I have an older trunk which came with the house and sat in the attic for a while.
I’m looking to replace the hinges which are broke and the two leather straps on the sides. I don’t know where I can get items like that?
Thanks In Advance.

One of my favorite sources is Horton Brasses. I see that they have leather trunk handles there.

You should also be able to find what you need at Van Dykes Restorers.

Have fun.
