Grandmas Antique Tchotchkes


We’ve all heard the stories about how the millennials don’t want our stuff anymore. They don’t want the responsibility, to pay insurance on it, to store it or anything else.  Friends, Neighbors and Clients have all told me their stories about how their kids don’t want the silver tea set, aunties china set or grandma’s tchotchkes (trinkets). This includes me. My niece and nephew really aren’t interested in the family furniture from the 1880’s. Nor the picture of the family members that originally used that furniture. My front room has 4 boxes of Christmas Village pieces, a box of porcelain figurines and other stuff. Friends have given me these things because their family didn’t want them and they want them to go to somebody who will “appreciate them”.


You know what? I don’t think I want them either. But out of respect I’m keeping these things at least for awhile. Fortunately I live near “Florence CO, the antiques Capital of Colorado” No doubt the antique shops are going to start filling their shops with these things. And I may be contributing.


What are your thoughts?

Will new residential building be smaller because the millennials won’t fill these houses? \

Is now the time to start collecting tchotchkes?

Millenials accumulate and hoard more tchotchkes than previous generations. Except that all the tchotchkes are virtual and in the cloud. Floorspace not needed.

Dena, we do see a lot of "trinkets" that our kids definitely won't want, and good thing there is a shop in Florence to accept all of them!   Nice catching up with you last night!

Good morning Dena. I love old things and still collect the, I live in a small house and need to be careful, but I buy what brings me joy.
