Trunk

What is the most awful thing about traveling? Arriving at your destination with your clothes smashed together, all wrinkled and shirts that look stuffy. Back in the days the suitcases where hefty, but man you could survive a hurricane without one mark of infamy.
A couple of weeks ago we ran into this lovely cabin trunk. We had to drive 100 miles to get it. When we arrived at the seller's house, we instantly felt a sense of bitterness in his voice. He told me it was a family piece, used by generations. I asked him why he would even consider selling it and the only thing he answered, was that I had to promise to give the case a nice spot in my store. And so we did. Although we suspect his wife to have forced him - we think he did not want to sell at all - , we kept our promise and use the trunk for a special pieces with great joy. And hopefully it will stay in its new family for generations. Marine coat by Momotaro.
