film & camera display

Some of you may remember my vintage camera display that I did earlier this year...well I have been wanting to do a similar idea for the traditional film cameras that I use as well.  I knew I wanted something convenient, so it would entice me to bring some of my film cameras along when I leave the house instead of always forgetting them.  I believe I found my solution on my latest thrifting excursion. 

I bought this crate (I think it was a wine crate of some sort, it has a "napa valley" stamp on the back) for a few bucks at my favorite thrift store last week; I put four holes in the back & hung it proudly by the front door. It does the trick perfectly if I do say so myself...

In case you are curious here is the info on the cameras from left to right...
top row: Instax white mini, 35mm slide film (to cross-process), original lomo lc-a (they stopped making them in 2005, but make a similar lc-a+ now), holga 120
second row: instax mini film, mini diana, action sampler camera, colorsplash camera
third row: Polaroid sun 600, Polaroid izone 200 (this takes itsy bitsy polaroid photos, I only have like 15 expired packs of film left), pop 9 camera, & expired polaroid film for my holga back

Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday! I feel like the summer festivities have really kicked in to high gear at the Perry house & I am so excited about all the fun things/adventures that we will be experiencing soon! ♥
