Well Here We Are Again. The Earth Has Made It's Way 'Round That Fireball Once Again And Mr. Modtomic Turns THREE!!! I Promised Changes A Few Weeks Ago And Today Begins The First Round. Let It BEGIN!!! Status: It's Begun.
Yes...I KNOW! It's hard to believe that I've been able to churn out post after post for three years, but really...where has the time gone?! It really doesn't seem like it's been that long. But alas, you have to admit...it has gotten a little monotonous: "Hey, look at this chair I found...Hey, look at this table I found...Hey, look at these dishes I found...". So without further ado I present the first two new blogcasters to join me here on Mr. Modtomic! Meet Hannah and Nick.
Meh, whatever...they've both got posts today introducing themselves! Wanna see a cool
vintage Polaroid camera I found? That's what I thought!
This Polaroid SX 70 is one of the few items I managed to harvest from the Belleville flea last
Saturday. It wasn't an epic score haul flea market day, but I managed to salvage the trip by
finding a few choice items. This is the second SX 70 in this color, with leather case that I've
found at a flea market. If you're interested, one of the pair will soon be available @ my
booth (#5) in The Green Shag Market. I can't attest that any of my vintage cameras
work...you know, for actual picture takin'...but they certainly are easy on the eyes and
display quite nicely.
I can still vaguely recall family pictures being taken with a Polaroid camera similar to this
as a child. I know I've got a Polaroid of my sister on our fridge so we musta had one. I know
there's a shop around town (I wanna say it's on Cherokee st.) that can supply the "film"
cartridges for these old gems. I keep meaning to get down there and check it out but I just
never seem to have the time! Hopefully, with a team of blogcasters helping me out I might
be able to get some different things done! Make sure you leave Nick and Hannah a nice
"hello" on their respective introductions. I'm sure they'll appreciate it!
