a thrifted typewriter
The sale's associate welcomed me and shared that everything in the store was 90% off. The store was closing and it was only open for one more day. I scooped up a few craft supplies for the kids then headed to the back of the store. I spotted this vintage typewriter complete with the original key and hard case.
Now I am the proud owner of a vintage Olympia typewriter. Made in West Germany in 1957. Overall in good condition though likely the ribbon needs to be replaced and the keys stick a bit. And to be honest I have no idea how to use it!
I am hopeful it will teach me how to type on a typewriter. I plan to start on Page One! Do you have any typewriting tips or know of any online tutorials?
