mostly here...the sky is black...dreary...blah !
in the course of 'finding' supplies, i go to flea markets, antique shops, auctions, yard sales..
just about anywhere there may be an old typewriter.
i see a LOT of typewriters.
i've been doing this for years, but it still
amazes me how different they all are.
every brand had it's own design
and within each brand,
the design changed from year to year.
sometimes, i have a hard time
i know...noone wants them...really..
i can buy them at auction for $1 many many times.
really noone wants them..
but sometimes...it's still hard.
so...sometimes...i have to hold on to one for a while,
for a little while...
before i let it go.
when i come accross a better one,
i let it go...
right now on my shelf ...sits this little cutie.
this is a traveling typewriter
it's so little
and to beat that....
it folds in half !!
i just love that !!
so way cool,
the way they used to make things...
look how small it goes !
just love the graphics back then...
this one also has unique keys.
each one has three functions
this was done to eliminate that top row
on the keyboard...
their goal...small, small, small.
they accomplished it !
anyway, this one has received
a reprieve for now...
