Wives grandmother died a few weeks ago. Her kids have picked through what they wanted of her belongings and the grandchildren got to pick out an item. My wife remembers playing with this chest when she was around 5 years old. She was told it was one of the chests that came over from Ireland with her grandmothers grandparents. Any chest people out there?

Her grandmother's grandparents.
That chest must be well over 100 years old.

I've tried to sell cool old chests like that.
They're cool and old but hard sell

That is neat!


Painting strips on a cow doesn't make it a zebra no more than a man wearing a dress makes him a woman.

As said, if it's that old, and in that condition, I'd be minding it.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

My girlfriend has an old chest. She is 68.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!
