Yard Sale Gold

I went yardsaleing this weekend and found a couple of fun things. More vintage buttons to add to the collection. All I could think about was how I need to learn to knit so I can use these in greater numbers.

I also found a Kodak Duaflex camera. I was pretty excited about this one. I have been occasionally scanning ebay and crag's list for one then it appeared at a yard sale. I had a great conversation with the man selling it about what I was going to do with it. I hope he keeps the other one.

Basically, these cameras have glass at the top for previewing the image. You can photograph the top glass with your digital camera and get an interesting image. I had to make a contraption out of cardboard to keep the reflections to a minimum - so if I go outside with it I will probably get some looks. It reminds me of the Holga's and other toy cameras I used to use but this time no film! People on flicker an the web are calling this 'Through the Viewfinder".

What a successful yard sale day! I love when I find something at a sale that I have been looking for. It's such a cool surprise! =)
