Film photographers love to show that they love film, sort of like sticking up a certain finger to the all-digital crowd. So, we love t-shirts, hats, pins, stickers, etc. to show off our passion about film. I have put together a short list of small businesses that cater to EXACTLY people like me. And you, if you are another analog camera user.

I am a fan of the Asilda Store, as the small enamel pins sold featuring cameras and slogans are really well-made, subtle, and classy. The pins are wonderful small gifts for any photographer. They look good on a lapel, camera strap, or hat. Asilda also sells photography-themed patches. I found their prices to be very reasonable, so check them out!
Nick Mayo, out in western Michigan, started up Two Stops Apparel this year. I like his choice of items, and I am sure that he will continue to produce humorous and well-appreciated t-shirts, etc. for us folks. As illustrated by T. Paul Wrobel, if you wear this shirt, you will never forget the order in which to process your roll of film.

The Film Photography Project Store also has a number of stickers, as well as a classy T-shirt that photographers will like -- and their prices are very good. You may also want to check out some of the films and other items that are offered. Nothing beats a few rolls of film in the stocking!
Photo Jojo that cater to all photographers, and you will find something if you just Google it! I like to support these smaller businesses, and they produce quality products, and their niche fits in with those of us already in a niche - analog photography.
As for me, I pretty much have all I need, except for that Bronica SQA. Okay I don't really need it, but you know how it is.
