Nutrimetics calling

I found this cute beauty case a while ago in my favourite op shop. It's from Nutri-Metics and must be fairly old as the modern brand is no longer spelled with a hyphen. It has snap buttons on the inside so the whole case unfolds to reveal a mirror and little plastic pockets to hold products.

This case is a more recent find and is larger than the beauty case. I imagine a Nutrimetics lady would have used this to cart around her products door to door. It's currently sitting empty on my shelf as I'm kind of stumped as to what to store in it. What would you use it for? Some of you are probably thinking this has turned into another of my 'collections' BUT (!) my rule is that two's company and three's a collection. Although if I sit them together on my shelf I'm sure one day they will undoubtedly spawn and become a collection...


  1. Hi there, followed a few vintage blog links and found myself here-- I like your blog name, it's like the international version of mine (my blog is http://thriftaholic.net). I'll be adding a link to you soon and look forward to your posts!

  2. I'm so jealous of everyone finding awesome vintage things but me. Just because there are seriously no vintage stores where I live. Or all the good stuff is in a couple of stores but up-priced by heaps so you're basically paying retail prices. argh! love your blog


  3. Hi there,
    I have recently happened upon a bag the same as the orange one in your picture. Do you have a sense of whether they are worth anything?


    1. Hi KF, unfortunately I can't shed much light on that. You could have a search on ebay or etsy perhaps and see if anyone is selling anything similar? I guess the thing is that it's only worth how much someone is willing to pay :) Sorry I couldn't be more help!
