Can’t get enough of the Y2K film camera and digicam vibe? We found a hidden warehouse in Bangkok where you can get super affordable vintage cameras starting from under $10 SGD each!
Located about 30 minutes away from the Siam Square city centre in BKK is Lucky Home Samrong, a massive warehouse space filled with all sorts of vintage and pre-loved cameras imported from Japan, all at heavily discounted prices of up to 90% off.

All the items are placed in giant crates, with some displayed on rows and rows of shelves, so you’re probably going to have to have some patience in rifling through all the items to find what you’re looking for. Simply grab an empty basket and shop away!

Digging through all the crates might sound like quite the hassle, but the end is worth it, as you’ll likely be able to snag a vintage camera for as low as under 200 baht (~$7 SGD), compared to the average of at least $50 to $100 in secondhand thrift stores in Singapore. Aside from film cameras and digicams, you can also find a wide variety of camcorders, camera lenses, camera equipment, camera bags and more.
