After we checked out an antique mall. Here's some pics that chronicle this adventure:
|First, the requisite disheveled manniquin with missing limbs/extremities to get you in the right frame of mind of antiquing|
|at least there's spiderman to save you|
|i dont know what kind of SM this is but it was decent|
|wrote in all CAPS too and only $95.00! ...yeah not exactly a deal.|
|olivetti 21... first ive seen in person... a lot bigger than i thought|
|price is bigger than i thought too|
|not a bad looking machine.|
|crap price though|
|pretty nice huh? no case. lots of paint scrapes and scratches and|
the feet were petrified. Platen also rock hard.
|price needs some scraping off some dollars to make it |
no case but decent looking
|this had its case|
|ive never truly wanted an Oliver but i liked this one|
|$650.00 - most expensive one in the store.|
|again, no case but $225.00 - ridiculous|
|another oliver - no case though|
|a lot less expensive however still obscene|
|prob my fav machine of the day - no price and i didnt inquire bc i got the flavor of the prices in this place.|
|Their restroom was gaudy as F - and they sold mirrors in there.|
In the End, no typers bought.
Some people refer to this as typers in the wild but they are more in captivity than ever. It's more a zoo or pet store setting when typewriters are in antique stores. They are caged in and cant get out.
Depressing so i leave you with more Jessica Alba
