If you're in the market for a vintage or antique typewriter but don't quite know where to start, look no further. I've been buying and selling vintage and antique typewriters for years, and finally decided to put my knowledge into a book. I wrote this book to help you find the perfect typewriter for you, no matter where you live or what you want.

"Your Typewriter; Finding, Buying, and Using a Vintage or Antique Typewriter, Even if You Don't Know Anything About Them" is written for everyone who wants a typewriter but wants to know where to find them, how to evaluate them, and how much to pay. This book will answer some of the most common questions that customers have asked me over the years. It incorporates information I've published in my blog, as well as new tips, photos, and links to resources and other online help.

Chapter 2. The Typewriter You Need

Chapter 3. Typewriter Taxonomy

Chapter 4. Finding Your Typewriter

Chapter 5. Evaluating Your Typewriter

Chapter 6. On Money

Chapter 7. Caring For Your Typewriter

Chapter 8. Conclusions, Resources, and Links

***PRACTICAL HELP***
Each section walks you through the steps you need to take to find a quality vintage or antique typewriter that suits your needs. I've helped hundreds of people find typewriters over the years, and have included all I've learned about matching buyers to the machine that is right for them.

The book is easy to read, with useful links to other resources that you may need or find helpful.

"Your Typewriter; Finding, Buying, and Using a Vintage or Antique Typewriter, Even if You Don't Know Anything About Them" is a book I think can help anyone who wants a typewriter but who isn't exactly sure how to go about finding, choosing, and caring for their machine.

If you want a typewriter but don't know where to start, this is exactly the book you've been looking for.

Returns and exchange details

I sell vintage and antique typewriters that are no longer made, some of which are 100 years old or more. As much as I'd love to be able to tell you that they will always be problem-free and last forever, I can't, because they won't.

Older machines can develop problems without notice, even if they're properly maintained and loved. I promise to accurately describe, photograph, or video any typewriter I sell. If you want additional photos or have questions about anything, all you have to do is ask. You can also inspect the machines in person if you are in the Kansas City area.

So, to make a long story short, I will accept most returns, but I do ask that you pay for return shipping. If your typewriter does not work as it should upon arrival, I'll accept a return unless it was sold as a display model. Also, if you do experience a problem, many times there is a simple repair that will solve it. I can often walk you through the repair so you don't have to send the typewriter back.

Questions about your order?

Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Payments

Secure options
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept credit cards, PayPal, or Etsy gift cards. If you absolutely must have a machine and cannot pay me with either of these methods, please contact me so we can try to work out a solution. I know how strong the pull of a vintage manual typewriter can be, and I'll do my best to make sure I get your baby to you.

Additional policies

A lot of vintage stuff, especially typewriters, is beautiful and awesome. But I suppose you already knew that.
