Typewriter Love!

Have you ever seen the Sundance Catalog? Robert Redford has something to do with it which is totally besides the point...But they feature a Vintage/Antique section that I love to look at. Recently, they started offering Antique Typewriters (never used mint condition) for a hefty sum of $695.00! I fell in love with this one. Isn't it charming? Sundance reports: "The legendary Ernest Hemingway kept a 1930s Royal Quiet Den Luxe—just like this one—on his desk in Key West."

So I thought I'd check out ebay. And guess who's the winning bidder on this same exact typewriter? Meeee! It's gently used, needs new ribbon...but I paid $31.00 plus shipping is $27.00! And this my friends, is why I am an ebay junkie.

The fonts on those old machines are great. You can incorporate that into artwork and backgrounds nicely.

Check out the free list on Craig's list, and Freestyle also. Lots of retro gems on there.
