Old Stuff Day represents an opportunity to reflect on anything and everything that’s old. That could mean visiting an antique shop and marveling at the age and history behind the pieces you find and perhaps making a purchase or two. It could also mean going through all the old stuff that’s collected in your home and deciding what you need to keep and what can be tossed or donated. Or instead of mulling over physical items, you can focus on learning about the past by researching a historical subject of interest to you.
I decided to find the oldest pieces available on Etsy. To my surprise, there are some really really old antiques to be found, and several items go back to the 1100s. I even found a small Roman terracotta jug circa 100BC (see top right of the treasury)! Now that’s pretty darn old!
Take a peek at the treasury, and take a moment to think about the history that all of these featured pieces could tell. Plus, I encourage you to visit every shop as they each boast dozens of incredible and awe-inspiring antiquities. You can also visit my “old” Every Day is a Holiday treasuries here!

“Every Day is a Holiday” is my Etsy Treasury project for 2014. I’m hoping to find unique and beautiful items that exemplify the holiday of the day—the sillier and weirder, the better! What’s better than finding something worth celebrating each and every day?
