My nine year old is a vintage collector. She has a collection of vintage Breyer horses, 60’s Madame Alexander dolls, and vintage Barbies. Ok, maybe she is a little on the eccentric side for her age. But I think she is totally cool! She always jumps out of bed on the weekends to go to yard sales with me!
She became interested in typewriters a few months back and spent hours researching them on Etsy and E-Bay. They were way too expensive so I told her that if she was lucky she might get one for Christmas. Well, she lost interest in typewriters and I forgot all about it. But lo and behold, I was at the thrift shop a couple of weeks ago at the half off sale and I found this beauty complete with a red case.
Do you know that feeling you get when you find an incredible vintage deal? My hands were a little shaky and my adrenaline was pumping. I felt like someone might come and grab my typewriter from me so I guarded it in the store carefully while I continued to shop.
This 1958 beauty was only 5 dollars with the half off discount and it works perfectly. I won’t even tell you how much they are selling for on Etsy because that would be bragging….(OK I will)….. 450 dollars!!
Isn’t it a beauty?
