Treasure?

In our basement we have a really old armoire that we acquired from my husbands grandparents. We put it to good use in our first house, as we didn't have a closet in our bedroom. Once we moved into our current home, I wasn't able to part with it. It has too much potential.
Some day, I'm doing to strip it down and refinish it. Someday.
But for now, it waits.
We use the shelves to hold various boxes of books and trinkets but have never used the bottom drawer. It has been preserved. It is exactly the way we found it. Like buried treasure....
Treasures like: a broom, two lantern wicks, an old mason jar, three american flags, an empty salt shaker, 2 rolls of toilet paper, a bottle of coffee grounds and what's that?.....
...a bedpan.
Yes. That's a male urinal.
And so I close the drawer and leave the contents untouched. Literally.

Oh how I'd love to get my hands on that! The armoire...not the urinal. May I ask why in the world you have that anyway?!

We didn't empty out the drawer when we got the armiore and when we got it home and looked inside, well...we sort of just shut the drawer and left it alone. For 15 years.
