Vintage Finds: Retro cameras {+ 3 for sale!)

Dec 7, 2009

I had so much fun writing up the Classic Finds posts this season at Flights of Fancy that I've decided to put a spin on things and make "Vintage Finds" a permanent Monday series on CB! I'll be spotlighting fun vintage {and sometimes modern} finds to incorporate in weddings but make sure you don't miss the last installment of Classic Finds this Friday - I'll be chatting about vintage globes! But for now, here's to the first installment of Vintage Finds. Hope you enjoy:

I love, love, looooove incorporating vintage items in a wedding and one of my all-time favorites has to be vintage cameras. They embody such a nostalgic charm and are so much fun to use in wedding and engagement photos ... whether the groom is pretending to photograph his lovely bride or if someone is simply holding the sweet technology of yesteryear. Or they even look darling just sitting about as decor, both at a wedding and at home!

If you love this idea and are looking for a vintage camera of your own, keep reading. I have three for sale! Details below. ;o)

One couple collected different styles of vintage cameras and created a do-it-yourself photobooth for guests. Adorable!

Hooked on the idea? Here's the three I have FOR SALE:


Above: Vintage Brownie Hawkeye camera
This adorable box camera was made by Eastman Kodak around 1949. It's definitely fabulous for wedding photo props - held by either the bride or groom or just used as vintage decor! And I was told by the owner that it should still work properly with the correct film if you're up for a film experiment! Film size is 620 {roll} and picture size is 2 1/4 x 2 1/4". The original flash attachment is also included and is shown above.
Price: $98.00 + shipping
If you're interested in purchasing, just drop a note to me at theclassicbride@gmail.com for a shipping quote.

This whimsically named camera was made in the U.S. by Imperial under Eastman Kodak. The camera measures 4" in length x 2-1/2" wide x 2-1/2" thick and it uses 126 film. While I'm not certain the camera is in working condition, it is no doubt a splendid choice for wedding photo props - held by either the bride or groom or just used as vintage decor! And the Magimatic is the perfect choice for the bride looking to infuse a little magic in her day! ;o)
Price: $78.00 SALE $39.00 + shipping

This cute little camera was made around the late 1960s and it has an electronic shutter and fabric loop handle. While I'm unsure of the working condition of the camera, it's superb for wedding photo props - held by either the bride or groom or just used as vintage decor!
