I was watching the pawn stars in history channel and it amuses of as to the old stuffs people own! They are so old even up to the 16th century! People find stuffs such as gas pumps, world war uniforms, revolvers, antique blocks, even buy bond posters! I always get surprised as to how much they were worth! A couple of hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars worth! With this, we will never know how much treasures we got in our back yards! Well, i want to ask you all, what's the oldest thing you have got? Did you buy it for collection or this was handed down to you by your parents or grandparents? Thank you!

oh nothing that old really, :) probably my oldest stuff is a teddy bear which was given to me when i was three months old :) I still have it though ;) Hmmm when it comes to heirlooms we have this ancient sewing machine which was given to my grandmother and a phonograph which was bought by my grandfather when he was still a young man :)

I own some notes that are out of use now. i saved them because i want to show my kids in the future. I also have some old Jamaican postage stamps that i saved to remind my self how far the price is coming from. Books are my favorite and i never destroy them. I have some very old books that my parents use to use and they do help me in school. i bought my first cellphone in 2000 and i still have it using. That phone is undoubtedly the strongest phone ever made. Its a blue Nokia phone.

I love pawn stars, and american pickers. It amazes me the stuff that people bring in to pawn. The oldest thing I "will" own is my great grandmothers. It is a porcelain chain of hearts that go on the christmas tree, it is like a procelain garland, and a very old glass mistletoe. I say "will" because it is going to be handed down to me from my mother. I don't think that either are worth any money, but it wouldn't matter to me because they are a family heirloom and are passed down from generation to generation. When we cleaned out the house that we bought, we didn't find any treasures, which I'm sure even if there was one I didn't think it was and tossed it. I really don't have a good eye for such things lol.
