Found!

Erin and I had a thrifting date Saturday morning and hit up two of our favorite shops, Funtiques and S.T.D. (haha, right?). Guess who found another set of Santa face mugs with matching pitcher? I left them there for someone else, though.

My find of the day, nay, the year (so far) was this vintage Diana camera. I dropped Erin off at RVA and made one last stop at Victory Vintage and way in the back with lots of nick knacks was this pretty thing. I knew right away it needed to be added to a certain friend's toy camera collection.


Best $1.00 I've spent in awhile.

Rachel

Awesome finds!! STD is one of the best places in the world. Seriously in love with it. Funtiques is on the list too but it's more fun to dig for treasure! ;)

Hey Rach- I went thrifting this weekend and saw a Royal Typewriter on silent auction. All the keys seemed to be functioning, except for the space bar. Do you know if it would be an easy fix to get the space bar working again? I'd love a typewriter but I want to use it so not having a functional spacebar would be bad!

Awesome camera! They used to be 50 cents back in the day. My photo professor has two and talks about them at the beginning of each semester.

I used to live in Springfield for a few years when I went to college but my husband couldn't bear to ever go into S.T.D. fleamarket. We were just laughing about the name just the other day. So funny.
