A little while ago I got an amazing charity shop buy, I got this typewriter for £10! So happy with it. Years ago I'd seen another typewriter for sale, in the same charity shop, but I didn't get and I regretted it because when I went back to getit of course it had gone. I searched all through ebay afterwards, and there are some crazy prices going on for some typewriters on there. It was a little too much for me.
I'm so happy that it's a lovely blue colour too, I've already put it to work (testing out making product labels with it). The ribbon is still ok, a little dry so I'm having to hammer down the keys a little. Such an amazing sound though.
