24 Mar

Usually when I’m in Fort Worth on Saturday morning, which hasn’t been very often lately, I go for a walk or jog. Whatever you want to call it. The last two Saturday’s I have done this I have stumbled upon estate sales and have found some very good, and, well interesting finds. Estate sales are weird and wonderful things. It is intersting to walk through someone elses house and see all of their funriture, clothes, nicknacks and the whatnot. However, it’s also a bit sad to know that you are being able to see all of their things because they most likely have died. I always feel a little guilty that I take so much joy in looking through their things, which have now become chic vintage finds in my eye. Well, here are some of my recent finds.
Today I bought this awesome 120mm camera with case, a set of glasses and glass bowls. My other purchase from a few weeks ago is not so practical, but it’s a fun conversational piece for our living room.

    What fun finds! And useful, too. Does the camera work?

    The camera should work, it has all of it’s parts and is in very good condition. Even the case is tip top. The lense is a little dirty, if I could figure out how to clean it that would be cool. The camera is very simple with one f-stop and two speed settings. I’m excited to get some film and play around with it.

    I agree that estate sells are way creepy. And way cool.

    In a creepy sort of way. Sort of like Our Town.

    I love your acquisitions, especially the awesome wall decoration. I also love the fact that I am writing this while signed in on your computer, so it looks like you’re responding to your own comment. Way cool. Sort of like rifling through dead people’s stuff.

    We have a duplex and it is most definitely on one of the walls in our living room.
