TTT Week 41 – Vintage Brownie Hawkeye Flash Outfit

For the next few months I am changing up TTT since I have limited thrifting time during the summer months.  Instead of showing you a lot of thrifted items I will be highlighting a special vintage find each week.

 Do you remember last year when  I discovered  A New Way of Thrifting online with ShopGoodwill?  Recently, I looked at a few items up for auction at ShopGoodwill and found this Kodak Brownie Hawkeye flash outfit.

TTT Week 41 title

  Luckily, I won the auction.  The camera outfit arrived last week and I couldn’t be happier.  This adorable little camera is not going to the booth but is an addition to my growing vintage camera collection.  I know, I have too many collections.

Hawkeye Flash Outfit

All the camera and accessories arrived in the original battered and taped box.

Brownie Flash Camera

The box held the camera, flash bar, instructions, battery box, 2-way flashguards, a roll of film, and flash bulbs.

Brownie Flash Camera 2

Considering their age the camera and accessories are in amazing condition.

Instruction Booklets

The box included two instruction booklets and

Undeveloped Film Brownie

a roll of unused film that is decades past its expiration date.

Flashguard

These little plastic hoods are protectors to place over the flash attachment to make safer and more pleasing photos at least according to the wrapper.  See the statements on the 2-way flashguard wrapper.

Kodalite Flasholder

The flash hood gives advise to the photographer for proper use of the camera and flash attachment.

T Checking it out

My grandson is demonstrating the viewfinder on the top of the camera.   He finds it quite intriguing.

  1. Great find! My son loves vintage cameras and I found him a polaroid and a super 8 at estate sales 😉

  2. Sharon, I am looking forward to seeing this camera in one of your vignettes. I love you found a complete set with the box.

    Sharon, it’s a real beauty! Love the graphics on the box. I have too many collections as well. Cameras is one of them. lol! I don’t have a Brownie and I really am out of room on my shelf that they are displayed on. Still, if I ran across one I would not be able to resist it. My favorite one I have has an accordion front. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs
