My New Favourite

Scratch the jars, I've bought something better! While rummaging around at a car boot sale this morning, I picked up this fantastic camera. It's a Coronet 4-4 mark 2, or something, but more importantly really pretty! And it has an awesome rubber case that imitates the brown leather cases that these sorts of things used to come in. It's in pretty good nick and the shutter still works and everything, so I'm pretty chuffed!

Does anyone know what film these things take? It looks about the right size for 35mm but I'm no expert on these things. Any help welcome!

PS. In the background there you can see a sneak preview of the new range of leather animal silhouettes in vintage frames, which will be coming available in the shop this week!

No, not yet! I've fun out of film and keep forgetting to buy some. Fingers crossed though, I've cleaned it all up in side and I think we're good to go! In fact I'll get some today! x
