Happy Sunday and also Happy Father's day to all those wonderful dads around the world. I do hope you are having a most fabulous weekend and have enjoyed some great thrifting treasures too. Pop over here to see all the lovely finds from last week, I'm especially loving all the vintage crockery finds!
So this week started out a little bit slowly, I found a few cute pieces of crockery, but I think I'd grabbed all the cute dresses last week. But then yesterday, whilst at the tip shop, it was my wonderful hubby who found not only my treasure for the week, but perhaps even the whole year.
The story goes.. My hubby is a wonderful thrifting partner because he loves to check out all the strange things, rummage around, open drawers, cupboards, boxes, whatever he can find. I usually don't take much notice, especially at the tip, because he comes back with the most bizarre bits and pieces, most often old tools. But yesterday I'm so glad he open a little old suitcase that was sitting in the corner because he found this..
He called me over and I expected to see a crazy old hand drill or hammer, but I actually squealed when I realised it was not only a vintage Polaroid camera, but the gorgeous little suitcase contained the original instructions, flash, bulbs and packaging. In my excitement I didn't actually open the camera itself until we got in the car and it was then I realised just how special this find really was.
The camera which is a Polaroid Land Model 104 is in perfect condition and been very well looked after since it was purchased in the mid 1960s. Needless to say I'm overjoyed by this little thrifty treasure and after a little bit of research I've found that I'll be able to get film to fit my wonderful camera, which I can't wait to try out!
So I've been reminded this week, to never miss a thrifting opportunity and look in every box and suitcase you see, because you just never know what you might find.
