During the jetsetting days of 1960s and in the 1970s, the first class passengers of Pan American World Airways would receive a Pan Am logo bag at check-in. These travel bags were held in high regard as only the rich and famous could afford to have the luxury of toting these iconic pieces of luggage around. Though the status of flying first class in today's modern world has changed and become more affordable, the legacy of the Pam Am Bags still live on in their own brand of luggage and accessories.

We're all pretty excited to have Pan Am bags added to our list of vendors and neat retro products that we carry in the store and on-line!
We're proud to announce some styles that we're going to carry:
Pan Am Originals: Mini Explorer Bag in blue. This bag has a double strap, heavy duty metal zipper and is a great everyday bag or handy carry-on travel bag.
These jetsetting bags are very versatile, slide the Innovator Bag around you for a scooter ride on your Vespa (or Lambretta!), or to tote around all your roller derby gear. The Mini Explorer Bag is great for makeup artist's, hair stylist's, and models to take to and from pin-up photo shoots, those retro rockabilly stylings need lots of eyeliner, hairspray and bobby pins. *Wink*
So-get ready all you groovy jetsetters, it's time to book a trip, Pan Am bags are here!
