An aged couple are eliminating family home equipment they purchased greater than 50 years in the past.
Sydney Saunders, 83, and spouse Rachel, 81, from Exeter, have a tumble dryer, water boiler, cooker and washer, all in latest working order.
They purchased among the objects after they acquired married in 1956 and have been utilizing most of them since.
They are saying they’re “not ” in cash and hope a museum or collector will take them.
Included within the objects on the market is a Servis washer which the couple purchased for £60 after they first acquired married.
“It was some huge cash in these days,” mentioned Mrs Saunders.
All the objects function, however Mr Saunders mentioned the washer does “have the slightest of leaks”.
The tumble dryer was purchased when their first daughter was born 55 years in the past and was used till a few months in the past.
In addition they have a Child Belling cooker purchased in 1956 for £19 and a five-gallon boiler purchased in 1959 for about £15.
The couple determined to do away with the home equipment after “having a filter out”.
“It might be an terrible disgrace to throw them away or to take them to the tip,” mentioned Mrs Saunders.
“We have been right here for 60 years and we have saved them for spares for years, however now we’ll by no means use them once more.
“I am not bothered in regards to the worth – I might like them to go to a museum or one thing like that to allow them to be preserved.”
