Maybe because I was a journalist. That I always have loved to write: I have a thing for typewriters.
I think the rest of the world has too. My typewriters have all flown out off Etsy, some sooner, some later. And I have shipped them all over the world.
Here are some beauties:
A Baby Hermes that was so beautiful it almost hurt to send it all the way to China.
Oh, that mint colour...
Erika- a German typewriter that took the trip to Australia. It was so heavy, you won't believe it.
I love the cream colour.
This turqouise Olivetti went to Sarah in the US who also bought some brown mugs to go with it. She sent me an ambience report back that she listened to music, cleaned the old typewriter and drank coffee from Arabia mugs. That sounds so cozy!
This rather "new" Brother typewriter also took the trip to the US, just before Christmas. It was a gift, and it reached there in the end.
Now I have two typewriters still in my shop.
The Diplomat typewriter is from the same manufacturer as the Olympia, I love the elegant hand written label.
And this heavy Rheinmetall one from Germany.
It's old - 1940s, and I just love this warm burgundy colour.
I wonder where these will end up! Linking up to The Nifty Thrifty this week:)
I'm back, and I will post regurarly about vintage finds and life in the Arctic...no spring yet here. Actually we have a second winter coming with heavy snowfall.
