Antique Magic

Yesterday was a day that I had basically to myself. After work I decided to go to an antique store close to my house, and boy was it fun! I've been there before, but each time is totally different. Here are the things I snagged this time around.

This is a vintage Polaroid land camera model j66. It's worth about $40 in the condition I got it in, and I got it for $12 :) Of course I won't be selling it, but it's nice to know I got a deal! Polaroid produced around 1 million of these between 1961 and 1963. I'm going to do some research and see about shooting with it.
I also found this sweet little heart necklace. It appears to be handmade, but I'm not sure.
Last, but not least, I picked up this petite glass jar. Recently I went to a Ke$ha concert, and I took home some of the "glitter" that she threw into the crowd. I finally have somewhere to keep it! That was definitely one of the most energetic concerts I've been to, although the crowd of people were not the most fun to be around.

I love your purchases. I had a polaroid Swinger, smaller "cooler" version made in the late 60's. Had more fun with that camera. Wish I still had it. Rhonda
