@ampen87:  Have you tried Adhuntr? It lists all the Craigslist ads in one site.

I think you are likely to find more reasonable prices at garage sales, where people sell them because they don’t really want to be bothered finding how much they are worth.

Thrift shops, antique malls?

What is your price range? I collect vintage cameras, so I can attest that there is a lot of interest in them right now, so princes can reflect that. I have found the best luck on ebay, but that is because thrift stores in my area are regularly scrounged for cameras, and know they can get a good price for them. You might have more luck in your area! One tip for Ebay is to look for lots of multiple cameras, and ones that are sold “as parts” (unless you want them to work). I just checked, there is about a page of cameras labeled “vintage” that are under $10. Also, some cameras are going to be cheaper, because there is less demand, so see if you can spot trends for which are generally listed for less (example, you can usually find a Argoflex 75 for less than $20, but the adorable Hawkeye Rainbow folding cameras are usually always over $100) Finally, Goodwill does have a website you can buy things from, although I have had limited success with it. Good luck, I think that is an awesome way to decorate!
