A deep, woody fragrance clings to linens, blankets, and other treasures pulled from a Lane cedar chest, reminiscent of a walk through the forest. With a flip of the lid, daughters around the country are reminded of their parents' love and support. Although families used to stuff hope chests full of household essentials in the anticipation of a daughter's impending nuptials, these days, young women receive these trunks and chests when they leave for college or move away from home. Parents still fill them with practical household items, warm blankets, and towels, but often add childhood and family mementos, pre-paid calling cards, emergency cash, and care packages helpful for life in a new apartment or college dorm room. When looking for an affordable Lane cedar chest, parents can find a vast inventory on eBay, including antique chests produced as far back as 1912 or Mid Century chests for females with a modern design aesthetic. Although your girl may not be leaving home to get married, you can still provide a treasured chest filled with 'hope' for a happy and fulfilling life.
