My Mom's Revere Ware cookware. Same pots & pans from when I was a kid in the '60s. Lots of my Dad's tools, most of which are older than me.

I have my wrought iron bed from the 1800s and my pine dresser that I had in my bedroom in the 1950s, and grandma's kitchen knife - who know how old that is. I also use Aunt Mary's 1920s sewing tables.

New post: Reading everyone's posts is so much fun. You all reminded me of a few other items I use every day or week. Cost iron pans,some probably around 100 years old, the newest one I bought at Montgomery Wards on State Street in Chicago in the 1960s. Then there is the spatula I bought at a new store called K-Mart, noticed today it's breaking in half, sob. And to the person interested in a new/old waffle iron, I have one like your have and never use it anymore. And to all the folks with old F150s, I inherited my husbands wood truck when he passed - it really looks awful but I love the truck, it goes through the deepest snow.

I still use my mother's pizza pans from the early 1970s. They're not just for pizza, anymore.

I still use my Grandmother's heirloom 1860's burl maple dresser as my everyday dresser! I love the functionality of it and the drawers still work perfectly. My wife uses a newer 1890 or so version...

Yeah...that modern stuff just doesn't have the same feel.

I still have and use a giant GERRY down-filled parka I bought at Christy Sports in Lakewood in 1971 when I first got into winter mountaineering. That was when they still sold only outdoor gear and none of this patio furniture nonsense. It probably saved my butt a couple times. It is bright orange with a fur-trimmed hood and still wears like new. When the temps approach zero and I have to be outside, nothing beats it. Once in awhile I take it out and dig the memories. Nobody makes anything like it these days. If I die in Winter, cremate me in it.
