What's a Daguerreotype? PLUS a 30% OFF End of Summer Sale

What is a daguerreotype
and what is the difference
from an ambrotype?

After doing a little searching I found this website's description:

Daguerreotypes and ambrotypes differ in that daguerreotypes are captured on polished silver, making the image reflective, like a mirror. Ambrotypes use a photographic emulsion coated on glass; therefore the image did not have a mirror-like reflection. Ambrotypes were also much less expensive to produce than daguerreotypes.

There is a lot more to this process than I thought. Very scientific in fact. How we take for granted when we "click" a button on our digital cameras.

What  I do know is...someone else had to pave a pathway before us  or else we wouldn't be where we are in the "journey."

And that my friends, is my philosophical thought for the week.

NOW for my sales gal mind! I'm offering an
END OF SUMMER online sale.  Two ways to save!

 Spend $75 or more and get 30% off!
This includes items already reduced or placed in my FLEA BELLA category.


Spend 25.00 or less and save 15%

Sale going on now until 8/31.

Enjoy the day!

What a great sale Jillian! I am preparing to sell some of my vintage jewelry and linens at a sale in our little town. It is so much fun going through pieces I have not looked at in years. Good luck with your sale!
