Announcement   At Sunshine Vintage Photo we offer found, vernacular photos and original snapshots. Shipping is $2.50 for the first photo. *Additional photos ship FREE in the same envelope*. The price you see listed under each photo includes the $2.50 shipping charge for the first or only photo you purchase. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for shopping at Sunshine Vintage Photo!

Snapshots taken by nonprofessionals 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 web 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

Please note - only one shipping charge. Additional photos ship free in the same envelope.

Each photo is shipped in an individual, acid-free cello bag 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 a too tight bag or envelope with lots of tape.

The photos are then shipped in a rigid cardboard mailer with a tear strip for easy removal from the mailer. Each order will have a tracking number. 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 item listing. Thank you for visiting!

My great aunt drove hot oldsmobile convertibles into her 70s. Terrified her bride club and often was pulled over by the cops (this was in the 40s and 50s). I like to think this is her (or her friend). Thank you! Great photo, great shop.

We choose an acid free cello bag that's larger than the photo and use a minimum of tape. This allows for easy removal of the photo.

The photos are then shipped in a rigid, cardboard mailer with a tear strip. Each order has a tracking number.

Etsy will send you a confirmation email when the item is shipped. The email will include the tracking number. This information enables you to track your item directly to your location.
