About this blog

This blog is about the daily activities in a busy typewriter shop. I want to share with you the many interesting people who come in here, the beautiful machines I get and most of all the great typewriter stories that people share with me!

Year In Review-2016


Someone in the midwest found this Vogue Royal P under the tree.

This beautiful Remington 5 was also a Christmas gift.

I had great stock for Christmas gifts this year.

A local writer must have been very happy unwrapping this.



My poem about the shop by the Typewriter Rodeo.


Arthur Grau, Richard, me and Abraham at the TypeBar Type-In.


A family checking out typewriters in Belfast, Maine.

Met Tom the Typewriter Man in London in June.

This Smith Corona Sterling has special math symbols.




1930 Remington No. 3 with Yiddish keyboard.

Greek Olympia SM-7 was a Xmas present.

1928 red Royal P also found under the tree.

Half the machines sold were inexpensive ones like this Brother .

Lots of 8-12 year olds ended up with something like this Remington Envoy.

I had a few Royal Deluxes that went quick for the holidays.
Olympia SM-3 was one of the first holiday machines sold.

Meet Ten Foot Tom



I got to watch the artists install my mural.

During the dedication I had to give a short talk in front of my mural.



Someone is going to find this Vogue type under the tree soon.

I love this peachy Royal P machine.

This is the first Emerson No. 3 I've had in the shop for repair.

Fall Type-In and More Shop Stuff

A rainy day brought us inside for the afternoon.




The winner got this pin and a Olivetti Lettera 31.



Vogue print on this Woodstock is a rare find.

Martin Tytell's dealer sticker is on the back.

His dealer shift key is very faded.



Typing in the courtyard of the Friends House on Beacon Hill.





This rebuilt Super Speed has caps only Bulletin Gothic type.

My friend Peter send me this page of L.C. Smith large type.
