    In addition to my book heist, I found a Cabin light panel at a local electronics store... Got the AC adapter hooked up to it and am looking forward to not having to haul out a huge X-ray lightbox every time I want to review negatives and slides.

    $100 for a nearly mint Nikon F100. Apparently only 5 rolls through it, and then the owner went digital. Sat in the closet for years.

    I just need to find a bottom plug for the vertical grip connector port and it will be complete. It even came with the eyepiece cover in place.

    The metering switch was stuck on "matrix" regardless of position, but now it seems to be functional after some fidgeting. It still flickers between center and matrix, but spot is working.

    A like-new-in-box Oriental Seagull VC-CLS cold light head for my Beseler 45m-series enlarger. A guy was giving away his very large and comprehensive darkroom. He had a bunch of other stuff I'd have loved to take as well, but my darkroom is only 7' x 8' with a 6'3"-ish ceiling. And it's already stuffed to the gills.

    I bought a Voigtlander folder. I wanted it primarily for the lens but no worries... I'll store the camera safely in case I want to reunite it to the lens.

    Some Kentmere 135 film in Spain on my last holiday, It has such a nice grain structure, I may make it my next go to film, instead of FP4+.

    An Ica Icarette model A.

    I was going to buy some Agfa Vista + film on Saturday but Poundland in Lincoln has run out. Hope it is only a temporary glitch, I can't really afford to buy Ilford or Adox films - or, at least, not as many as I like to use.

    2 1 liter bottles of Kodak HC-110.
    Never used this developer before but for some reason it was being sold for $17.99 a bottle, 1/2 of regular price.
    As it keeps forever I thought it would be nice to have on hand in case I run out of my regular developer.
