|These beauties will be gone soon.|
I have officially caught up on my backlog of repairs. That took six weeks of working seven days a week, but it's done. And I am really exhausted and burned out. That was quite a ride if I do say so myself. Definitely one of the longer sustained rush of business I've had in some time. Now things have settled down to a normal pace and I can catch up some things I haven't had time to do lately like paper work, cleaning the shop and reconditioning machines, framing more ads to hang up on the wall.
While things are finally settling down, there's still lots of action happening. Service calls are still strong and I'm travelling up to twenty miles away to do some calls. I've noticed that I get a lot more emails now. I never know if they are local or long distance but it means that my name is getting out there more. I have the typosphere and you typecasters to thank for that. THANK YOU! I had some very nice sales this week.
|This machine sold itself. Love the medallion in the hood.|
This beautiful Smith Corona in burgundy sold a couple of days ago. Someone wants to do creative writing at home. I have a matching one in olive at the store. The olive one has the original instruction book dated 1935. A really nice lady bought a Royal "O" Model to use at home . An elderly gentleman got a Smith Corona Coronet XL electric typewriter for home use also. And lastly, a town clerk's office on the south shore bought a IBM Wheelwriter 3 for office use. I'm looking forward to this week. I can't wait to recondition those new machines so soon as possible.
Well, that's it for this week. Thanks for checking it out. I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
