So, the trunk that was locked during our move in 2001 is open in 2011! I googled trunk keys and found an antique trunk place that sold keys. For $25 they sent a key for our lock. At first we couldn't open it. We could feel a little give, so Matt used WD40 and kept at it. After about ten minutes the lock opened.
I put my yarn and knitting supplies in it and there was room left over for my beading boxes!
