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!

A History Class With A Lot Of History In It.



Each row of desks are a different style






Zoom in and try to identify as many objects as you can.






This Monarch No.3 works great again.





This is one cool setup. A typewriter with it's own stand.



These 3-bank machines are neat little compact machines.




I love the thumb wear mark on the space bar.


This folding Corona is off to Pittsburgh.

Does anybody know what application this keyboard is for?



When you buy a lot of machines, sometimes they come with stuff.

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.
