In the summer of 2012, Bob and I went shopping at the Wilmington antique shops. We definitely found some goodies! Near the end of our shopping trip, we stopped in a store called "Paraphernalia Antiques" and saw a ton of Brownie cameras. We were happy about our findings and got a really good deal on two! Then we went into the next side of this mans shop and started looking around. There we found mostly furniture but lo and behold we found a tin Brownie sign! It really was a cool thing to find in a store with mostly furniture. When we asked how much it was, the owner quoted $75. After spending a day of shopping, we decided to wait on it. Fast forward a few months and it brings us to Christmas 2012. This Christmas, I did a "25 days til Christmas " theme. One of the ideas that came to me was this light that we had seen months before. I made a call to the owner, described to him what it was, and he said he DID indeed still have that light! I was so happy that he did. He quoted me $65 and I asked him would he take $50 if I came in the next day to pick it up. He said he would take it! So the next morning I drove out there and picked up the light while talking to the owners mother who also ran the shop. Totally cool to be able to get a glimpse of history of that shop and the owners and the town of Wilmington!

Camera History Project

This website is the culmination of years of antiquing. My wife and I enjoyed travelling around the United States, stopping at various antique shops and finding different cameras. Since 2012, we have collected hundreds of cameras, and there are some that we have, but that have not made it online yet. When the real world slows down, we plan to resume our hobby! Feel free to check out our online collection, and using the comment system, let us know which you've had and which is your favorite!
