Not so old - would be a book from the early 1800's probably. Don't have any really old ones at the moment. The oldest thing I've ever owned was a Bible from 1483. That was something special.

My dad has something that was part of a house he lived in when he was little. I’m not sure how old it would be, but it might have been there for a while before he lived there.

I took a few pieces of concrete from a football ground that was built in 1879 when it was being demolished. I don’t know how old the concrete would be.

A few antique tools and books that probably date back to 1800s.

Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...

Be a little brave for a little bit of time.

There's a hurricane lamp lying around somewhere probably from the late 1800's.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I don't have many old items... I think my baby passport is the oldest thing I have currently.

Everything in here is ancient. It was all just in a different form at one time.

Seriously though? I have no idea. I know my dad has some logs from his job he had when I was born. I had no idea he still had them. He has pictures of his family when they were all young. He's in his 70s so those are definitely older than most stuff in here.

The oldest things I personally have are (I guess) my birth certificate and a stuffed animal toy I got when I was 2 or something. I've gotten rid of pretty much everything I didn't actually have to keep. There are very few things that I personally own that are older than 10 - 20 years. That's what happens when you have to cram your whole life into a small room. If you want new stuff it has to go somewhere.

My dad's jacket. I think he got it while he was in the Army, so before I was born. Otherwise, I don't think I have anything that's older than I am.

Not to sound like a dumbass but I love grand pianos. It is like a kind of statement for cultured folk to own one, even if they don't play it much. Do you play? What would you like them to play for you?

A ring that was passed down from my grandmother to my mom to me. So I guess it was made around 1940. Could be older, not sure.

A stack of Roman copper coins, circa 300 AD. Supposedly not fake, but you know those can be hard to avoid.

We probably have some old books from the late 1800-early 1900. I once found an old coin that was from the late 1800 but I don't know where it is anymore.

It was very old and probably very valuable as well! So gutted I lost it.


In my uni apartment I have some Victorian pictures that are probably even older. I used to collect antiques such as books or pictures from the Victorian era.
