Oct 2: A basement video rental store, autoharps, adult Happy Meals and more
Basement video store
Someone spent their quarantine building a video rental store in their basement and the details are incredible. Complete with wall-to-wall VHS shelving and a viewing room with the ability to play multiple formats (including laser disc!), this basement build-out has us ultra jealous.
Another film to try
There are some new films and single-use cameras on the market and the sample imagery we've seen is all really beautiful. These motion picture films give really striking color results. See the collection here!
Take a deep dive into the surprisingly rich history of autoharps, including digital synthesized iterations such as the Suzuki Omnichord. Autoharps go as far back as the late 1800s and have been notably played by national treasure, Dolly Parton.
There is a very niche market for vintage horror tapes, with certain titles selling for hundreds of dollars depending on the rarity. This lot on eBay is ending today (10/2/22) and has quite the selection. Read about the interesting world of VHS collecting and why horror is one of the most popular genres to hoard.
