[cross-post from The Jury Room]

Hi everyone.

I think my daughter likes to put at least one really hard item on her wishlist each year. lol ...

This year she has asked for (and I quote): a "Puuuuurrrrrreetttty black old typewriter thing that is not crappy."

Basically, she wants one of the old-style manual black typewriters (that functions). I've found quite a few on eBay and craigslist, but feel a bit leary since I really don't know if they actually work.

I just thought I'd post here to see if anyone has any ideas on where to look, or might even have one that they'd be willing to sell?

I am not sure if this post violates WS TOS, or not ... if it does, then I am sorry and will delete the thread.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or leads!!!
