Okay so here’s the lowdown. I found 4 sets of medium format negatives while I was thrift shop hunting a few weeks ago. They were sitting in a box of old vintage photographs in these plastic sleeves, and from what I could tell, they had been taken sometime in the 50’s. So obviously I brought them home, and today finally had them scanned in, and holy wow they are beautiful!!
NOW this is where I need the Internet’s help. I would absolutely love to find the women in these photographs/the photographer who took them. The only info I have is that the negatives were found in a thrift store on Hull St in Richmond, VA. They are medium format, and judging by the style of dress, made in 1940-1950. The owner of the thrift store had no idea where they came from. I’m posting the best/clearest scans of the images, so if y'all could reblog the shit out of this, I’m hoping we can find the owners of these amazing images.
I love Sunbeam! She was the first G1 pony I ever found at a thrift store; at the bottom of a plastic bin full of toys. I was so thrilled to find her, even though she was well loved! My Sunbeam has the letters “APL” written in pink highlighter on her shoulder, and her yellow streaks and glittery cutie mark have almost completely faded away. She’s the grandma of my herd, and one of my favorites!
That moment when you’ve been searching to buy an army camouflage jacket and after a month of searching, God blesses you with one.
A black business was selling one for $70 because it was going to be customized. Ebay and Etsy were selling some between $25 - $40. But after going to four different thrift stores, I found mine for $5!
Before I went to fourth and final thrift store, I literally prayed before entering. Then I looked to my left and my beautiful jacket was right there, like it was waiting for my arrival. To top it all off, it literally fits like a glove.
“I stopped shopping retail years ago, so thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales have largely shaped my personal style. I like for my looks to always have a playful twist, for them to be on the verge of ridiculous and costumey, but not quite there. I love dressing monochromatically and as of late cannot stop wearing all red. Here I’m wearing a thrifted kilt-like skirt paired with vintage booties I got at a vintage expo in LA, a faux-fur trim coat I found years ago at a thrift store in San Diego, and of course, my matching red wool hat and red sunglasses.”
