Quantcast

Photog seeking props

I’m working on a little side project, more or less some product shots. I’m looking to borrow a few items that I haven’t been able to turn up while thrifting which has been mind boggling seeing as how they are pretty common items. Well, for the most part. I think I should only need these for a day, two tops.

If you have any of the mentioned items it would be suuuuper cool if you emailed me a cell pic; they need to be relatively specific. nlindstromphoto at gmail

 

The list-

 

One scalpel. Must be relatively plain looking, no rust please. Found!

 

 

 

 

 

 

One “vintage” tape recorder. Doesn’t need to work, but decent condition preferred. Super excited to have found this one!

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one is tough: Four glass milk bottles. Must be SQUARE. And cleanish.

 

 

 

 

 

 

One “vintage”  wooden salad bowl, size large. I’m not sure if these were actually made of wood? I just need the big fella. Got it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

A matching set of knife and fork of antique design.  I need something ornate looking, in very good condition. Sourced!

 

 

 

 

 

 

One commercial coffee mug. I can’t believe I can’t find one of these.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long shot is an understatement for this one.  If anyone has a Frogger machine please email me for details. I won’t get lengthy with this one. I won’t get my hopes up either.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I might add a few more items as they come up, thanks for any help!

Have you been creeping around my inlaws basement? I bet they have all but the scalpel. (Do you have any friends who are biology profs?).

Sorry, I should probably add: they live in Cleveland so likely can't help you out.

The flea market in Superior on the South Side of the railyard I forget the name of the street has a sweet old cassette player like that.  They probably have all of the stuff you are looking for.  It's an adventure in and of itself.

Savers also as of yesterday morning had a cassette player like that, and I've seen the salad bowl there from time to time. They also have coffee mugs and silverware always coming and going. Good luck!

I must be hitting these places on the wrong days. Thanks for the help.

Will this cassette recorder work, or is it too "mini-compact"?

 

Complete with Max Dakota tape!

The tape really sweetens the deal, but alas, it is too small.

I've sourced the bowl and flatware. Thanks.

I have a tape recorder if you still need one.

Scalpel is secured. The milk bottles at WFC are too rectangular, unfortunately. Udarnik, would you mind sending me a pic of the recorder when you have a chance? I'm out of town until early next week, so no rush. Thanks to everyone for your help, I really really really appreciate it!

That coffee mug is soooo familiar.  I spent a year or so pouring coffee into it when I waitressed at Coco's restaurant in Omaha in 1983. So just out of curiousity, I looked at eBay.  No Coco's per se, but if you do 'brown restaurant coffee cups', there are some fairly inexpensive cups that look close to what you need. Good luck!

GB Schnieder's in West Duluth uses square milk bottles as water pitchers.

Thanks for the heads up Shane and emmadogs.  I've updated some found items and added a new one. Thanks again!
