• Reserve the New Traveling Trunk

    • Please fill out the online form below. We will do our best to accommodate as many facilities as possible.
    • In order to do this, no facility may have the trunk for more than three consecutive days. Before filling this form out, please check the calendar below to see when the trunk is already booked.  Also, please understand that there must be enough time in between bookings for the trunk to be transported.
    • This year’s trunk will be available for booking through September 30th. After that it will be added to our collection and the public will be able to place standard holds on the trunk. Previous years’ trunks are available by placing a standard hold in our catalog.
    • When we receive your request, we will respond letting you know if the trunk is available to you on the dates you requested.
