Today I was given an old safe by a customer who just wanted to know what was inside it. So I picked the safe open and all was revealed..........It was empty! I have opened many old and mysterious safes for many excited customers who expect to uncover a fortune but it's always the same story. However, I once opened a huge safe in an old pub which contained a single 5 pence piece.
I usually just make keys for these old safes and sell them on, I think I'll keep this particular safe for my shop ;)
