my 52Photos capture
I've been on the lookout for a vintage manual typewriter. My in-laws had an old one, but it was electric. It didn't make my heart go pitter-patter but I took it anyway. For some reason, it wasn't working so I returned it, although I think Mr. wRight could have repaired it if I had asked him to. Almost six months later, I decided to stop by an Antique Mall that I pass each time I head home from town. I was quite happy when I found a small glass-domed cheese board, I had been looking for one and it was only $4. Then, much to my surprise, I found a manual typewriter, in a case, AND it appeared to be in very good condition. I asked them to hold it so that I could go home and do a Google search for typewriter ribbons.
I can now say that this $15 beauty is now mine, all mine. Makes me smile, that's for sure.
