Englewood Camera was located in Englewood (big surprise!) for a long time before we located to our Littleton store in the 1980’s. Every once in a while, we stumble across interesting pieces from our past; old mailing labels, old film order envelopes, or customers bringing in gear they purchased. This week, we had a customer bring in a Fujica ST801 single-lens reflex camera with a 50mm f/1.4, original boxes, and…an original sales receipt dated 6/28/1977. After nearly 38 years, this camera came back for resale, and in mint condition! Check out the picture below–the complete set, with Englewood Camera receipt! Pretty cool used purchase this week–it can be yours for $150!
