Description

Permission graciously was given to use the original pictures and description by etsy shop TomLaurus, who was the original seller of the item.

Circa 1936 – 1939 vintage movie camera. This is a Model A-8 Univex 8MM Cine Camera was made by the Universal Camera Corp of New York and originally retailed for $9.95. Its unique design made it not only the smallest movie camera of its time but the most economical to use. It measures approximately 4 1/8” tall, 3 5/16” wide and 1 ½” thick. It’s attractive. The black frame has classic art deco lines. It’s equipped with an Universal f:5.6 lens.

The camera comes with its original box, guarantee, instructional booklets and a newspaper article touting the great features of the camera.

The camera appears to be complete and in good vintage condition. It seems to be functional although I have not used it with film. This very early Model A-8 camera is considered to be “scare” and is being sold “as is”.

Please remember that the items in Little Secrets Vintage are in fact vintage, and thus are neither new nor in mint condition. While many are in exemplary condition, all were previously loved by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use photos to make your decisions, be sure to ask any questions you may have, and read my policies before buying so you can have a wonderful experience with Little Secrets Vintage.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
If there are additional items (e.g., gift packaging, upgrades, etc.) be sure to add that to your comments section and I will send you and invoice.

I do offer layaway on full price items (on-sale and price reduced items are not eligible for layaway) with a 50% non-refundable deposit. The full amount must be paid within 30 days of the original date of sale. If the full amount is not paid within the 30 days the sale will be cancelled. Layaway deposits are not refundable.

If you live in Texas I will have to charge sales tax. As far as taxes in other states, I honestly have no idea. Etsy seems to be adding it on automatically, even though it was my understanding that micro-businesses didnt charge tax for out of state shipments. If you get charged a sales tax, I'm sorry. It's not me. Etsy is adding it.

Shipping policies

PACKAGING: Please note the following:
With the exception of large items that require special handling, I ship all purchases at no cost to you, my wonderful patrons :-).

Out of respect to our environment, whenever possible I use recycled packaging. If you would prefer gift boxes, please let me know and I will happily use a necklace, ring, bracelet or my signature floral boxes for your purchase. However, please note that some of my larger items simply will not fit in a designer box. If that is the case, and you have requested a gift box, I will let you know and offer you a refund of your purchase.

I ship within 1-5 business days of your purchase. If any delay is anticipated, I will advise you immediately. PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT include insurance; however, I strongly encourage you to consider it. Please note that should you choose to not insure your purchase I am not responsible for it's loss or damage once it leaves my studio.

I will be happy to ship international to all countries; however, the least expensive way to ship is USPS, which is still very expensive. If you would like me to ship to any other country please send me a message before you check out and I will let you know the cost. I can also ship priority and domestic overnight to other countries. If you are interested in this, please let me know and I will see if overnight is available in your area (not always possible to get overnight depending on zip code) and let you know the costs of both choices.

I do not ship international packages as gifts.

FAQs

As often as possible I will include the carat weight on precious stones, as well as the karat weight on gold in the descriptions; however, this will only be when I already have the information from a reliable jeweler. As I am not a jeweler I cannot remove stones from settings to provide carat weights, nor do I have a jewelers scale to provide accurate gold weight.
I have tried to put sizing details in the descriptions; however, if you have any additional questions please drop me a convo.
The items in my shop range from 20 to more than 100 years old. Any cleaning or polishing should be done with great care, and very gently.
