Typewriters in Seattle & Collected Summary of Collecting

These results show, considering they are about 2 years worth of continuous searching, that in the end it doesn't really matter where you look. You will find typewriters worth keeping in just about any venue as long as you keep at it long enough! Perhaps the antique store findings would be much higher if I had allowed myself a limit of, say, $50 instead of $30. But only slightly.

Typed on my Torpedo 18.

And well, actually, it's Lynnwood and Edmonds but Seattle sounds better.


  1. Glad to see that you are spending time wisely in your new home. I'm sure some must-have typewriter is going to come along, but meanwhile, you certainly have a nice set of writing machines. Your Torpedo does beautiful work.

  2. Nice typeface on your Torpedo. You still have a nice collection with you. At least you can find typewriters out and about. Some of those prices do not seem too bad, but without seeing a machine it is hard to tell.
