About

Can our shop pay for our toddlers' future university education?

University is expensive. After having our second child this year, I worked out, we would need to save £60 a week to pay for our 2 year old and nought year old's University tuition fees...and that's if they don't increase the price in the next 16 years.

This made us queasy.

So we opened a shop here. And a savings account. We sell hand-typed quotes on an antique Remington typewriter onto high quality, linen-embossed card. There is a quote for every occasion. Or you can order your own.

Every penny we earn will go into this new bank account and will remain untouched until our 2 year old hits 18.

Let's see how we get on.

If you are looking for the right words to say to someone, but can't quite find them: search the collective wisdom of authors, musicians and script writers within my shop.

All quotes are beautifully presented on high quality, linen embossed, ivory coloured card. All are hand typed using an antique Remington, New York typewriter. Every item within my shop, therefore, is completely original and unique.

If, however, you HAVE found the right words, you can customize your order with your own quotation or your own words. Just contact us!

We also refurbish old typewriters and restore them to their former glory. Check out the small selection we have painstakingly and lovingly restored.
