yard sale find: vintage smith-corona typewriter

October 20 2010 |

I was yard sale-ing in my hometown a couple of months ago, searching for hidden treasures that might help with the vintage feel of our impending nuptials, and, as luck would have it, I found exactly the thing I was looking for.  I had it in my head that I wanted a vintage typewriter at the guestbook table, so that people could not only write, but type if they wished.  I stumbled across this vintage Smith-Corona at a yard sale in my old neighborhood, and knew it was perfect.  And better yet — it was only 15 buckaroos.

Isn’t that fun?  And I just loved that it still had the key to the case and the instruction manual, fully intact!  It’s a little dusty, and will need some love, but it’s fully functional.  And we’ve already used it for a project, to be posted here soon!  Here’s a hint — it’s one of the things on my 30 by 30…  Any guesses?
