There's something about vintage film items, both photography and cinema. It brings me back to a more simple time. I remember the cool flash cube Kodak cameras and watching educational movies in school on a film projector. I loved it when the reel ran out and the film flapped wildly against the projector!
A recent estate sale I attended was that of an avid photographer and cinematographer. I found a little collection to bring home for the etsy shop.
A must have for any film lover, a film reel in its original box.
The 'can' to store your reel.
And, the cutest little slide viewer EVER! An Argus previewer that *still* lights up in its original box. Someone could totally place one of their fave slides in this when company is coming and place it on an end table for show. What a conversation piece it would be. Or maybe some sort of small instillation with several in a grouping on a wall. Wouldn't that look cool all lit up with your fave slides in them?!
Let's talk DIY decor y'all. What would you do with these film items if you had them...discuss!
An unusual find for sure! I like the look of old cameras but have never picked one up. Sorry!ReplyDelete
Fantastic finds! I don't have any camera equipment, but my daughter does. While majoring in photography, she collected quite a few vintage cameras and displayed them (before toddler boys) with vintage swung glass vases.ReplyDelete
Such a small world....I have that exact slide viewer that belonged to my parents. Mine has the original blue outer box too. It's such a pretty colour. I have ours on display in our lounge room, along with my camera collection.ReplyDelete
I think the reel and box would be great decor for a movie room.ReplyDelete
So cute Rachael! That's neat that they all came in the original boxes!ReplyDelete
