**PLEASE Read the Entire description. It will answer most questions :)
***I cannot Rush orders, but I do use Priority Shipping if the weight is over 16 ounces, otherwise I use usps first class. ** I sometimes reuse shipping boxes that are in good condition to be more eco-friendly.
Here's how this works:
You will receive 1 vintage camera dating anywhere from the 1900's to the 1980's that I will chose for you from my collection. It will be in good condition for it's age with some minor wear possibly, but I like that because I know that tells a story of it being used...and I love the mystery of what photos it must have taken. This listing is meant to be fun and exciting!
Each camera will come with a bit of info about the camera such as the years it was produced, where it was made and what kind of film it takes (provided that I have that info...which I usually do). And if I know anything about the previous owner (sometimes I do because I buy some from estate sales), I will include that info.
I DO NOT know if the cameras work as I have no film to test them, but I will send one that seems to be in good condition. These cameras are NOT perfect and may have some scratches or a small nick due to their age, but I will not send anything that I would not put on display in my home, and please feel free to ask as many question as you like. Some of the cameras may come with the original box or extra pieces such as a wrist strap, flash, case or lens, instruction manual, etc. Please read the feedback that people were kind enough to leave on this listing to help you decide if this may be right for you.
I have a great selection to chose from as I have been collecting and buying estates for a many years! Some of the cameras that I have are duplicates where the originals sold for equal or greater value of the price in this listing. Value is based on what I have sold a camera for; a price guide can give you an idea of what one is worth, but seeing what it sells for is far more accurate because I have found that an item is only worth what someone will pay for it.
If you request a camera from the year that someone was born, please know that most cameras were not made during 1 single year, but rather were in production for several years.
**Please do not buy this item if you are hoping that I will mistakenly send a super high end and very expensive camera by mistake. This is meant to be cool and fun and I have some great old cameras to choose from.
Please feel free (in a note at the time of purchase) to describe the person that this may be a gift for, (even if it’s yourself); this info really helps me choose! You can also tell me what cameras the recipient already has so I don’t send a duplicate.
I do Not take requests for a specific camera. I will do my best to select something to match the recipient and if you have any preferences I will take them into consideration when I chose one, but I cannot guarantee that I can fulfill your wish so please make sure you are comfortable with me choosing an item for you as there are NO returns OR exchanges on this item due to the age of the cameras.
My cameras are all stored in a dry, clean, moisture free area.
This would make a really fun gift for a photography buff or a camera collector! It's a great way to inspire a young person who may be starting to show an interest in photography!

If I could give this item and seller 1,000,000,000 stars I would! That's how much thought and effort Jean puts into finding the perfect camera! I got this for my boyfriend for Valentine's (so an update with a picture will come after- he has Etsy- I give it to him). I told Jean that he loves taking photos of storms. She did thorough research and not only sent me the perfect camera for that but also a perfect camera for a journalist on the 1950's, which he also is, today! What an excellent surprise!! If you even have ONE doubt about purchasing, FORGET IT!!! You WILL NOT regret this experience. Best part is, I had some film laying around....it works!!! THANK YOU JEAN!!
I couldn't be happier with this purchase! This seller is responsive, friendly, and went above and beyond my expectations of service. My 12-year-old son ordered a vintage camera (using my account) and the seller was interested in what types of cameras he likes so she could match him with the camera he would like the most. She communicated any possible "issues" with the camera ... it IS vintage, after all ... but the camera we received was perfect! Vintage, of course, but everything works and it's in great shape. My son LOVES it and has it proudly displayed as the centerpiece of his collection. The camera came with a kind note and an explanation of the collection the camera came from. It also arrived sooner than we expected. I would absolutely purchase from this seller again!
What a neat idea! The mystery of it was exciting. I recieved a Kodak Instamatic 100 which was exactly what I wanted. I was actually talking to my dad this morning about wanting to get this camera next. A few hours later, this little guy arrived. I showed it to my dad and it took him down memory lane to when he was at the 1964 New York World's Fair at the Kodak Pavilion, where he bought this camera. A lot of his childhood photos were taken with it. This truly is a treasure and I look forward to buying from this seller again.
Absolutely love the camera! The camera itself is in great condition. After giving the seller information of the collection I already have and what I've been looking for I can tell she really took her time in finding the right camera to send. Seller is very nice and great customer service. Shipping was very quick, especially including it was shipped around the holidays. At first I was set off by the price but I must say it is very well worth it. Beautiful camera, great seller and excellent shipping. Will buy again!
