I still have the 18" doll dressed in traditional Slovak bridal costume sent us for our wedding in 1958. Of course, I'm not using her, she just stands there in my corner cabinet.

We are still using SEVERAL Crystal plates & bowls that I received as Shower Gifts for Our Wedding 58 years ago....

We are also still using - service for 8 - Sterling Silver that I purchased by payment plan from 1952-1955. I really clearly remember that my Father told me "You're being foolish" and His Father correcting Him - saying "It's a Good Investment for a young Girl".... < I was 17 at the time >

I got the set appraised about 10 years ago - they said that they would give me $2500.00 at that time......

I also have two green glass pieces that was my Mother-in-laws (She died 1 year before we married) My Father-in-law said that they were a wedding gift that they received in 1930.... One is a candy dish & 2nd one is a pastry dish with upright handle in the middle.

My ironing board wasn't a wedding present, but it was given to me shortly after I married my first husband. (Now Divorced) still have the ironing board. The woman that gave it to me said she had it for 25 years, now I've had it for 47 years. It's wood and I wouldn't use anything else.

I was married in 1943. I still have a mirror and candlesticks from my co-workers at that time. Also pieces of the silver cutlery I was collecting. Probably more things that don't come to mind at the moment.

I must be terrible at ironing I need a need a new ironing board every few year and don't get me started on irons they seem to go pop when I look at them

I still have a full set of service for 12 of Courier & Ives dinnerware that we purchased from our supermarket a piece at a time when they were featuring a different dish every week. I believe this was about 1968 because, by then we already had 7 children and needed service for 12! I also have 3 boxes of service for 4 of Corelle Holly Days dinnerware from about the same time period.
