Post(Card)-A-Day 12: Thoughts on Etsy Typewriters (1)
Looking at Etsy typewriters in descending order of price, one notices that the photography and descriptions get better at the high end of the range... naturally. Still, there is no better proof of the subjectivity of pricing than the fact that so many plastic typewriters - nicely photographed, but still plastic - are listed at such fantastic prices.
Of course, the best bargains are to be found in Europe :-), but here are a few typewriters on Etsy I would feel reasonably good about getting if I was in the market: Lettera 32, Olympia SM-7, Antares Parva, Underwood Noiseless Portable (with glass keys!).
Nothing quite like Robert's fine Condor, but it takes some patience and a bit of looking to strike Etsy gold!
