Flea Market Finds

I haven't visited flea markets for a long time, but yesterday I finally made time and went to a couple of my favourite places. Here is my catch:

  • Imperial Messenger portable typewriter in leather case. Great condition! This model was produced from 1963 to 1967.
  • Four volumes of Big Animal Book. First issued in Italy in 1974. Filled with beautiful pictures and interesting descriptions.
  • Olivetti Valentine typewriter in original case. 1969. What a beauty! True style icon.

I'm very happy with my finds! My typewriter collection keeps growing. I definitely need to move to a bigger room as soon as possible. :)

To see other flea market treasures of this week, visit Sophie.

Have a thrifty weekend! ;)

I had no idea you were a typewriter collector until Sally Anderson told me! I have four so far, and collect typewriter ribbon tins, too! We should chat and show what we have!
