What type of stuff you wonder? One working Underwood Noiseless 77 typewriter. (Yes, I've been reading too many wedding blogs. However, when you see what we're going to do with it, you'll agree why I couldn't pass it up.)
I've been searching for a working vintage typewriter for awhile now, in fact, ever since I saw an artist that used them to create poetic artwork at Maker's Faire last May. Sure I came across Royals. Smith Coronas. Remingtons. Even an Olympia, exactly like my mom's that I learned to type on. But there's something about an Underwood that captivates me. The model we scored was manufactured between 1946 and 1948. Surprisingly there's even some ink on the ribbon!
Coming this week, I'll reveal which stoneware crock I got to contain our expanding collection of cooking utensils; review Dara's, a North Berkeley restaurant specializing in Thai & Laotian Cuisine; reveal a dirty secret; share the name of where we think the best salumi plate in SF can be found, and more!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
