Synopsis for “The Locked Drawer”
A couple buy a dresser that used to belong to a witch and the bottom drawer does not open. They are curious because of a story the furniture dealer told them about the witch keeping all of her secrets in the bottom drawer, and so they attempt to open it, without success. They call in a cabinet maker who takes the dresser back to his shop, but he calls them back and tells them unless he uses a crowbar to damage the dresser, he can’t get it open. Their curiosity has taken hold of them and they give him the ok to use the crowbar. The cabinet maker’s assistant prys the bottom drawer slightly open and the cabinet maker looks inside. What he sees so shocks him that he returns the dresser to its owners, denies seeing anything inside, and admonishes them never to attempt to open the bottom drawer again.
