[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!!!
