It's coming up on Sunday. Be there. Aloha.
Damn, I kept thinking today was the day, but had stuff to do, so never checked (which is probably a good thing).
Anyone get any cool toys?
I went and didn't buy anything! Wow! There was a lovely black Pentax ME Super that was calling my name, but I resisted :)
You just don't see the black ones very much.
This time I remembered to bring the list. Believe it or not, I conquered GAS for a day and stuck to it, buying only filters needed to fill holes in the inventory. With 7 different diameters and a bunch of different types to get, and after pawing through boxes of filters, I went home with only 5. Scored a bulk loader for $1. Backed away from a baby speed kit with case, holders, 23 back, flash, and some bulbs that looked in really great shape for a nice price. It's been in the back of my mind to get one as a step toward large format...
The guy that sold Loastyle17 a nice darkroom set (w/ older 23c) for $10 was there again. He said that now he wished he never sold it because a month later his own enlarger died. There was a couple in their 80's that I felt kind of bad for. They got a table to try and sell a really nice Hasselblad set with lots of optional parts and lenses. He must have paid a fortune for it 30-40 years ago and was not in touch with just how drastically prices for film gear has fallen and was looking pretty disappointed. I saw one guy being pretty rude to them about the price.
I saw that baby Speed as well. That guy always has very fair prices for good gear. I resisted, however. I still love my 4x5 Speed Graphic.
Sorry I missed you again!
