Kodak Brownie? Thrifted.

A couple of nights ago, we went down to one of our favorite Goodwill stores for a little thrifting date. Usually Scott goes straight to the electronics and I go straight to the clothing racks.

I found a few things I liked, met up with Scott, and we started perusing the fancy items behind the glass case. And then this beauty entered my field of vision. It was love at first sight.

I have no idea if it works, don't know if film exists/where I would get it, but gosh, isn't it beautiful?

I know loving vintage things is uber popular right now, but let me just tell you: I love old stuff regardless of how trendy it is. I love how unique and fun each vintage piece is. Finding these things fills me to the brim with warm fuzzies.

Also, can I just express for a second how wonderful natural light is? OBSESSED.

Have you had any thrifting successes lately?

Oh! This is really a goodie! I wish I had found something like this myself at a thrift store. But I shouldn't complain, I guess. I just made a scoop on a vintage SRL and found some beautiful children's books at the Salvation Army's thrift store near my home town - AND a nice coffe cup!
