Thumbs down our last camera shop is closing monday

Our camera shop is closing monday, he's still got a little leica stuff left...

some great signage, a leitz steiff bear, a 35-70 elmar r, rom, a black leica meter mr-2, lots of various hoods and filters --- 2 21mm black brightline finders, a leica motor, a few leica grips, lots of old leica books, literature, display stands, a leica d-lux 1, and a little bit more -- some darkroom stuff, various knick knacks- --

the phone number to call tomorrow is: (901) 767-2702, ask for buzzy.

https://www.facebook.com/buzzy.boehme his facebook profile is here -- shoot him a link =-- they're open today till 6p cst. and tomorrow 10-5 ---

there's some great stuff for the right people -- sad to see them go -- we have no camera stores left in our town, mail ordering for film stocks, a few individuals process film, 1 pro lab does processing - for now...

Memphis Photo Supply was a good store and Buzzy is a good man. Five years ago I was in the position that he's in now. I was lucky that I was able to retire and I hope the same is true for him and his staff.
Working in a professional camera store was the best job in the world. You met and got to know good people and you got to play with the best toys.

I remember going in there many times when I was stationed at NAS Memphis back in the 70's.

Sorry to hear that... Hoping the best for Buzzy and staff.

I would love a couple of display stands..

I like to go to a pro store to handle and check out the new gear and get meaningful opinions.

Then I buy online and save a few $. What will I do now that more and more stores are closing?

Satire of course
