Ah, QWERTY never looked so antique!
I went into Squash Blossom Trading Co. a few months ago and found a really cool old typewriter for just $30. I didn't buy it (saving up on Christmas funds!) and am really regretting it. It's since been purchased.
However, the fun antique store still has a typewriter available for purchase—and it comes in its own case!
It's a Smith-Corona Skywriter circa 1950s. It's completely portable and a great statement piece to an office.
As an avid writer (in case you didn't know), I would love to swipe this piece up and add it to my (currently non-existent) collection of typewriters.
It's absolutely endearing and a reminder of how far we've come in technology! Any other writers here who have a special place in their heart for the old-fashioned way of typing?
- What? Smith-Corona Skywriter typewriter.
- Where? Squash Blossom Trading Company at 746 Main St.
