{vintage} black friday no. 3

this black hatbox is vintage black perfection, in my eyes...it is worn but very sturdy and has a lovely old ivory interior.

the worn spots and scratches only make it more appealing

i'm truly bursting with joy over these gorgeous old cameras! i found all three waiting for me in a glass display case at a local thrift store...for only 5.99 each! i don't know if that price was a steal or a rip-off, in fact. but to me, it was worth every penny - i've wanted a couple of these for some time - but just never ran across any. and really, isn't that the question: what is this worth to me?

and here's a "photography" quote i really like:
All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice. - Elliott Erwitt
i just love simple truths:)

Old hat boxes are best, love the simplicity of your vintage black one ... the cameras are wonderful!! I found my cameras at a flea market and paid $15 for three ... so if you got ripped off, so did I! ; )

Happy VBF!!
