I found this typewriter at a school yard sale a few months ago. It cost me 2 bucks!

I haven't done much with it yet- it's sitting on the old school desk in my bedroom surrounded by beloved antique books, like my collection of Louisa May Alcott books. There's also some knick-knacks around it but I'd like to find a way to show if off more.

piecesofthepast writes: I just found two typewriters today...one was $2.00 and the other was $5.00. I snapped them both up as they were excellant bargains. I normally rip off the keys for my jewelry, but I had someone once tell me that they put theirs out on a table on their front porch with a blank piece of paper in it and a sign posted "If I'm not here, type me a message". She was stunned at how many people would drop by just to type a little something! I thought that was kind of a cute idea and I just may try it with one of these. In a world of email, maybe a nice old fashioned message on a typewriter may be nice! Posted: 8:48 pm on June 5th

Take care,
