39th Annual PSPCS Sale, Swap & Show

April 13th 2019 at Kent Commons WA

Our 39th annual PSPCS Sale, Swap & Show of pre-owned, collectible and antique photographica. 

The largest one day Camera Sale, Swap and Show in the Western United States will be held on Saturday April 13th 2019 from 8:30 am to 4 pm at Kent Commons Recreation Center - 525 Fourth Ave North, Kent, Washington. Over 150 six foot tables piled high with digital, antique, “user” and collectable photographica will be displayed or offered for sale or trade by collectors from across the Western United States and Canada. There will be up to twenty-five display tables exhibiting unusual photographic collectables from the collections of Puget Sound Photographic Collectors Society members. The sale/show is sponsored by the Puget Sound Photographic Collectors Society, and the 39th Annual Show is expected to be the best one yet! 

The sale is a virtual cornucopia of all things photographic--literally thousands of photographic items will be offered for sale or trade. Included will be “user” cameras (both digital and film), lenses, accessories for current and collectable cameras, darkroom equipment, instruction manuals, literature and images dating back to the earliest years of photography. Fascinating antique and collectable cameras attract buyers from around the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. The instruments that recorded our history have truly become prized treasures. The Puget Sound Photographic Collectors Society, Inc., organized in 1979, is a non-profit (501(c) 7) group of photography enthusiasts dedicated to encouraging public awareness and appreciation of our photographic heritage. The public is welcome to bring any photographic items they would like to have appraised or to trade or sell. The doors will open to the general public at 10:00 am Saturday April 13, 2019; General admission is $5.00. For the more serious collector, an 8:30 am early admittance can be purchased for $15.00.

2017 Presentation:

Cameras from Charlie Kamerman's Collection

Here is a little about Charlie from his website 


He has been collecting items in original boxes since 1979. His collection contains a wonderful mix of photographic related items representing the evolution of equipment and marketing of the Eastman Kodak Company over 120 years. In the beginning he decided to buy items only if they were in their original boxes to limit the number of items he could acquire. Eventually he decided to buy advertising items to complement the photographic equipment which helped to create more visually pleasing exhibits. To this day he only buys cameras and accessories in original boxes. Parts of his collection of thousands of items, have been exhibited in the California Museum of Photography, the Museum of Science and Industry in Los Angeles, the Seattle Convention Center and the George Eastman House in Rochester.

The presentation is FREE and refreshments will be served.

Friday: April 7th, from 7:00 pm to 9 pm
