strange_raptors: Rat from Spirited Away reenacting Chihiro's defeat of the bug (Spirited Away)
Hello, hello! 

Is anyone on my flist interested in a vintage typewriter? It is an Olympia make (made in Western Germany), probably dating from the 50's (it was my grandfather's). It's portable(!), in that it has its own carrying case. The notion of portable ends there, however, as the case is made from metal and thus adds a couple of kg on to the already hefty weight. 

It makes very satisfying typewriter noises.

It probably needs a new ribbon, which can be bought on ebay.

I'd rather it went to someone who has an intent to use it for writing, rather than just a collectible to sit around and collect dust (after all, it can do that here!). 

Any takers? Email me, or drop a comment and I'll email you. Pretty happy to deliver to anywhere in Oxford.
