Typewriting penpals, anyone?

As a result of the Secret Santa typewriter letter exchange over Christmas, I’ve received a handful of typewritten letters that I’ve really enjoyed.  My penpals seem to talk a lot of other penpals, and I find I’d really like to have more people to correspond with–especially if they are people who love typewriters.  I don’t know if anyone even reads this blog (and come to think of it, those who do probably already know my address?) but would anyone like a new penpal?  I am quick to reply to letters and would love to get to know new friends through a more traditional method of communication.

First typewriter purchase of 2012 — Red Sears Courier

I’ve been salivating over the thought of a nice red (not-Valentine) typewriter for a while, and before Christmas had my eyes on a Sears Courier on Etsy, but it was out of my price range.  Imagine my delight when one popped up again on Etsy within my price range.  Though the purchase was still pretty pricey–my biggest purchase ever at $140 plus shipping–I do believe it is well worth it!  I have a red Sears Courier typewriter being shipped my way soon~

I am beyond pleased with my first typewriter purchase of 2012.  This Sears Courier is mechanically identical to the Lettera 22–just the color and keys are different.   I can cross it off my typewriter wishlist now!  Can’t wait till it comes in.
