Thrifty Belated Thursday

My latest op-shopping adventure found me a Royal 200 typewriter for the bargain price of $20!

I've been on the look out for one for a long time, perfect for journalling and scrapbooking on those little pieces of paper that just won't go through a printer easily!
Thank-you to the lovely ladies at the Hobart Cat Centre Op Shop in Glenorchy for reducing this little gem from $30 to $20, I'll be back to buy more goodies to make up the difference! 

Oooh and one more mention, Hobart's Frock Up event is on this weekend, it'll be a must see, lots of antique and vintage clothing on sale!

Takes me back to the days when I was learning to type on a tiny portable in my bedroom.

That's a fantastic find! i'm very jealous. The ones i've seen so far are hundreds of dollars at least.

This is a very neat find, Jo....typewriters have little personalities all of their own that computers and printers don't, so look forward to seeing what you create!
