Quote from: dismalist on September 27, 2022, 04:52:01 PMA long, long time ago, in a place far far away, with my low income, I had use for some small tables, you know, to put the wine glasses on. I found a store selling such, furniture of rattan, including little tables. These were made in a further far away country. I purchased three little square tables that store under each other, and one circular table. They have proved so useful, I moved them across continents. Purchased maybe ca. 1975, and I still have and use them. I'm looking at the round one right now; it has a vase full of flowers on it.Luck matters.
Quote from: Parasaurolophus on September 27, 2022, 06:43:34 PMMy first tent, too. It was a used Tarn 3, and it lasted forever. I still have it, but it got hit with mould a few years back and now I'm not so sure about it. What a fabulous tent that was, though. Alas, MEC stopped making them a while ago.
QuoteCome to think of it, the first pair of hiking boots I bought for myself, too. MEC brand and discontinued as well, unfortunately. But cheap, and so, so durable. I had them for at least ten years, and took them all over the world.
