With Chinese movies of Youth and Forever Young making a hit, the air of nostalgia has recently formed a trend.

On January 22 morning, a nostalgic item-show was held at the Tongde plaza in Kunming, Yunnan Province, showcasing over 100 timeworn pieces.

Used to be daily necessities for Kunming citizens in 1960s-70s, the old things reminded locals, especially the seniors, of the days gone by.

Here are some of the displayed:
