1950s REVERE 127 CAMERA
Adrian was beside herself with excitement. Her older sister Kathleen had just told her that she could come along with her friends to see the Beatles land at J.F.K. She only had a few minutes to get ready for the one hour drive up from Jersey. She grabbed her Revere Camera and stashed it in her coat pocket. She just had to get a picture of Paul, she simply had to. The entire way up to the airport, the Rambler wagon reverberated with the sound of six teenage girls singing "I Want to Hold Your Hand" over and over and over again. In between verses they would scream at the top of their lungs.
Once at the airport, they managed to push their way to the front of the crowd just as the Beatle's plane was taxiing on the tarmac. The plane came to a stop right in front of the girls and the frenzied mob of teens began to gush and scream. The door opened and out stepped the "Fab Four". Adrian reached for the camera and set the exposure just before the crowd surged forward and sent her flying under the arms of the policemen who were holding back the crowd. There on the ground propped up by her elbows, Adrian looked up to see Paul and John stepping off the stairs right in front of her. Click, she'd done it...a perfect shot of Paul with John leaning over and yelling into Paul's ear. Adrian heard the words, "Let it be, let it be."

Most items ship within 1-2 business days of a paid order. Items usually ship via USPS or FEDEX Ground. Lighter items usually ship via USPS Priority Mail while heavier items may ship via FEDEX Ground or USPS Parcel Select.

COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNTS-
We offer combined shipping discounts on most items (see shipping costs on each item).

We are happy to ship internationally on most items but realize that heavy and/or bulky items will be very expensive to ship so we may note on an item that international shipping is not available.The most cost-effective means for shipping internationally is by U.S. Postal Service (either First Class or Priority International mail) but tracking is often unavailable for items sent this way. International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way. Should an item be lost in the mail, we will provide you with a copy of the U.S Customs form which is proof that we sent the item. The international buyer will be responsible for contacting their own country's customs/mail officials to trace a lost item's whereabouts. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY OF ITEMS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.
Also note that the international buyer is responsible for any duty or customs fees charged by your country.
