What's the oldest thing you own and still use?

My answer: probably some of my family's flatware. It's over fifty years old, good, solid, simple stainless steel, and still in very good condition.

That was an interesting question. Trying to think about it. Probably my set of books called the Great Books of the Western World. Google is good but if I want to survey what many different writers or thinkers have said on a topic, it works better than google. I also have a pair of socks that are stating to get threadbare after close to 50 years. No holes yet! Lol

I have a hand mixer from 1965, it is aqua blue and white. Even I’m amazed it lasted this long. I also have a wool cape from 1965 hippy days.

I use my grandmother's cedar chest. I've had it for 31 years. I still have a game that I bought in 1996 for my son at work. Both are still in perfect condition. My car is a 2006 Hyundai, not perfect but only appearance flaws.

I have a tendency to use things until they wear out.

I have a yoyo I stole from the mall of America 25-26 years ago, that has to be the oldest thing Ive personally acquired. FWIW I emailed the the store 2-3 years ago to return or pay for it as an example to my kids, no response even though their still in business.

It's one of those stacked stereo systems with the record-player on top.

A small bedside cabinet that I made in woodwork class in about 1975.

I have the family bible from the 1800’s - I can’t say that I use it though?

The oldest part of my house goes back to around 1840, I have tshirts from the seventies I still occasionally wear and a pair of jeans from around then that have just been fetched out of the suitcase storage. I have old 78 records I still listen to sometimes. Quite a bit of my furniture and ornaments around the house are from the 18 and 19 century I have garden tools and work tools that my great great grandfather and each generation since have used .. probably a lot of other old stuff around that I still use and never wonder about their age.f


I still have a jeans jacket that I wore to Woodstock in 1969...I was still fits!

I also have a rice warmer that was passed down to me from my Japanese is probably over 100 years old...It is wooden and I only use it for special family dinners...


My 45 year old chest of drawers


A USMC K-Bar knife, I bought in a military surplus store, back in 1975.

My wife


I used to have an old knife, like an American made Swiss knife from 1963 when I was a kI'd. My brother, in the army at the time gave it to me. I retired it and gave it to my one son.

Fun to think about, bleu! I bought a jacket in 1980, for my first trip out of North America and have used it every time since! It even went to Borneo! I have a cast iron skillet which my grandmother owned. It's GOT to be over a hundred years old...still well-seasoned and still non-stick!

Looking forward to seeing some other responses.
