Monthly Events: Winter Bliss in December


The holidays are here! Time to bust out a camera to photograph everything from catching snowflakes on your tongue, to ice skating, to being accidentally left at home for the holidays TWICE (we’re looking at you, McAllister family). Instead of being bored at home, come out to our cozy gallery store for some great winter activities!

To spread the joy of the holiday season we’re opening up our camera rentals for the entire month of December! We want everyone to see why we love these cameras, and spread some holiday cheer. It’s just $10 to borrow any plastic camera for the day! We’ll even throw in a free roll of film! Please be prepared to leave a valid credit card or state issued ID with us for the day, and be sure to return by 6:30pm. Happy Holidays from us to you!

Be on the lookout for Holiday deals!
We’re bringing back the advent sale calendar this year, so be sure to check your email, Facebook and Twitter for these 1 day only sales. You could even win a shiny new Diana F+ for our holiday raffle, by just stopping by the store! And we have some great bundles, already set and ready to go. We will help take away the pain of finding the perfect gift, and save you some money in the process.

Sunday November 15th @ 2pm – Holiday Photo Walk with the La Sardina!*
