I'm back!

Hi :)

I'm finally back! After a long absence...


I'm well aware that there many post to read, lots of new acquisitions for me to envy and a great deal of news! I'll try to give them all a peek.

The movings are finally over :) After a dreadful month of packing, transporting and unpacking. And nor my old house nor the new has elevator... So we had to do it all by stairs. A nigthmare! For now all it's missing it's the stove but i'm expecting it to be delivered sometime this week and of course there are some new Ikea furnitures to assemble.

My typewriters lost their prominent place and are no longer in exposition like they used to in the old house. We've decided to change some of the decoration and now some of my favourites are yet in exposition but the rest are all packed in their cases and stored in the last shelf of the bookcase...

During this absence I took the time to buy one more typewriter but you'll have to wait until I officialy introduce it to the blog.  Now I remember, there are already two in the queue!

I've also found out a flea market that has some typewriters. It's only once a month but that's better than none. I'm soon hopping to have news on this matter.

This week I had the chance to watch "My week with Marilyn". And as always I like to share my typewriters spotting. This time it's an Hermes. Perhaps an Ambassador. I'm not sure, but it's huge...

  2. Bienvenido!! Nice to hear the moving went right and that you're all setup again. I can't wait to read more about your collection and the new finds!

    Whoa.. now that's a HUGE machine, indeed! Is it electric? Looks like there's a carriage return key in the keyboard.

    1. Thanks for the advice, Adwoa! But I'm still on the hunt for a cursive typewriter :)

  6. Boas Fernando, tenho seguido atentamente o seu blog e gostaria de saber se me podia ajudar. Não sou coleccionador de máquinas de escrever mas ando à procura de uma olympia sm3 há uns tempos. Será que me podia dar alguma dica sobre onde encontrar um exemplar destes à venda na net? Obrigado. Alex

    1. Oi Alex! Cá em Portugal ainda se vão encontrando com alguma facilidade em sites como o OLX e o Custo Justo. Se encontrares algum negócio na tua zona ainda consegues poupar os gastos de envio. Mas a grande maioria tem teclados azerty ou hcesar. Recordo-me de ter visto esta há algum tempo e pareceu-me estar em boas condições (http://lisboacity.olx.pt/maquina-de-escrever-antiga-olympia-fecho-de-loja-iid-340225356) apesar de precisar de uma boa limpeza. Embora tenha um teclado azerty tem a mais valia de dar para A3. O eBay alemão é uma mina de máquinas de escrever e com a particularidade de ter preços bastante económicos, custos de envio acessíveis e não ser necessário pagar custos de alfândega. Embora a maioria tenha teclados qwertz. Espero ter ajudado :)

    2. Já tinha descoberto o ebay alemão, de facto poupa-se muito mais comparando com o americano. Muito obrigado pela ajuda, tou inquieto para pôr as mãos numa máquina destas :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uK6ip4Lvyns Thanks!
