Sparked by a post by George Peterson about his Tascam tape recorder, I was thinking about my 1885 Steinway B that gets daily use. Then I looked around at the cast iron pans I use daily that belonged to my grandmother (making them probably 100 years old). The Wusthof knives I bought when I was a teenager were the first purchase I made when I moved out of my parents house for college.
So I asked the question on my Facebook page and got some wonderful responses from a wide cross section of friends. Even more amusing was seeing people who didn't know each other interact because the "things" they owned were the same.
From drills to stoves, 200 year old cellos (2 of them listed), Selmer Saxophones (2 of these also) to movie theaters, it was fun to read about the things we cherish, use and inherited (or purchased) that still have life today.
