After much debate at the weekend I decided to get my lazy bum out of bed and go to a few carboot sales. It was a nice morning and I was quite enjoying having my own little outing. I bought a few records for my boyfriend including the jungle book soundtrack, which I thought was awesome! However that is not what made my day but the amazing items pictured above. I managed to get my hands on this amazing fully working 1950's camera above for the grand price of £6, after buying the box camera at the vintage fair I was excited to find this. It even came with it's case and instructions, it's beautiful, vintage and nostalgic and I'm in love with it. I can't wait to purchase some film and use this along with my other 1950's camera. I also bought a victorian cigar box with a "Hull" label which is where I live so was very pleased to purchase this for a few pounds, along with some 100 year old bottles that also had Hull on. I lastly got all the documents that I've put in the box, which included WW2 ration books, coupons, identity card and a 1960's drivers license. I love anything like this, and one day when I have my own home I hope to have items like this cleverly placed around my house with bright bold quirky furniture! Do you goto carboots and are you ever drawn to items like these? and do any of you use old cameras? I'd love to know!
Much love Natasha x
