Make it stop

Found here

"Any film buff would appreciate these as a gift. Plus they are good for so much more than watching! Search Pinterest for inspiration.
The metal film reels make trendy wall decor or repurpose it into a clock. The canisters can be re-used as cool, retro storage. The film itself I have seen be made into jewelry, lamp shades, and more. "

It makes you want to spew!

"Buy 10 meters of 35 mm and give as a present"
What a load of bollocks,you spend years trying to treat film with the respect it deserves and then some plonker decides let's make a few bob selling it to be made into crap.
Very sad film is for projecting and watching.📽📽

I wouldn't mind if the stuff was unsalvageable but most of these things (necklaces made of super8 film, clocks made of spools etc.) looks like it would've run ok if it hadn't been "upcycled"

I've bought three films off of this website (intact of course). Still have two of them. :-)

Vidar, you wouldn't like to own a projector table lamp? LOL! Me neither. :-)

Yeah, Etsy can be a good place to find things outside of eBay. You get a few people posting films there and most don't know what they are worth. Sometimes this means they are at the stratospheric eBay prices but sometimes it is cheap
