults can reach it and holds medicines. Oh, and the name toggle has a red cross in it cut from a red paint sample. Don't you just love paint samples? Bright and sturdy little card to do loads of things with.

Loving the living room Kim - I know you mentioned the shop where you bought your sofa but do you know the brand name and/or sofa name? Thanks

unfortunately when I asked at the store who the manufacturer was they couldn't tell me. something about it coming from the warehouse and trying to sell it off during a big sale.....
