Oops, I did it again!

You may remember me posting a while back about picking up an Olivetti Lettera at a flea market, and then posting about selling it quite recently...

Well, a few weeks ago I was at a garage sale and what did I see with a $2 sticker on it???


Another Olivetti Lettera 32.

Yes, I did buy it. But who, in all honesty, wouldn't have for $2? I missed the one I sold so much, its lovely greenness had been replaced with an empty space, now it's filled again...

Don't judge me :-)

And is husband saying, "What? Damn it, Woman, I told ya's to get rid of that!"

I love the typewriter AND THE PRICE! Do you use yours? If so, do you know a handy resource for typewriter ribbon? :)

Eleni said...

Destiny, obviously! I'd have done the same :)

The color of this typewriter is absolutely stunning! And the $2 price tag is simply outta this world! Way to go :)

Oh I love it to pieces. It's simply adorable. I'm now on the look out for one for my 10 year old who has been on a writing frenzy lately (you'd die if you saw his spelling) but I don't want to dampen his enthusiasm... If you ever want to sell her let me know otherwise, any hints on a good one to buy? E-bay you reckon? Kindest, Pruxxx P.S. You should have a store, I'd buy everything!! Pruxxx P.S. Inspired by your greens and blues post, I'm so going to create a flotsam in those colours. Px

I think I might have to join the garage sale army on Saturday mornings if it's going to net me finds like this. Well done.
