Manual Typewriters are Back!

Who says the manual typewriter days are over? For those of you who love the simplicity and easy of basic old time typewriting, this post is for you! Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the days where we didn’t have to concern ourselves with saving, printing, and formatting our files (not to mention modern day computer viruses, freezing and losing all files…etc). Some would say writing novels or letters with a typewriter rather than a computer gives a more authentic feel, therefore a better end result to your masterpiece. Furthermore, we simple and traditional people don’t mind our traditional back end systems and prefer to risk a few minor “irreversible” mistakes. Don’t you remember using white-out? Yes, that still exists. Go out and get yourself some good-old-fashioned white-out to go along with this vintage manual typewriter. You will most definitely not regret it as the current bid is as low as $100 USD. You have until TOMORROW, May 18th 2016 at 10:35 am to go ahead and make a final bid on this gem! It is located in Garden City, KS. To bid on this Royal Manual Typewriterclick here to head over to www.governmentauctions.org and sign up for your FREE 3 day trial!
