About

We specialize in selling working camera models that take modern film and can still be shot with today, and decorative styles in unusually excellent condition, or rare models. Our initial camera lot purchase exposed us to hundreds of models from all over the world spanning 100 years, and we learned quickly which ones were still possible to shoot with. We frequent camera conventions, estate sales, thrift stores and more to continue gleaning the best vintage + antique camera models the southwest has to offer. Etsy has given us the opportunity to work with customers from all over the world, with both established artists + beginning photographers buying their first film camera. We hope you'll find that perfect item in our store. Thanks for stopping by!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Currently we accept Etsy Direct Checkout. Payment must be received within 5 days of purchase.
Shipping
Our items almost always ship within 1-3 days of purchase, barring holidays and weekends. We mostly ship USPS Priority mail. Cameras are precious cargo so your items receive special handling and will arrive (generally) within 2-3 business days, for US orders. Your international packages should arrive within 7-14 days (for priority mail), first class international takes a bit longer and varies due to location. If you are interested in buying insurance, please either let us know at time of sale, or purchase through our main page, where a listing is usually available. We ship using a reliable service but suggest adding insurance on orders over $100.00 as a precaution.

*Note; as of 2013 we will be shipping many of our items at or below $50 using First Class Mail for international orders. This is a slower service than Priority Mail, but due to recent shipping price hikes and requests from overseas customers, we are starting to use this more affordable service. If you would like to use only Priority mail for your item, please contact us prior to purchase. Shipping method is used is described at end of each listing.

We combine shipping! Please message us at time of purchase, either before or after. We can than accurately calculate combined shipping and we will refund you the extra.

Any Customs costs are the responsibility of the buyer. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms, and will be marked as "merchandise" - no exceptions. All film shipped internationally will be prominently labeled "Photographic Film-- Do Not X-ray".
Refunds and Exchanges
Unless otherwise noted as a decorative or for-repair model, all items are in working order and are described as honestly as possible. Everything we sell has been hand picked. All cameras are inspected for basic functioning and are carefully cleaned inside and out. Units requiring batteries (flashes, newer SLRs) have all been tested for proper start up before sale, unless noted. Any dings or cosmetic wear will be disclosed in listing. All leather goods/accessories are also conditioned before resale. Everything possible is done to ensure you receive a functional vintage camera. As a general rule, we do not issue refunds or accept exchanges, although we are more than willing to make exceptions in certain circumstances. If you feel you have received an item significantly different than was described in listing, please let us know immediately. If you have questions about any item in the shop just shoot us a message and we will do our best to answer them. Some items are firmly sold "as-is", which includes our film, do to its consumable nature, and display cameras, which are sold non-functioning for display only.

Goods are packed securely and safely using professional packing materials and we are not responsible for shipments lost or damaged in mail.
Additional policies and FAQs
We ship using recycled packing materials- bubble wrap, peanuts, air packs, etc.
