The (almost) $1 Olympia Traveller

Wrong Way, Write Way

I met up with a good friend today for lunch.  He is always kind enough to keep me in mind when he’s out at yard sales and such, knowing that I collect typewriters.  He recently sent me a text message asking if he should buy this Olympia Traveller DeLuxe for one dollar.  I said HECK YEAH!

Brought it home after lunch.  Re-threaded the ribbon correctly (folks notoriously thread the ribbon into the vibrator incorrectly).  Rolled in some paper – perfect!  A small amount of cleaning and she’ll be ready for the party!

It did cost me slightly more than a dollar, I picked up the tab for lunch.  HA!  Still a screaming deal!  Thanks Bryan.   ~TH~
