I read a lot of vintage clothing lovers' blogs, and I see them say that certain places and pieces make their heart speed up. A room full of 1930s dresses will make their palms begin to sweat and their stomach do flip-flops. Well, I get that way when I find vintage cameras. I wasn't interested in collecting them until I inherited about 10 of my grandfather's cameras. I've started searching for them in the stores around my town and I've got quite a collection going! My built-in bookshelves are becoming my camera display area.
I found this little treasure this afternoon and I'm SO excited. Not only is it the sexiest camera I've found, I can actually get film for it! I ordered some as soon as I got home, and I can't wait to try it out.
When I saw this on the table, I had no idea what it was. I didn't see the box under it, and I thought it was a cigar case or something like that. Anyway, I just decided to pick it up and look at it and I noticed the Polaroid manual underneath it. That's when my heart started skipping, and I realized what I had in my hands. I have a weird obsession with things that are this practical. I LOVE that I can fold it up and stick it in my purse.
This is how I'm displaying it. I just love the brown color!
I'll hopefully have some images to show you soon.
Does anyone else have this camera? How do you like it?
