Found a Brother portable for $20 at a thrift store that I’d never been to on Forest Lane. Also picked up my first Underwood. Paid $45 for it. Bought it from a guy who came into my shop at the flea market.

My latest thrift store find: Smith-Corona Galaxie II. Picked it up at a thrift store today for about $14 and change. It’s in excellent condition. The previous owner must have been a collector. He/she took very good care of the thing.
