Two Pretty Little Typewriters

I couldn't believe it when I found a pretty aqua-colored typewriter for ten bucks at the estate sale we went to Sunday. I usually don't even bring that much money to estate sales, but this perfect-condition beauty was worth it!

Of course, I couldn't show off one typewriter without giving my other one a little blog time :) The pretty, black Royal typewriter belonged to my Grammy, who gave it to me at Christmas last year! I love it so much!

Vintage Royal Typewriter, From Grammy; Vintage Smith-Corona Typewriter, Estate Sale ($10)
The best thing is that they both work! It's pretty funny to hear me typing up something though, because they are pretty loud :)

The one that Grammy gave me even has brushes to keep the typewriters clean and free of dust. You better believe I'm taking the best care of my lovely treasures!

Do you all like old typewriters too?



  1. I'm on the hunt for a vintage typewriter and have been for about a year. I love typing on those old things!

  2. Me too, Emily :) This is the first really great one I've come across, too! I always see the ugly electric ones at my thrift stores, but nothing as pretty as these!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
