My Great Grandfather's Elgin Pocket watch, made in 1917. Passed down to my Grandfather, my uncle, and now me.

My mother pulled my late grandfather’s Vitamix Maxi-4000 out of storage and gave it to me. Looking forward to using this beast!

The Coleman cooler I got for high school graduation... In 1984! Has been on tons of camping and beach trips and will no doubt last me the rest of my days.

If you give a little bit of care to this GE mixer, it will run for at least 33 more years.

Folks got this back in the 80's in Germany, multiple moves and one plug change later and now it's been gifted to me and the Mrs. as we move into our new place. Still makes a perfect brew. The smell of fresh brewed coffee in the morning is pure joy.

Finally found a genuine used Irvin flying jacket with a beautiful patina that is the perfect fit: couldn't afford a new one ($1000+) and I'll be keeping this for a long, long time. So damned warm!

My dad got this belt in the army in 1979. Used it for 31 years and then gave it to me 10 years ago. It has been used almost daily and I plan to keep it for a long, long time. One the back there is a small carving saying JNA - 'Jugoslovenska narodna armija' meaning Yugoslav people's army.

Kenwood Mini Whisk from the 1980s. Absolute tank of a hand mixer!

Dad got this old Victa Pacer lawn mower when he was 25, im 23 and just moved into my new house. After a quick clean and oil she still runs like a dream. 30+ years old.

For all my bald dudes out there - this Oster Classic 76 has been giving me weekly cuts since 2007 and it’s still going strong. I tried a few cheap ones before splurging on this and have never looked back.

I heard you like old lawnmowers?

Watched my dad use the same hammer for 30 years. This was my first purchase after buying my own house.

When I got my first car at 17 , I bought a $40 jumper cable instead of cheap $20 jumper cable , I'm about to turn 40 and this same jumper cable have been with me through 5 different car and save my ass and people I know countless time.

Eva Trio pots! I love how their lids are interchangeable and you buy them separately, making just the combinations you need. You can put them on any heating source and into the oven and the dishwasher. Use any tools in them. After 30 years of daily use and abuse they still look like new.

WELBILT mini-fridge, my grandma bought for my uncle in the late 80’s. Used it through college and then his first apartment with his fiancé. Gave it back to her when he bought a house in 2000. She had it in the sunroom for 18 years then gave it to me, both fridge and freezer drawer work flawlessly.
