This was just like opening a giant Christmas present last night. So I have this GIANT old trunk that I've had for a long time...but never had the key for it. I always told the kids not to lock it (which only involved pushing hard enough on the latch for it to "click" in and lock). Well, inevitably, one day my oldest did just that...and it had been locked ever since (5 or 6 years ago) up until last night. :) We drove it down to the local locksmith and for $21.75, he made a key for it. We brought it home, opened it up, and weeeeeeeeee!! Lots of yarn and patterns, materials, crafting supplies, etc...stuff I forgot I had and now I can use again!
By the way, this is a "Neverbreak Trunks, U.S.A." trunk. Old old old...and very sturdy. The inner shelf lifts out with handles so you can access the lower portion of the trunk. If you ever happen across one, I recommend them for storage! Make sure yours has a key ;)
