Vintage Camera Nightlight - Ansco Cadet II w/flash

    Newer Older

    i'm making a few of these to sell at the craft fair at work.

    they're cameras from the 50's & 60's that i've permanently converted to night lights.
    i've removed the shutter, film transport, and as much extras plastic as possible to make it light enough to stick in a standard outlet.
