- Toronto. Hard on the heels of our Spring Fair, we will be hosting our first ever auction OUTSIDE of Toronto. This two day event will be at the Lion’s Club hall in Port Colborne. On auction are many pieces collected by the late father/son team of Bill and John Kantymir. You may have seen Bill or John at our fairs where they had tables filled with unusual cameras, images, and lenses. Many rare and usable items will be auctioned.
We will be holding it on SATURDAY (June 25), and SUNDAY (June 26, 2022) at the Lion’s Club in Port Colborne – free parking and free admission.
This Auction will be simply terrific – rare items and user items for both film and digital folk – photographs, cameras, lenses, accessories, books, and more. Come out and enjoy this event while adding to your collection or user gear!
Everybody is welcome. Sorry, no consignment lots at the door. All lots are the Kantymir collection – really good items, many very rare. First come first serve.
Our first sample lot photos (130+ items) and second lot (now 170+ items with lots from Leitz, and one Zeiss lens) are shown below. Included are some rare Leica collectibles like a Leica II, a Hektor 5cm, special viewers, fat Elmar, etc.
This slide show was compiled with the help of the app Exhibeo 2. We owe a big thanks to Clint for photographing this incredible series of examples. Click on the stereo viewer photo below, then on the lot shown in the upper left and then on any lot icon to see it larger. Your left/right arrows will work to move from one enlarged photo to another. Enjoy!
