New isn’t always best. Every once in a while, you have something that really stands the test of time. Maybe it’s a watch or pair of boots you splurged on, or maybe it’s a coffee mug or jacket with a lot of sentimental value. Either way, having something in your life that’s dependable is always a perk.
It’s enough to make you wish that everything was that way, right? Do you have anything you’ve been loving for over 10 years?
Here’s One For The Coffee Hipsters
For starters, this coffee maker is beautiful. Apparently, it brews a perfect eight cups of coffee in five minutes and has been doing so for over 50 years! Can’t beat that quality.
There’s Nothing Like A Good Pair Of Work Boots
These Sorel boots have been going strong for 20 years, and they look just like new! Granted, they’ve been well taken care of, but it just goes to show you how things last if you take care of them.
Cheers To This Waffle Maker
Someone bought this beauty for 25 cents at a garage sale. They got it home and found out that this waffle maker had been bringing fluffy, perfectly cooked joy since 1958.
Leather Stands The Test Of Time
This bag was made back in 1991, which doesn’t seem like it was that long ago, but it was almost 30 years ago. That’s a long time for a bag to be in such good condition.
Love The Color Of This Blender
This Oster blender has been making yummy drinks since 1958. You’d probably pay a small fortune for a new one that has this vintage look to it, so why not stick with the old one that works just as well?
Who Doesn’t Love A Fixer-Upper?
This car was given to someone on their 13th birthday as a project for him and his father to restore together. It’s been around since 1967 and he’s only the third person to own it!
It Probably Feels Like A Lovely Hug
A good plaid shirt will never go out of style, and this man wearing his grandfather’s favorite shirt since 1952 is proof. It’s nice to be able to hold onto something that belonged to someone you loved.
That’s A Good Looking Gym Bag
This gym bag has been dealing with sweaty workout clothes since the ’70s and it shows no sign of slowing down. It’s never even had the zipper replaced on it.
This Fan Is Exactly 100 Years Old!
Originally built in 1920, this Star Rite has been cleaned up and still works good as new. It’s a nice looking fan, not so much of an eyesore as some of the ones they make now.
If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Replace It
This Kenmore sewing machine and kit had been put to good use by this person’s mother, who passed it down to the current owner, who showed a strong interest in sewing as well.
Gotta Love That Orange Color
This Le Creuset cooking set is beautiful! You won’t find colors like that anymore. They even have this perfect little rack for it. They were originally made in 1977 and are still making delicious meals.
It’s Still Being Put To Good Use
This old school USSR stopwatch is still being put to good use by its current owner, who uses it in their physiology lab. Not its intended use, but still a good use for it.
Who doesn’t love a good pen? This beautiful fountain pen is 97 years old! That means it has been writing letters, poems, stories, and who knows what else for almost 100 years!
This Reciever Turns 46 This Year
To be fair, it has been cleaned up and had a bit of rewiring done, but it’s otherwise the same machine from 1974 when it was originally built. I bet the sound is amazing.
Those Are Some Tiny Books
These miniature books are actually Shakespeare plays. They’re 111 years old and they’re in pretty great shape. Here’s a question for you, though, why make them so tiny like that?
Who Remembers These Bad Boys?
How many of us would love to relive our childhoods with a Game Boy that’s still in mint working condition? I can’t say for certain, but that cool case probably helped a lot.
This One Has A Bit Of Sentimental Value
This Stanley thermos was bought by the current owner’s dad after his first paycheck as an engineer. Now, after all this time, his son is taking it to his first job.
That’s One Hardy Alarm Clock
This bad boy has ruining mornings since 1997 and it shows no sign of slowing down. It’s crazy to think there was a time when we used these to wake up and not our cell phones.
Telling Time In Style
This guy bought this Casio watch because he loved the one his dad had so much when he was growing up. Let’s hope that this new one lasts as long as his dad’s.
A Sophisticated Look For Any Study
This Herman Miller Eames chair was made in 1947 and it’s as good as new. It’s amazing how some things never go out of style. This beautiful chair will always be a nice touch to add to any room.
The Vintage Camera
What list of amazing things would be complete without a beautiful old vintage camera? This 1958 Rolleiflex still takes beautiful pictures and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Who Remembers These Bad Boys?
It’s hard to believe that these first hit the scene back in 2007. Now, we have our iPod in our phones, which is wild. If someone had asked me in 2007 if that was gonna be a thing, I would have said no way.
Who Doesn’t Love Popcorn?
An original Popcorn Pumper. These used to make the perfect bowl of popcorn every time and were a household staple for people who loved to go to Blockbuster and rent movies.
That Is One Old Plant
So this is a cute story. The person who owns this plant got it as a gift from their grandmother, who bought it for them the day they were born. It’s been well taken care of as you can see since it’s still thriving.
Love Those Colors!
These pastel beauties have been making cooking stylish and fun since the 1960s! What a find it was for the person who picked these up at a garage sale. Anyone else a little jealous?
Everything Comes Back In Style
This young lady was lucky enough to be gifted her mom’s Levi’s denim jacket from the ’80s. It’s vintage and chic and she’s absolutely rocking it. She and her mom should compare looks.
Who Doesn’t Love Lego?
It’s a nice feeling when you can give your children something you enjoyed yourself as a child. This 40-year-old Lego set is bringing this guy’s children as much joy as he had with it when he was little.
What A Beautiful Jacket
This coat was gifted to someone by their grandfather, who had been wearing it ever since he was 20! That means that this coat has been turning heads in that family for over 50 years.
That’s A Smart Looking Fridge
This General Electric fridge was built in the 1940s and is still working perfectly. The person who owns it got it from a friend’s grandma, who replaced it after using it for over 70 years.
A Lovely Souvenir
This 1960s Dunkin Donuts mug has been a souvenir in this person’s family since the 1960s, when it was accidentally brought home after someone enjoyed their morning coffee and donut.
