Pottery Barn – Found Camera

I love these cameras from Pottery Barn. They call them “found cameras”, lovely vintage collectibles. They sell for $149 each.


My mom and I were looking through her garage for picture frames over the summer and we found this:


It was my grandpa’s camera, and even has the cool leather case attached. Eat your heart out, Pottery Barn. I just saved myself $149.

    I have not seen the "found cameras" at PB yet but I have a few too as well as an old set of binoculars that I have been thinking about displaying. And better yet ours will have great memories attached and no price tags. Thanks for the heads up on a new trend.

    Good for you!

    Don’t you just love it when you can beat a store out of a sale?

    They are supremely overpriced! Look on eBay for these cameras, and you can get them for about $50 (look for 'Kiev', 'Zorki' 'FED' and you'll see). And don't expect them to be reliable – Russian 'quality control' at the time they were made was certainly not Leica standard. Pottery Barn probably bought these by the pound, and are selling them at inflated prices to people who don't know any better.
