It was 50% off anything with a blue sticker day at the local Goodwill.
This vintage trunk had a blue sticker, which made it so cheap that I knew if I got it home and didn’t love it,
I would have no trouble reselling it for more than I paid for it.
So I brought her home, cleaned her all up and brought her inside for her trial run as a coffee table.
She’s adorned with stickers from Stephen’s College, a woman’s college in Missouri.
I love the old stickers.
I wonder about the girl who packed this trunk full of her belongings and went off to school.
The lock on the front is broken, but it is inside the trunk, so I’m hoping it can be soldered back on.
Also inside the trunk were some newspaper pages from 1945, and a hand written recipe.
I’ve always hoped to find the perfect wooden blanket chest or storage chest to use as a coffee table,
or maybe even a unique old bench.
In the meanwhile, what do you think of the old gal?
Hoping you all have a Happy Friday and a Great Weekend!
