{ Vintage Kodak Brownie }

I love photography and cameras, especially my Nikon 70s DSL. I take pictures almost every day! My love for taking pictures and cameras has spured on a new collection, vintage cameras. Not that I needed much help starting a new obsession. Once a collector always a collector.

My son Christopher found this adorable little Brownie Bullet at the flea market recently for a great price of $2!! He thought I would like it for my collection..... well YEAH!!! He's a keeper my son.

I didn't know much about this little camera so I did some research on the internet. The Brownie Bullet was made from 1957 to 1964. It was never sold by Kodak but was made for promotional purposes. Companies gave away the camera for free or in the instance of Campbells soup, you collected soup labels and received a camera. The companies had a "give away" and Kodak gained new customers because they had to buy film and use developing.
My Brownie is a Canadian version. The camera is made out of bakelite. It's small and light and fits in the palm of your hand. I'm so happy to have it in my collection.

I'm also glad that I have a digital camera to take pictures with now. I don't think I could stand waiting for film to be developed any more!
