Well I've moved into a new place (again) and start classes tomorrow. This is (hopefully) my final term of university! Normally I move in the night before classes start, but for my last term I decided to take it easy and gave myself 2 full days to get settled. Which of course means I had time to go antique shopping today!
I was very good and only bought one thing. I have been longing for a portable typewriter for a while. I have a 1920's Underwood but I'm pretty sure it weighs more than I do! I saw this sweet Smith-Corona and knew I just had to have it. It was pretty cheap since the case is in poor condition. The typewriter itself works well though. I may give her a bit of oil so she runs more smoothly but so far she works better than I expected. I think she needs a name though. She looks like a Cordelia to me; what do you guys think?
