Saturday night, before heading out to see The National, we stopped to grab a bite to eat. The restaurant happened to be located right next to a thrift store so as soon as I finished my meal I decided I'd run in for a quick look around. Well, if you know me at all you know that "quick" and "thrift store" are words that should never be used in a sentence together. I already had a cart full of dresses and rompers (more on that later) when my boyfriend came in to let me know we had to run. When we got up to the register, this beauty was sitting on the counter, still in its original case, calling out my name. Who could resist that aqua blue color? Apparently not me! I love the click-clack noise of the keys and the zip of the paper being pulled though the machine. I looked up the model online, an Olympia De Luxe, and the best I can tell it was made in the mid-60's in Western Germany. I can't wait to use it!
