I have been trying to find a good local source of inexpensive vintage lenses and have yet to find one. So I thought about starting a thread on everyone's favorite place to shop (if you don't mind sharing your secret). I am aware of various online sites, but sometimes you to be able to touch and feel first and to find that rare gem, so please limit it brick and mortar stores.

Please post

  • What region you are in (e.g. name of closest big city)
  • The name and location of your favorite source for vintage lenses.
  • Any descriptions of the store would be nice such has selection, price range, general review, etc..

Raleigh/Durham NC

Craigslist, facebook marketplace, Ebay,  theres a few good camera stores around that have lots of old glass and random stuff that shows up on trade.
