Some facts about Old Stuff Day
Old Stuff Day has different meanings to different people. Most people use this day to cherish their old but meaningful belongings. This could be a book you've had since you were a child or an heirloom passed down through the generations. You can hunt down your belongings to find something special and appreciate it on this day. However, Old Stuff Day may be considered as an opportunity to break out of your typical habits.
Old Stuff Day also gives you the boost you might need to try new experiences. When someone asks you how you are or what you've been doing, you usually respond with "same age, same age?" If this phrase is in your vocabulary, you will definitely benefit from Old Stuff Day. It's a day for you to do things differently. Try something you've never done before. Break out of your usual routine and live a different life, even if it's only for a day.
Of course, when we talk about second hand, there is always the question, how much is old? Well, for an item to be considered vintage, it has to be at least 30 years old. For an item to be considered antique, it needs to be at least 100 years old. For something old, it's subjective! You can consider something old a day after you buy it if you are the type of person who quickly falls out of love with everything.
History of Old Stuff Day
The creator or inventor of Old Stuff Day is still unknown. Some peoples often see some old things as something that needs to be replaced by newer, brighter ones, and not all of them are useless. As for wines, for example, they taste better and are more valuable as they get older. Many things like maps, jewelry, clothing, artifacts, and books will gain more value as they age. This is due to the aesthetics and quality of the old historical era and the technology may not exist in the present time. More than inanimate objects, wisdom and knowledge are things that we can get from the old peoples. From the elders in the family, it is possible to know the grandparents in the family, the old genealogy, the ancient origin. The Olds will give you the most colorful and upscale accounts of the early days that any history book can afford. Therefore, Old Stuff Day is a day to learn new things.
