Hello, Mr Remington

I scored this just two hours ago, and could not wait to share it with the thrifting/vintage-loving world.
I have always wanted an antique typewriter... and there he was, handsome as I'd ever dream he'd be!
A Remington Rand typewriter, sitting under a decaying case (which I left behind) was just waiting for his Mrs Right.
It was love at first sight.
The wedding will be announced later this month.
(who says marrying an inanimate object never works out?)

  1. Ooh. Can I come to the wedding and bring my own Remington as a guest? :)

  2. Most assuredly! In fact, how's about making it a double wedding? ;)

  3. When I saw the name Remington in my news feed, I thought you had found an electric razor. This is so much better. Enjoy!

  4. Wow great find! Does it work like a dream?!

  5. Amanda: It does work! I didn't expect it to (I honestly would've been happy just to look at it longingly) - so am excited to actually use it as part of my creative work! I just need a new ribbon. :)

    Wilma44: I can't help but think of the '80s TV show 'Remington Steele' - when I first started crushing on Pierce Bronson. Which is probably why my feelings for this Remington are a little ... unrealistic.

  6. I got a similar model at Good Will recently and adore it. Have fun!

  7. Oh!!! You can put Mr. Remington in charge of the wedding correspondence (invites, thanks yous, etc). He should be perfect for that task. Great find!!!!

  8. Oh I'm so jealous! I really want to find one of these - but I would prefer it to be Danish so that I have the danish letters on it. Hmm maybe I will get lucky one day out in the dark west Jutland - that is a mecca for thrifters!

    Take care,
