I feel Like it has been forever since I have gotten out treasure hunting ... I tell you It can really take your mind off life's
little not so little stresses. Even if you don't find anything ... the hunt is a great distraction.
So back to the finds ... I found this really cool certificate from the 1920's. It belonged to a medical student from the University of London. This will fit in nice with Nathans old apothecary bottles.
Next ...the cases. I have been trying to find cases like these for a long time. I hardly ever see them ... but when I do ,they are way to expensive.
The very nice gentleman there sold me the 2 large ones for way less than I have seen just one priced at.
And he threw the little one in for free ...cause he said he was glad they were going to a good home, were they would be appreciated. He was right.
The camera . Nathan Is the one that always spots all the neat cameras. I really like the look of this one , it is marked 1910 ... it is over a hundred years old. This little piece really adds plenty of nostalgia to a space.
In case your not familiar with these old cameras ... the front accordion looking part squashes up inside the case and closes completely up. Yes squashes up is the technical term I have chosen here :)
Last but not least ... CHEAP.
Nathan and I spent under 100.00 on our day out ... that includes the Framed certificate,camera, all 3 cases and lunch for two :)
We usually don't spend that on a day out ... but it has been a while and we found such great stuff.
By the way, speaking of cameras ...I need help finding a new one...if any of you know where and or what type of camera I could purchase that would give me better quality photos than what my current camera is taking (its a junk camera) , I would appreciate your input. I am looking for something easy to use that has professional quality photos that isn't very costly.
