What a deal!!

Today Mom and I headed out to go to some thrift shops around town, but between our other errands, and an estate sale…that didn’t happen….

And this….is one of the lovely treasures I got today….a gorgeous Smith-Corona typewriter….like new……..First they wanted $20 for it, which is a good deal in itself…but, I didn’t want to spend the rest of my supply money on a typewriter(because I set out with $40 for supplies and I already had almost $20 worth of linens to use), so, I figured I’d ask, and figured you know, if they say $15 I’ll get it…but if they stick with $20, I’ll leave it….well hot dang! if she didnt come back and say $10!
And it came with a brand new 10-day touch typing course…on two records, the box is open, but the vellum envelopes around the records are still sealed….

I also found a whole bunch of sheets, pillowcases and curtains to cut up for aprons…which is exactly what I was going to look for today at the thrift shops…whooohooo!
So look for pictures in a few days of what I’m going to make with them!


Cheers,

    Very cool typewriter! I LOVE going to estate sales, but find it hard to make time for them these days. Love the aprons that you’ve been creating by the way. What a great idea it is to use vintage fabrics!
