My in-laws were in town from Tuesday till this Tuesday. Before my mother-in-law left, we went on a hunt for vintage items at my favorite thrift store. My mom met us there. My mom was the one who got me into thrift store shopping, yard sales and antique malls. Anyway, I really hit the jackpot this time. I found yards and yards of fabric. I have been collecting fabric to use for sewing projects and as backdrops for my photography. Then these were few other items I found…
Um. Yeah. I found this Polaroid Automatic 230 Land Camera for $3.78. That’s right. Case and all. It had the flash, original instruction manual and even extra bulbs for the flash. No film. Will need to find some film. I am so in love with this camera. I hope it works.
I am also treasuring this baby. A Kodak Instamatic M 50 super 8 film projector. Still works. I plugged it in and lit right up. Now I just need to ask my dad for some of his old super 8 films. I bought this from the thrift store for $2.75.
I have always said I am a shoes and purses kind of gal. So when I found these, I had to get them. Two of them still had price tags on them. I got each of them for about $3.50 each.
Got this beauty at the antique mall for $10. I’m going to use it to keep all of Kaye’s dress up clothes and accessories in one place. Also found a bunch of old wooden thread spools for $0.80 and $0.30. I grabbed a handful of those too.
