Barn Sale!

On the way to Lowe's on Sunday, Chris and I drove past this sale and he said he wanted to stop on the way home. So we pulled over on the way back to do some scrounging.
We are sure glad that we decided to stop.

I found this Keystone 8mm movie camera. It was only $3.00 and it had to go home with me for our collection.

We have a projector and a box of family movies that came from Chris' grandparents. We wonder if this is the kind of camera that Grandpa used.

Chris saw this box behind some stuff that wasn't for sale and pulled this Polaroid bag out.

He opened it up and found a very cool camera inside. He told the lady running the sale that it didn't have a price on it and asked if it was for sale. She said sure, give me $2.00 for it.

Chris really didn't let me look at the camera while we were at the sale. He just closed the box and told the lady "we will take it".

It is a bigger Polaroid than we had ever seen before. It is also really heavy. Not the kind of camera that a blogger would want to carry around all the time.

It packs away flat, but pops open when you want to use it.

Believe it or not there is a new package of film in the camera. It is on #1.

All of this stuff was in the camera bag too. Everything was like brand new. It is all going to go on the shelf with the rest of our collection.

The woman at the sale said that she is going to have a sale every weekend until the weather starts to get bad. Chris wants to go back and dig around some more since we didn't have a lot of time to spend there. We will update you on all of the treasures we find next time.

I have a camera like the Polaroid (two actually). They are very fun to take photographs with. The photos are remarkably good too (at least with the black and white film - I've never tried color).
