One of my favorite possessions, a fully functional hot chocolate-colored vintage Remington typewriter, came from this well respected St. Johns shop. The service and atmosphere are a refreshing small town throwback, and the vintage cameras and typewriters for sale are art pieces.
All-around awesome – I was very, very happy with my experience at Blue Moon Camera. I had a weird issue with my film and they were so helpful and accomodating (both on the phone and in person). The shop itself is amazing, they have so many neat old typewriters and vintage camera equipment, it has a real charm. Each employee that I spoke to was very friendly. Their prices are good, and each print looks absolutely beautiful. They are one of the (or THE only?) places in town that isn't doing digital prints. Even my boring photos look ready to frame. They offer lots of services (like cross-processing) and it was totally worth the hour-long bus ride to St. John's! I will be back.
Actual friendly Service, yes. – Obviously most people don't care how their pictures really look, but I do. I don't like digital which has moved into every other photo realm, it will take over completely, but for now Blue Moon is worth the drive to St. Johns. It's further, but easy parking, friendly very knowledgable staff, that lets me decide between analog and ditial prints. They also do 120, Black and White, and E6 Slides. They're probably more costly then the big stores, but well worth it, and the ALWAYS call and leave a message when my photos are done.
