    hard to say as I have a lot of old things in the house. I just like old better than new. I do have a silver spoon from the 1830's. Bought in a thrift store.

    I have a very old crock my mom used to make sauerkraut as far back as I can remember. I use it for kraut now, too.

    I have a set of a pitcher and glasses in carnival glass that belonged to my grandma. She was born in the 1880's. Not sure how old the glasses are or when or where Grandma got them.

    I have a very old filigree silver ring with a red stone in it, given to me on my 12th birthday by a neighbor. She got it from her mother when she was 12, and she was old when she gave it to me. She didn't have anyone to pass it on to. No idea how old it is, but I know it's quite old.

    I have a table that was my great grandmothers. It's a beautiful decorative piece. I will pass it on to my dgd when she's older, because her middle name came from my great grandmother.

    I still use my Betty Crocker cookbook that I bought in my early 20's, A crockpot and a few towels from our wedding. 30+ years
