Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
I love your blog!!!! Collecting typers for 10 years and I'm just as obsessed now as when I began, so I can certainly relate to your enthusiasm.
Thanks! I was wondering if this "kid in a candy-store" feel would ever go away. I don't think my wife will be happy to hear that I'll be just as obsessed in 10 years, but I'm sure it could be worse.All I know is that the first antique store I went in was, frankly, auxiliarating. Looking behind every piece of furniture and every corner hoping to find some elusive treasure. Its a really cool feeling!
I'm partial to this one, since I have one like it. I know what you mean about it typing/sounding unlike other machines.
Sweet! She looks like a dream.And no, the kid-in-a-candy-store feeling never does go away, even when it's just some junky JC Penny's typer from the '70s that you find on the curb. Even then you'll be like, "This is the greatest day EVER!"
Haha, Olivander. Yeah, I'm afraid of that (although more for my wife).Those other machines I found at the antique shop last week, while didn't have any initial fancy, they are now in the back of my head, "Can I save them? Can I repair them, if broken? Do I have enough room? Do I really need this $15 for anything else?"I have held off on online shopping, as I always find something that I wouldn't mind having. But, I am still excited about looking at every antique shop, garage sale, salvation army and goodwill around my area to see if I can get lucky!
