Vintage Nostalgia: How these classic pieces can get you your heart’s desire

We all say that time flies but right now, it feels like it zooms and leaves us wondering where all those moments have gone. How many of us automatically think of the ’90s when someone says “ten years ago”? A lot of us do. What we don’t realize is that we’re already a decade and a half into the 21st century until we start longing for the years before.

One of the best indicators that times have changed is technology. Back in the day, technology was not upgraded every other day and we actually got to enjoy them for months and even years.

We’re a nostalgic bunch and sometimes, we are overcome with the desire to hunt down a time machine and travel back when technology moves at a leisurely pace. Fortunately, we don’t have to go through extreme measures to relive those moments. And what’s better than reminiscing the best of those golden years? Having a piece of them to keep.

Freeze your present memories with a snap from the past using these vintage instant cameras.
