Some old items in our lives are still worth hanging on to

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At Omelette Cafe, off Buckwalter Parkway in Bluffton, we asked: “What is the oldest thing you own?”

Jay Kaye, Erie, Pa.: “Probably our house. It’s 71 years old.”











Liz Trout, Okatie: “My grandfather’s dining room chairs. They’re certainly antiques.”











Luther Trout, Okatie: “My grandmother and grandfather’s hutch and buffet.”











Mei Goldfarb, Bluffton: “My necklace. My mother gave it to me as a child and I still wear it.”











Oliver Sharpe, Savannah: “Probably my car. It’s 4 years old. I don’t own many old things.”
