Blue Typewriter Love

I had a fun thrifting week. Found this old 1970's Omega 30 typewriter sitting all alone on the thrift store shelf.

Such a pretty color.

Plus, it came with the top cover (the ditsy photographer forgot to take a photo of it snapped into place) which makes it highly portable and ready for a road trip.

Sure, it's not as portable as the new iPad, but it has more character.

Now where's the camera on this thing?

  4. Darn! I had a similar typewriter that our girls played with when they were little and I wish I had saved it. Although it reminds me of typing class in high school. I never was any good at those speed typing tests.

    Did you find the camera button yet?

  8. It's funny how our children have never been exposed to these. I don't miss keys getting stuck!

    You camera comment was hilarious!

  9. Amazing! I remember this typewriter well. My mother had one. Ours was cream. I remember her using it often and I even used it a few times for papers I had to do for school. Brings back memories.

  11. I love that color, and love old typewriters. I have my mom's old typewriter, purchased in 1960. And because Mom saved EVERYTHING, I even have the original sales receipt. Priceless!

  22. I used manual typewriters more than anything else for years. However, I never had a pretty blue portable.

  23. My parents gave me a portable typewriter when I started college, then took it back when I graduated and gave it to my younger brother to use during his college years! To this day I'm not happy about having to give up what I thought was MY typewriter!

  24. Oh adorable, we used to have a little old green typewriter from the '50's who knew I would wish I had kept it!
    So many things I allowed to slip through my hands.........
