I haven’t been writing for a while because work is just so busy. I don’t have nearly enough time to go thrifting…and even less time to write posts. They don’t tell you how long it takes to write these things! Anyway, I had the day off today, so my friend Sophia and I went to the Melrose Trading Post on Melrose and Fairfax. It’s a really cool flea market that happens every Sunday. The fee to get in is only $2! Much cheaper than the Rose Bowl. Here are some pictures of the day
I didn’t find much until we were leaving. Suddenly I spotted something. Something turquoise. Something shiny. Something…incredible.
A vintage Remington Ten Forty typewriter. In turquoise.
I have been wanting a typewriter like this for years. Unfortunately, they tend to sell for around $100. It was $20 but they gave it to me for $15. It has the case with a handle but it is heavy, so I’m not surprised they were willing to sell it for less.
And the best part?
I am soooooooooo happy :) so so so so happy.
