Do you own any stuff that you’ve had for years and years that still works and that you still like to use?
I love it when people show me things they’ve owned for years or even decades that are still going strong.
Heck, maybe these items were even passed on down to them from their parents and can now be considered family heirlooms.
And that’s exactly what these folks did when they shared their own personal gadgets that they’ve owned for years and that STILL WORK.
Let’s take a look at the goods!
1. Yes, it counts!
Going wayyyy back.
Does a sewing machine count. I’ve had mine for 15 years but according to the serial number database it’s 120 years old this year. pic.twitter.com/qKft2pcOvN

2. From your great-great uncle.

3. Collecting appliances.
Hi I collect old appliances and my kitchen is based around them. Dishwasher 1960 fridge late 1950s washing machine 1965 cooker 1961. Lots of small appliances also from that era. Oldest working is a 1935 hoover. All easy ( ish ) to fix. And a little different shall I say ! 😂 pic.twitter.com/VnTCjbddsz

4. Can’t get rid of it.
It has sentimental value.
Still use this Nokia phone as an alarm . Can’t chuck it as it has romantic texts on it from before my husband was my husband. Sigh. pic.twitter.com/7lpOwP59EV

9. Works perfectly.
This was my grandma’s toaster. I saw an exact copy in the design museum years ago – the sign said it was 1920s, which would fit since she got married in 1925. Works perfectly too. pic.twitter.com/81IYUopgrR
