    I was there, and I looked for you Dennis, without success.

    I picked up a stack loader for my Kodak slide projector ($10.00) and a working Gralab 300 timer ($15.00).

    What fascinated me was a box of old Agfa photographic paper. Of particular interest to me were the price tags on some of it - they were Rushant Camera price tags. Rushant Cameras did business near UBC for decades - probably at least 50 years.

    I worked for Rushant Cameras in the 1970s when I attended UBC. I purchased my Mamiya C330 from them while I worked there, and I still have it, and use it.

    Oh, and there is a tiny chance that I might even have originally sold that paper I saw on the weekend, because the price tag, for 10 8x10 sheets in an unopened package was $1.90!!!

    I'm kicking myself that I didn't pick up at least one package, for the sake of history.

    Matt

    Yes I saw that. There was alot of people there so we might have been there @ the same time. I pickd up a new flash, a camera strap and a MA power winder for my Canon. The majorirty of the stuff was 35mm. only 1 table had MF (he had many). Did you see the ULF cameras by the coffe bar ?? I took his card. Hey you never know !!

    I got a kick out of the swap me about 5 years ago - I brought my camera with me, and so many people expressed delight and surprise to see an LX around the neck of a 22 year old.
