how many hang bags is too many?

i walked into a store couple weeks ago
and saw this amazing looking
antique swiss soldier mail bag
that i really can't resist..

according to the store owner
it's made in the 30s
it's so old!
there are scratches all over the bag
and even smell a little moldy

but i love it
it has so much character and soul

on the strap
i can still see
his hand carved name, his initials
and number 75 with a swiss cross on the bottom

im smitten!
