Where can I buy a cheap, giant suitcase on the internet?

A few friends of mine have bought cheap, giant suitcases from novelty shops and souvenir shops in NYC. Since I'm halfway across the country, I'm looking for something similar that I can buy on the internet. Workable dimensions are around 32 x 25 x 10 inches - really freakin' big. But, amazon and ebay and the like are failing me. Can you help?

What do we think about Extensis Suitcase in this day and time?

Network admin hat on; not a graphic artist but providing tech support to them. Our guys run Suitcase alongside their ACS software to manage fonts. Last Suitcase thread on the blue was from 2005, which may answer my question but - is it still a necessary or at least valuable thing in a Windows 7 environment with reasonably high-end workstations (I know, they're not Macs, tsk tsk), or is it no longer an asset because computers have more resources now to keep up with 2,000+ fonts...?

Beer Suitcase Best Practices

Other than the 50 lb weight limit for checked luggage, what should I consider when attempting to take back as many exotic midwestern delights (aka 12 oz bottles or pint cans of beer) as possible to the west coast? It would go in a roller suitcase with my clothes as padding.

Please solve my complicated luggage situation!

I need luggage for three situations and I'm hoping I can wind up with just two items (and not spend too much money). I need a rolling case for my MacBook Pro and books for school, a piece of carry-on luggage for an upcoming trip, and a sturdy but not too heavy suitcase. [more inside]

Is this stuff in my suitcase toxic?

A sheet of plastic on the inside of an old suitcase I'm using has crumbled into this brittle mess, which I've been scooping out of with my hands. It smells like warm plastic or crayons, but really strong Any idea what has happened, and should I have been wearing gloves?

What kind of luggage to take inter-railing in Europe

In October we're going travelling around western Europe by train for several weeks and I need to buy some kind of luggage. I had thought that a ~35-45 litre backpack would be about right, sizewise and for portability. But I've heard from people with direct experience that pickpockets are a big problem in several of the places we're going and that makes backpacks a bad idea. So what kind of luggage should I use that will be reasonable to carry around but still secure given we're changing locations (and thus hotels) regularly. [more inside]

Need big, light bags/suitcases

Big, light luggage or alternative? I'll probably move overseas, want to take the max weight in my (checked) bags, hope to have as little weight as possible glommed up by the bags themselves. I'm okay with something not likely to last a long time and cheap is good, though at the risk of stating the obvious, don't want something real vulnerable to tearing on the flight(s) over there. Thanks for any suggestions you can share.

How do you paint leather?

I'm turning a small vintage samsonite leather suitcase into a baby travel kit that will stay in my sister's truck. I know how to get the lingering smells out, and how to replace the liner. I also figured out how to clean leather. But what type of paint is best to use on leather? I want to add some decorative elements with a baby theme to the outside and I'm not sure if acrylics are okay.
