“Just opened it and it’s a beautiful, elegant, and completely functional antique. You do beautiful work, Connie. I’m so impressed by how sturdy it is; amazing it is over 100 years old! They sure knew how to make ’em back then. I’m going to have to start budgeting for trunks. One is not going to be enough. Thanks again!” (Kay, MD)

“I had been looking high and low for a trunk for our home. When I stumbled across Connie’s trunks they were beautiful. I had looked on and off for about a month, then one day I went on her website and found my trunk!!! It is so beautiful in our home and I will continue to look at her website. May buy another in the future. Very beautiful work. Would recommend Connie’s trunks to anyone. Thank you Connie!!!” (Penny)

“It was so nice to meet you and see your passion for your trunks. My husband and I took a day trip with the intention of buying ONE trunk and came home with TWO. I had my eye on a third trunk also. These trunks are beautiful and you do a great job of bringing them back to life. My husband surprised me and bought that third trunk for me for Christmas. It arrived safely and well packaged. Our adult children have already claimed them and so glad they will be passed on.” (Fran, NH)

“The trunk is BEAUTIFUL! Well worth every penny I spent. Looking forward to many years of using it and displaying it. Thank you for the extremely prompt shipping. I am also interested in another trunk, for my wife, so I will keep my eye on your site. Thanks again.” (HB)

“The trunks arrived yesterday and look outstanding! They are every bit as nice as you had described. The packing and shipping was also excellent. Thank you again and have a merry Christmas.” (Ken, Washington)

“We presented this trunk to our daughter and son-in-law as a surprise house warming gift. They just purchased their home this winter and bought a beautiful four poster bed for their bedroom. Our daughter had expressed interest in finding a trunk for the foot of the bed. Needless to say…they were pleased beyond pleased!!! The trunk color blends beautifully with the wood tone of their bed…and they love the fact that it is a real antique! …Many thanks and May God Bless.” (T & M, Ohio)

“I received the trunk and absolutely love it! It looks gorgeous in our bedroom. You have done an amazing job restoring it. I would happily recommend Connie’s Trunks to anyone looking for a unique piece for their home.” (VR, New York)

“We absolutely loved the trunk we purchased for our son and daughter-in-law! I wished you could have seen their faces when they opened their gift. …It arrived in perfect condition. …My son was awestruck and my daughter-in-law immediately began to cry. …Once they read about the trunk’s history that you included, they couldn’t stop looking at all the beautiful details and commented how amazing the condition was. Difficult to believe that it survived from the 1800s. It was beautifully restored and they loved the color! It is definitely an heirloom that they will treasure and their children to come. …Connie we will definitely refer you to others and purchase a trunk for ourselves next time! We appreciate all that you did to help make our kids’ Christmas a very special one this year!” (Shane and Dawn, Ohio)

“My husband and I ordered this trunk for our daughter’s college graduation present. She was wanting a ‘treasure chest’ to store all of her special mementos and I knew this was the perfect one! It arrived today and is gorgeous! She is thrilled with the trunk and was especially pleased with the rich color of the wood and the beautiful restoration of the hardware! Thank you for your time and great customer service. I know she will always ‘treasure’ this lovely piece of furniture and true work of art!” (Lisa, North Carolina)

“The trunk arrived today. It’s in great condition, exactly the color and style we wanted. You did marvelous work on it. We’ll be taking it to our cabin this weekend for its new ‘life.’ We’ll send a picture once we get it in place. Thanks again.” (Clint & Brenda, Ohio)

“My trunk did arrive yesterday and I’m as pleased with it as I was with the other two lol! It’s a beautiful piece and I’m thrilled to add it to my collection! Thanks again!” (Michael, Ohio)

“The trunk just arrived and it is gorgeous. I just unpacked it. You did such a good job on the packing and it looks like it went through the trip from the east coast to the west coast just fine. I must say, I actually cried a bit because I have been expecting it and looking forward to it, and now it is here. I love old things and have a lot of my grandmother’s pictures, so I know what sort of history this trunk must have (just age-wise if nothing else). Thank you . . . A job well done on your part and I will take good care of it. I love the key too, and the letter inside. I am just going to look at it for a while and enjoy the detail. I feel like it has come home, where it belongs. Thanks again.” (Brenda)

“The trunks arrived in perfect condition. My husband was so excited! We have looked for years to find trunks like this. They are wonderful and you can hardly tell the difference in the two. I’m sure when the twins get older they will love them as much as we do! Thanks again for everything. Our Christmas is complete! And, from one small town to another, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!” (Crystal & Terry)

“Connie, I wanted you to know the twin trunks have arrived safely and they are amazing. The pictures I saw online do not do them justice. Whoever restored them did an incredible job. I am proud to own them and will take very good care of them. I could not be happier with my purchase. Thank you.” (Donna, New York)

“The beautiful trunks arrived this AM. Trunk 160 we purchased for our son for his birthday, and he will really be thrilled. Trunk 163 we got for ourselves, and I just love it. The wood is so smooth, and we love the metal work. …I think you did a grand job in restoring the two trunks. I also want to compliment you on your packing expertise. I know you put your heart into this and I really appreciate the job that you did.” (Cil, Kentucky)

“Connie, Ginny and I would like to thank you so much for the beautiful trunk that we received from Connie’s Trunks. It is everything we had hoped for and more. Our house is full of priceless antique furniture that we have acquired over the years. Having studied Art in college, I am very selective when it comes to adding items to our collection. I spent weeks on the Internet looking for the perfect trunk to use as a coffee table in our family room. You were definitely right when you told us that this trunk was one of your finest works. The photos did not do it justice. I also appreciate the fact that you shipped the trunk the day you received our check and were honest about providing us with the key that had been misplaced on your end. All the best, I will tell anyone that asks about the trunk where we found it!” (Tom, Missouri)

“Once again, I will say my husband and I LOVE IT!!!!! The workmanship is exceptional. I wish we had found you sooner. Thanks again.” (Linda & John)
