It might be a film camera shop, but even if you’re not a photographer, it’s still a really cool place to check out. Here, you’ll find shelves filled with cassette tapes, vinyl records, typewriters, and all sorts of other cool vintage merchandise you rarely see these days.
Otherwise, when it comes to vintage stuff, there’s something lovely about film photography.
