Default "Oldies but goodies"

When I was 16 my father gave me my very first razor .Although I no longer shave the razor is still in excellent condition and can be used .

What item do you have from your youth that can still be used ?

My high school "letter sweater" from Southeastern High School in Detroit. Earned it for swimming 4 years on team, making all-city and all-state.

Bought it at Detroit Knitting Mills in 1956 (graduated 1960), beautiful wool and I wear it to 50's parties now and again and usually on Halloween. Have had some moth holes mended.

Best part it, IT STILL FITS!

I have my original Cub Scout knife. It's 50 years old.

I have one of my baby shoes too, it's a little older.

When Mum died we found my old toy dog on wheels she had kept for about 60 years, I took the view that sentimental it may be, it had to go, have to stop somewhere, I regret it now, could have found somewhere for it.
My wife & I, well I, tend not to throw things out, we still have some stuff we bought when we married 40 odd years ago!
