8. I use my mom's pealrs, but those are more of a family heirloom
they were my grand mothers.

But I get what you say exactly. We use those only on VERY SPECIAL occasions, like oh my wedding day oh eleven years ago.

I have a feeling though that consumerism really took off in the last 20 years into full bloom that is.

Of course feeling does not mean reality, and for that I'd need a good social studies paper or two.
