Typewriters – An update

Here’s a happy problem – our supply of typewriters can’t seem to keep up with demand!

Apologies that I might not have updated the status of some of the typewriters on the blog, so here’s an update of the models we do have in the store now.

Below is my favourite  =) I had played with this when I was a kid (it’s my first typewriter!) but I have not seen this old friend again for ages.

Fortunately, I met it again after all these years. So this one’s not for sale =)

Isn't it adorable? My first typewriter!

That’s all folks (for now) as typewriters are increasingly hard to come by. Another happy problem – this means more people are keeping them in the family perhaps? =)

Guys are hard to shop for, so we think these vintage cufflinks make really good gifts! They come with their original box and are in tip-top condition. We have a large variety to choose from and prices start at $30 a pair. Here are some amazingly stylish  examples in the $30 price range. Free gift wrapping provided.
