Vintage Royal III typewriter

Vintage Royal III typewriter

My vintage typewriter came today! It’s a Royal III, and it’s in fantastic condition. I won it on eBay for $10 (plus shipping, which was still reasonable). Came with the case, manuals, even the original sales tag!

And then I found this heavyweight beauty at our local Humane Society thrift shop. I had never been in before, and I was so thrilled to find this for just $5. I have a lot of reading to do, but so far as I can tell, I won’t be able to use this unless I convert it for a different size of pack film.

Aren’t they lovely? I’ve made a “no buying things online” commitment this month, so I’m happy to have discovered a new favorite thrift shop! 🙂
