Vintage Camera Treasures

We've been going through boxes that have been packed away for years...my husband came
flying in saying "look what I found, you're going to love it" And sure enough, I LOVE IT
These are small opera glasses, I love the patina on them
And then this camera...oh so cute! A baby Brownie, in perfect condition
It was in its box, with the instructions!
My receipt for this baby was $33, 20 years ago at an antiques shop
in Vail Colorado
And one of these fold up types, in its box, with the instructions!!
(update: I couldn't get it closed, so I came back here to ask anyone
if they knew how to close it...then I read what I wrote...it came
with instructions...lol, I opened up the little book, and there it was,
I would have never figured it out!)
And this makes 3 cameras

Love your 'finds'! Are you going to sell the Baby Brownie camera? If so, would you let me know - or I will bid on Ebay if you list it. Hope all is going well for you and your dear ones. I really want to get down your way and see my dear ones and visit The Cotton Patch! Soon, I hope.

I love old cameras. I recently picked up three at an estate sale for a dollar each. I'm trying HARD not to start another collection, good luck with that! Love the "opera" glasses, too.
