I recently helped my mom move her hope chest from the basement. She still has her wedding dress in it. some linens, pictures etc. She even still remembers the store where her dad bought it. It’s still a nice cedar chest. I was surprised at how much it still meant to her.
I see they still sell them.
Did you get one as a teenager? Did you get linens, towels, and other household stuff for it? How did you use your hope chest?
I guess in modern times single women still need household items for their first apartment. Even if the husband comes years later.
Are hope chests still a big part of teen girls lives? How about people in other countries. Do you still have Glory Boxes, Dowry Chests or whatever they are called?
