At what point is anything we make today going to be a collectible antique?

I have something of an obsession with vintage packaging. I love it. Most of it was made to last. Metal, glass and wood were the materials of choice instead of today’s plastic, plastic and more plastic. And there was a beautiful design to a lot of it.

At a garage sale last week I paid $3 for an metal Saltine cracker tin from 1969. It is both beautiful and incredibly functional. When my grandkids are old enough to appreciate the past, are they really going to want anything we currently sell in stores today?
