That 110 cameras are back in style, or at least they're available for sale at Fred Flare and they sell film for them too! In my freshman year in college I was taking a bookmaking class and we had to make either an altered book or a book "in disguise" or something, and I made a spy book camera with a 110 camera hidden inside...mine was much more shitty looking than that sleek plastic version that the link goes to...but I'm glad someone did it!
I see them all the time in thrift stores and I'm always baffled at how many people my age never had one! Or don't even remember them! I mean, they were so cheap and slim and they came in cool colors, and maybe it was because I had a bigger sister or something, but I definitely had like a LOT of these things...turquoise, fuchsia, andI think I actually had a few of those keychain cameras [pictured above]...Mine didn't have cute little stickers with animals on them (I guess unless I put stickers on them) but I'm pretty sure I had like no less than 3 hanging off my backpack...I always liked that the viewfinder is totally just a hollow square of plastic...so REAL!
