There's something of the James Bond about this 1970s Wilson Diplomat briefcase record player.
Fancy setting yourself up as a sixties secret agent? We have just the thing to get you started, this Juliette spy briefcase with reel-to-reel recorder.
It is spy kit from 'back in the day', working via mains or battery (although the former might be a giveaway) and looking like our average briefcase from the outside. But inside is that reel-to-reel tape recorder, which works with a microphone for covert recordings.
A strange thing – and not something you'll see again in a hurry. £6.15 is the current price. Lots more images on the site.
Holding this brown leather 1960s satchel briefcase, you could almost close your eyes and be a student back in the 1960s.
An era of protest and free love, this 100% leather satchel is well-loved and steeped in history. It fits A4 sized things so it's not just cool but practical and your liberal side is crying out to own it.
Get yours for £72 at Suzie Floozie.
There's definitely a touch of the James Bond about this Sanyo G2311NK briefcase audio system.
Yes, your eyes don't deceive you – this is a complete stereo system in a briefcase, dating back to the 1980s and able to work on battery or mains. For your money, you get a record deck, cassette playback, three-band radio and detachable speakers, all of which slips together for you to carry round on your travels. Think of it as an old school iPod.
Accroding to the seller, it's in full working order, good condition and apparently cost a packet when new. Not today – on eBay it's just £14.99 right now.

Satchels appear to be the bag choice of the moment, for both men and women. That's great news for retrophiles, of course, providing a timeless accessory for a variety of vintage inspired looks.
This Florence Mini Satchel from bagmakers Ollie & Nic provides a feminine and unusual version, thanks to the smaller structure and striking colouring. The contrasting shades of imitation leather also provide sharp lines, while brass coloured metalwear is an ideal classic finish.
