IKEA Markus: Just realized that I've owned this chair since 2008 when my parents bought it for me in Middle School. I was going to replace it when it finally broke but it looks like that may never actually happen.

Scripto P369 Pencil- freshly polished - in daily use since Undergrad days in 1982.

These cross pens were my grandfathers from the 1960s. He worked as a test fail analysis engineer for General dynamics. These pens were used to try to win the space race, and now I use them every day as I work to follow in his footsteps.

1983 Lucky Goldstar (LG) TSR-581 Boombox that I bought a few days ago. Missing a few things and could use a bit of TLC, but otherwise works great.

Finished cleaning Grandad’s tools. Found his initials carved in a wrench after cleaning. He passed away before I was born. I never met him, but we have turned the same wrench.

IKEA garlic press and Mexican citrus squeezer from the flea market. I’ve had these for years with near daily use and they’re just like the day I bought them! Both <$10.

Sad day after 20+ years. We didn’t budget to ever have to replace it. Our can opener became a can’t opener. Haven’t found the receipt to take it back, yet.

Brewmatic - built in coffee maker, waking my lazy ass up for over 30 years, changed the heating element once.
