Like, retro tech, or cool trinkets and things. Not an old pair of socks down the back of the sofa.

For me it's my original PC game collection from around 1994 / 1995, still have the floppy disk rack with all the disks in, and a few CD ROMs from the era too like POD and Theme Hospital. Even bought a USB floppy drive recently to explore them all.

Still have my Atari 2600 (I think, might have sold it at some point) and the original GameBoy.  Also, I have a 1905 Howard cabinet grand piano if that counts.

My bowling ball is older than I am. It was originally Mother's, and it still has Mother's name engraved on it. Call it a good luck charm, even though my average score is only 160 or so.

My first bass. As a lot of you know, I left my home town back in 2010. All I brought with me was my bass, laptop, and a bag of clothes.

It's an Ibanez Soundgear -- got it when I was 16. Not bad for the price and years of service it gave me. I can never bring myself to part with an instrument so it's stashed in my closet. It's been beaten to hell and back from the shitty band I was playing with in the Nashville scene, so it's more or less retired at this point. I'm hoping to give it some TLC here soon though,
