Today I spent a couple of hours scouring the antique stores of Bayview and Mount Pleasant in the Davisville area of Toronto looking for cheap finds for food photography props, and had some great success! If you spend enough time rummaging through the dark corners of these dust slicked shops and are willing to get a little grimy-handed: there really are some decent finds. With a little help from Rena and her how-to video on this website here you can further oxidize your cheap five dollar finds with just an egg… and a plastic baggie. Add character and tarnish to your heart’s desire, and create some unique pieces for your next food styling/blogging project.
