Look what I scored the other day...
There is a wonderful little upscale re-sale shop in town called The
Green Goat that deals mostly in re-purposed furniture and cool vintage
items. While the quality of the items she sells is upscale, her prices
are more than reasonable. This little beauty cost me under $50. I have
seen similar ones priced on line anywhere from $75 to $700. Yikes!
I am so excited as I have been wanting a vintage typewriter for ages.
It will go great with the antique printer's trays I purchased a few
months ago. It weighs about 20 pounds and needs a little cleaning, but
all the pieces are there and it appears to work just fine. I have a wonderful little vignette pictured in my mind with the typewriter and printer's trays...we'll see how long it takes me to get it completed.
In the meantime, take a look at this...
I have a stamp that matches. Imagine that! :)
I made a slit just above the paper bail (feeder) and slipped my "typed" piece of paper through it. I thought the colorful paper was a nice contrast to the black and white image.
The patterned paper is a sneak peak from the upcoming Sale-a-bration catalog called Sycamore Street. It will be available January 22nd!
