    Where to buy old or out of date film locally?

    Hey guys. I'm curious, does anybody know where I can find [OLD] film in Vancouver? I've been watching Craigslist for a long time, but film rarely comes up, and the only other place I know of is eBay. But it would be nice to get some locally. Thanks.

    I find it on craigslist sometimes, but more often on the 'bay. I have found local sellers on the 'bay,and lucked into them allowing local pickup.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Don't get down on wanting used film either. I love buying up negatives at estate sales, garage sales, etc. Printing someone elses images from 30-70 years ago I find is fascinating.

    Could a moderator change the title from 'used' to 'old' and hook a brother up?
    Thank you.

    I have 2 bulk loaders that are almost full of old fogged film. 1 has some Tri -X pan safety film and not sure about the other. Some type of Kodak if I remember correctly. I was only using it to show people how to load their own film. The film has been kept in a warm cabinet for a few years so I KNOW it is old. For the safety film I purchased it @ the Swap Meet for $3. Place an advertisement in Craigslist and I am sure you will get responses. Give me $5 for 2 bulk loaders with film included.

    Post ads on your local CL, and newspaper, or shoppers news(remember those). I run the occasional ad for photo gear and have been blessed with some great bargains.
