Vintage Photo Vintage Snapshot Vernacular Photography Found Photo

Snapshots taken by amateur photographers often result in unexpected details, double exposures, unintended cropping, tilted horizons or the shadow of the photographer. Some of the unplanned compositions can be strikingly beautiful and sophisticated. Or surprisingly funny!

As you browse through our shop, you'll start to see patterns in poses and facial expressions. People liked to hide in the bushes, lean on one another's shoulders and perch on rocks. Vintage photos often feature pride of ownership. Men, women and children pose on cars, front porches and model their new clothes. Backgrounds are often as interesting as the subjects. Many of the towns and cities were no more than an empty street with telephone poles in the distance. These elements are what make viewing and collecting vintage photos so interesting and just plain fun!

Need a gift idea? Take a vintage snapshot, scan it and have it printed on a t-shirt, coffee mug, tote bag….the sky's the limit! You'll find many sites on the internet that provide this service; major chain drugstores, office supply stores or companies that specialize in printing tees, coffee mugs, postage stamps, etc.

Or chose a pretty frame and add a vintage photo from the Victorian era. This makes a lovely gift for someone who appreciates the past. And don't forget the Roaring Twenties! Flapper fashions are fabulous.

Photos of classic and antique cars are great for the guys! They might remind him of the car Grandad used to drive.

Vintage photos can also be used to make unique and fun greeting cards. Give your creative side free rein!

SHIPPING INFO

FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ITEMS. No minimum order.

Each photo is packaged in an individual, acid-free sleeve that's larger than the photo. A minimum of tape is used. This allows for easy removal of the photo. As a collector, I know it's no fun trying to remove a fragile, valuable photo from an envelope with lots of tape.

We are not responsible for lost or damaged photos. Insurance and Priority Mail are available on request.

If I can be of any assistance or if you have any questions, please use the Contact Link on our shop home page or the Ask a Question link on any listing. Thank you for visiting!

About SunshineVintagePhoto

Sales 13,532
On Etsy since 2011

Serendipitous Beginning

Several years ago, I was working on a scrapbooking project and purchased a box of paper ephemera. In the box were vintage ads, handwritten letters, brochures and vintage photos. While I had started out looking for vintage ads, I found I was fascinated by the vintage photos.

The photos were of ordinary people, living ordinary lives. Without conscious effort (usually), they took extraordinary photographs. While subject matter is important, I find accidental composition, light, shadows, mistakes, handwritten notations and the use of color to be more intriguing. These are some of my favorites.

In searching for my own collection, I've run across photos that may interest the casual or serious collector. Please enjoy browsing and feel free to contact me if you are looking for anything in particular.
