12. The perfect hiding place
"Looking at the front, it looks like it has three obvious drawers with a base molding," explained Emil Knodell. "But the bottom has a secret drawer that opens." If you think about it, this is the perfect hiding place. Close by, but you would never think to look there.
And of course, other people never thought to look there. Anyone who came before Emil would probably be jealous of what he would soon find, since many of the secrets in the hidden drawer were priceless antiques. They were just about to open the drawer to reveal their long-forgotten treasures, which even the seller's own son had not known.
