“Still operational, an original 1957 wall-mount refrigerator”

This house has a built-in cassette player audio system.

“This glorious antique sofa is $100 and in near perfect condition!”

The Seiko TV Watch, 1982

“Found this limited edition Taz Polaroid camera at the thrift shop today!”

Izismile Video Collection

“This stove has rang the bell for many years!”

This is a Hans J. Wegner 1963 Shell Chair. Today, such a chair costs just over $3,000.

“We thrifted this horrifying lobster clock. The cashier told us it was originally from the Soviet Union. Something similar is sold at $3,200.”

An Italian table lamp made of glass from the 1980s

It’s a vintage laundry hamper.

“This is a 1978 Creators Swinging Couple Rain Lamp. Found this at a thrift store for $30 without the figures.”

“Originally, it was $60 for both. Now, they cost more than $1,000.”

“My mom thrifted this cool makeup mirror from the 1960s and 1970s.”

This is a lava lamp that was made in Great Britain in the 1970s. It’s definitely better than all these modern Chinese lamps.

“I used to play with this Tonka truck when I was a child. Now, my 4-year-old son plays with it.”

“My 32-year-old Maytag stackable washer/dryer that hasn’t needed repairs in over 15 years”

“My grandmother received this Aerolux bulb as a baby gift in 1948. It still lights up!”

“My great-grandmother’s Moka, with an interesting design, is at least 60 years old.”

A unique rocker

This perforator dates to around 1910 and works flawlessly every time.

“I’ve used this watch for 37 years now.”

“My 1970s Chrome Sunbeam Mixmaster is still running strong today!”

Stuff used to be made a lot better and it was meant to last. These days everything is cheap and disposable. People get fed up with it too. I know I do.

So, please tell me why my wife isn't disposable. She broke shortly after the wedding ceremony.

Christy, was a reading problem. You didn't read the product specification with attention. She is not broken, this is the normal operation expected for this type of equipment. You can belive me, I have one with same kind of problem for 37 years.

There was a lot of cr#p made in "the good old days". Most of it, with a few exceptions, is in the landfill.
