“My parents’ microwave is 34 years old. It has outlasted 3 refrigerators, a stove, a dishwasher, and about a dozen toasters, and it still runs fine.”
“My dad bought this leather motorcycle jacket 40 years ago. I just applied some leather polish and lubricated the zippers. It made it look as good as new!”
“This mixer is over 40 years old and it belonged to my mom. My husband said that he won’t get me a new one until it dies. It seems like my grandkids will use it.”
“I’ve had this colander for 26 years. It’s lasted more than half of my life.”
“My parents bought this rabbit when I was born. I slept with it every night up to my teenage years. I’m 25 years old now.”

“My grandpa bought these Red Wind boots in 1975. I just replaced the soles and cleaned them up a bit.”
This sewing machine is almost 100 years old and it still works.
“My mom got this denim jacket in the ’80s and now this thing is mine. My mom has a similar one but with a velvet collar. I hope she’ll also give it to me one day.”
“In 1995, I spent a fortune to buy the complete set of McDonald’s Batman Forever cups. I’m still using them to this day.”
“I used this juicer to make fresh orange juice for my parents when I was a child. It’s already 51 years old and still going strong.”

“My grandma bought this armchair at an antique shop when my dad was a child. Everything except for the upholstery is original, even the horsehair filling.”
“I just found this suit from the 1940s. I love it — the fabric is nice and it literally fits like a glove.”
“This fireplace is over 130 years old and this model is out of production now. We paid $1,800 for it and the modern ones cost approximately the same.”
This Westinghouse fridge from the 1930s still works.
“I’m shocked that my aunt and then her sisters managed to keep this shirt dress in perfect condition. It’s over 50 years old but it looks like new.”
“I cook a lot and this is my favorite pan collection. I got it from my grandma. The oldest pan is 40 years old.”
“My great grandfather’s watch from the times of World War II is still ticking.”
“I’m so delighted with this quilted dressing gown. It’s about 70 years old but I feel very chic wearing it.”
“This Gillette Slim razor is 56 years old and it still shaves great. I bought it for $15 on eBay.”
“I got this blazer from my mom. I’m 27 years old and it’s older than me.”
“I cleaned up this bag from the 1960s. I’m sure that vintage clothes have way better quality than modern pieces.”
“This is a 117-year-old Peugeot coffee grinder. My parents use it to grind pepper.”
“On my wedding day, I realized that I hated my dress. So I went to the thrift store and found a perfect lace dress that was over 70 years old. It fit like a glove.”
“These Pyrex bowls are already 50 years old but it’s the only thing my wife wanted to get from her parents as a gift. We use them daily.”
“I bought this pea coat at the thrift shop for $19. It’s about 17 years old. This thing weighs a ton and feels absolutely bulletproof. This is a real quality item.”

Absolutely no one in 2070 will find 2020 furniture and appliances holding up after 50 years.

That's a true statement, I have my grandmas flight jacket from WWII, it's absolutely beautiful.

Tom, I beg to differ. It's still possible to get furniture that will last decades. You may need to reupholster them, but good quality can still be bought. Certainly not at IKEA, though. There is a Norwegian brand called Stressless that will last for generations, but they cost a small fortune. Still worth it.

Hessy,

I don't know about that: I have IKEA shelves that date back to the late 1980ies and are still in use (and moved through 3 countries and across one ocean). I'd say it greatly depends on the type of furniture and how it is treated.

At some point the mixer, pic 3, might need brushes. You can still get them, tho you might have to put your mind to it. The bushings are probably good for a darn long time. I don't think I'd want to pay to replace them. But someone who loves this type of equipment might put the work in. With light service the bushing should last a long, long time.

#20 27? I'm skeptical of that. You look closer to 37.

I still use an old plasma 65 inch TV that my grandad bought in 1955. It still works perfectly and I use it with the original DVD player he purchased in 1959. Quality lasts a lifetime......

When I buy new clothes nowadays and find something great looking I always get sad cause I know that 3 months from now it will probably look like I got it from a dumpster somewhere, just from wearing it, even if you handwash everything.
I see clothes fabric (even expensive items) damage just from hanging in the store.

#8 Those sad unlined denim jackets were what the less well off kids wore to school and I can remember seeing those suckers freeze in those things. Even the lined ones weren't much better. I hated the denim craze and it was everywhere even fanny packs. Yeah that was a good look ha ha.

got a 2nd hand alarmclock/radio in my 20's.
No idea how old it was when I got it.
I'm 45 and it still gets me up every morning
