The answer: Keep collecting typewriters.My limit was 50 and a few times when I hit 50 I was able to give away or sell the excess or machines that were quite common, perhaps not good typers, some that I had duplicated with the same but in better condition. Then I started to restrict buying to certain machines and ages. Now I have surpassed the 50 mark with no intention of matching Robert Messenger with over 900.
The problem is I've been restrictive like that ever since 75! It slowed down the growth, but it's certainly not stopping at any time. I've also almost ran out of typewriters to sell.
There really is no answer other than keep on going!
I bought some of that same shelving from Home Depot! It's in my basement, where it conveniently holds many typewriters. Let's face it, we're hoarders. At least we're hoarding GOOD stuff.I have to laugh in delight when I see the various accessories that Eugene is collecting on his travels.
good to see Eugene is comfortable. That's a pretty good decorating scheme that creates space. I need more shelving too.
the answer is MOAR SHELVING! :D.. and moar adventures with the Typospigeon (:
Imagine being rich enough to own a high street typewriter shop, yet not have to worry about selling any of the typewriters you have on display. :)
Wow! A 60/70 room in your house sound like a lot of coziness. And 100 typewriters? You know they will just keep multiplying. There's no fix for that.Yay, Eugene!
it is not unacceptable, nor is there other moral impediments i am aware of.
