My Newest Thrifty Treasure

13 June 2012 9 Comments

This might seem like a bit of a random purchase.  I mean who really needs a projector?  Well, I guess I don’t need it but when I saw it at my local Value Village I couldn’t pass it up.  It’s just too cool.  I figure it will eventually sit in a cabinet in our office or on top of a giant pile of books somewhere.  And if you ask me $12.99 isn’t a bad price for a conversation piece.  Did I mention it actually works?  I love the way it sounds.  That hum reminds me of elementary school.  For now though, it’s been acting as an exceptionally cheap and photogenic model for me to photograph.Semimatic 1Semimatic 2Semimatic 9Semimatic 3Semimatic 4Semimatic 5Semimatic 6Semimatic 7Semimatic 8You know how much I love taking pictures of old stuff. I was in my glory for this make shift photo shoot in my kitchen.  I’ll be sure to update you when I find a permanent home for my newest find.diana

    That is an amazing find! (and what a deal!)I love finding old photography/filming equipment. So far I’ve only acquired a Polaroid One Step and a Super 8 camcorder but I am always on the lookout for more so consider me jealous!

    You should totally sell prints of your vintage photography! I love the ones you took, especially the first two.

    [...] pays $19.99 for an obsolete piece of office equipment?  I do.  I have a weakness for old electronics.  I don’t know why, but I just can’t say no. So when I stumbled upon an 80’s style [...]
