When I’m thriting or at antique fairs I normally end up seeking out and buying mostly camera and photography related type items so today I thought I’d share some of my ‘girly thrift’. I know girly might be considered a stereotypical nonexclusive word but I was looking for a broad term that included all the little nick nacks I have around the house for no other reason than they are cute. Anyways, starting off are my retro kitty porcelain salt and pepper shakers and cat figure that I adore.
I am really excited about this post because never in my head did I conceive that this existed, that in the world there was a coke cola camera. Now of course I know of 90’s automatic throw away cameras that are simply branded with the logo (apparently there are ones made to look like the cans too which is pretty cool) but a camera made from recycled coke cola cans blew my mind. My friend Zara gifted to this me last week; a purchase from Cuba for a few pesos she told me, while saying it was the combination of my two favourite things before pulling it out of her bag. Honestly it’s the best present I’ve gotten all year, it’s amazing. Something that I guess hasn’t come up on the blog, is that I am addicted to Coke Cola, no shame but a total fact that I love Coke Cola so this really is two of my favourite things combined. I love what they used for each element to, like the pull tabs being the strap for the camera, it’s all very ingenious. The only disappointment is that is somehow doesn’t actually take photos. However you can use the viewfinder to frame a shot and pull the trigger like a real camera but what happens next is a surprise!
