I think I have blankets stored in mine. If I was sure where it was I would take a picture of it. I thought I told you about a wardrobe trunk I bought at an estate sale. It was sitting there and I asked them how much. He says well we lost the key so can't get it open so $5. I said I would take it.
The first key my friend tried in it opened it. It was beautiful Royal Blue velvet inside that looked like it had never been used. That was on one side and the other side had drawers. There was a pair of black silk stockings, seamed, Not panty hose. LOL, no runs, a very small heavy 2 piece iron that I think was for collars and cuffs. and a black purse out of that ribbed fabric called file (not spelled like that) and it had the tortoise shell handle.
I thought the trunk had belonged to a dancehall girl. Just my romantic mind I guess. But, it was in such good condition. Whoever had it had taken such good care of it. I gave it to my mom and she had it standing open in her sewing room for years. When she passed away I put it upstairs in my house and never opened it. Too bad. It is gorgeous.
