These are nice! I saw one last week in this office warehouse. It's huge and totally vintage. I'm sure you'll love it, I should have photographed it!

Oh, and where do you put all the stuff you thrift? Cos I'm already losing room!

We're already running out of space, with 3 boys I have to keep most of our stuff packed away until they're old enough to realise not everything can be thrown like a ball or jumped on!!!
Yep, I thrifted the aqua one, the Olympia and Adler I found on the street and the cream one is off ebay, my collection cost $35 in total!

Hey girl, guess what? You won the Domino book giveaway! Congrats!! It was amazing to draw your name given we started our blogs the same week and I stole the giveaway idea from you - funny eh? Please send your information to me at Grungequeen@yahoo.com and I'll get that book in the mail. And thanks for being a dedicated follower! K/Grunge Queen xo

$35 total!!! Wow! Impressive. Nice collection, especially at that price. I just bought my first one for $20. I actually learned to type on an antique and was crushed when I found out my mom had given it away! Being a writer and thrifter, you can imagine how much I love typewriters. I've been admiring the orange and red ones on Ebay but they cost so much money. Maybe it's too much to dream that I'll find a cheap one thrifting one day?

Stunning. I heart typewriters too. They are the quintessential sexy for writers - even if only for props rather than usage.
