I've been eyeballing typewriters for a little over a month and this past weekend I was lucky enough to stumble upon this lovely lady.
She is an Olympia SM3 from the 50's. As far as I can tell she is in perfect working order and I am pleased as punch. The ribbon is a bit dry and works a little but I order some new ones from ebay which should be here soon.
I never thought I would be someone into vintage or antique things but as I get older I appreciate them much more.
Do you collect or look for vintage items? Where do you go? I don't know about the entire state of Florida but I have a hard time finding good places to go looking for things in the Tampabay area.
