What are the oldest but still very useful items in your home?

[ Edited ]
10 replies 91 views Edited Apr 5, 2014

Some of us may have a lot of old stuff lying around the house that we hardly ever use or perhaps may be given away soon, sold in a yard sale or tossed to the trash but sometimes old stuff  remains relevant and very useful for a long time and even for generations. 

 

What do you have in your home that is used on a regular basis and that is really old?

 

Example 1: I have a pantry that my father built for me when I was 6 years old (nearly three decades ago), I have it in my apartment and still use it daily for storage and easy access of stuff.  

 

Example 2: I have a table lamp in my livingroom is at least 60 years old, works fine and I use it almost every evening.

An older dictionary, comes in handy when looking up something I don't know the meaning of word wise.

 

Some older kitchen utensils, like knives. They were just made better imo. For cutting up food.

My dad has an old rotary phone from the1960's on a wall, he uses it daily and it's the only phone that will still work during power outages since there no cellphone reception at his place and his cordless phone won't work during power outages. That old phone has greatest clarity and is loud.

This shirt is  nearly10 years old and once was a long sleeved shirt but I made it into a tank top by cutting off the sleeves because they were all stained and ripped in places.  I like to just wear it for regular outdoor activities like cycling and running and it's comfy and cool.

I loved my old launch 60GB PS3 but it died shortly after I bought a PS4 and replaced it with a newer 'Super-slim' model but it just isn't as great as the older one. I miss my old PS3
