Busiest Christmas Season Ever!

A young teen writer found this under her tree.


I sold a bunch of this 1950's Smith Coronas

Also sold many of these 50's Quiet de Luxe models.

A handful of these Super Sterlings under the tree too.

For the American Girl Doll "Kit" fans.

A couple of these Underwood 319's are in new hands.


A Silent-Super on Sylvia Plath's writing desk.

These Underwoods got trashed at Burning Man Festival.

After 75 Years - It's Time For A New Owner.



Ed Clark at his writing spot.




Every best selling book was typed on this machine.


The Typewriter Revolution is selling well at the shop.


It's so nice to get a machine in with a great story to it!

Mr. Mowrer's name is still on the shipping label.

This store window on Newbury Street is filled with antique sewing machines.

What a great old dealer sticker.

Just found this inside a SM-9 case.

The Typewriter Rodeo Comes To Town

The Typewriter Rodeo at work.



This 1922 Corona 3 will look great on film.


This picture doesn't do this ingenious  innovation justice.

A wonderful little book store in a small town near me.



This is an art exhibit at The Hess Collection in Napa, California

This 1953 Oliver Portable is a beautiful machine.

Great Time At Our Fall Type-Out


The typing contest is always a highlight of the day.

















The QWERTY cupcakes were a hit.


Carbon paper from Russia.


The prizes.


The winner.






Awesome Torpedo in a color we don't what to call.
