and again...

Oh dear, I was at a church sale last weekend and saw this typewriter for ONE DOLLAR. So I bought it :-p Needless to say my husband was delighted to see I'd brought home "another bloody typewriter". But what was I to do? Spend it on half a twix instead?

The cases vintage typewriters come in are often in pretty grotty condition but just look at the lovely red-lined interior of this one, it even had the instructions and some sheets of old carbon paper tucked away in the pocket.

I repeat - ONE DOLLAR!

You definitely had to buy it! ;) I must say I do prefer the aqua one though.

Fabulous find and for one dollar I couldn't have left it either.

The dollar would probably have rolled behind the fridge as soon as you walked into the house if you hadn't stopped to purchase this latest treasure!!! xx

Wow, that's my favourite in your collection so far - that case! Teh red white and blue! Very well done :)

For one dollar, how could you leave it behind!? The red interior is damn gorgeous.

And if anything, it's valuable and can be resold for more than the $1 purchase price.

It seriously would have been a crime to leave it there... I'm curious to know where you store them? Love the red-lining. Doesn't it make you wonder what was typed??
