Closed to New Admissions

The East Texas Broken Typewriter is now closed to new applicants. That's not to say that I won't stumble across something in a thrift store and purchase it, or that Olympia that I bought on Etsy will ever come in (it won't), but the shelves are full...over full, in fact, and I don't have the room or time to take any more machines in. I do still have to take more pictures to detail the rest of the collection, and will do that in the next several days, but that's as far as that goes. I have some interesting experiences to relate with various Royal typewriters that I'm dying to put down...I just don't have the time at the moment.

But I will, in a few days, when I blog again. Be back soon.


  1. I fully understand the room for more typewriters. I find I filled my shelves, the spare spaces I created in my radio room when I put all my machines on shelves and now I have a few machines stored in the garage. Wish I could stay with one set of shelves full.

    Good idea to limit more to only thrift stores. Generally better prices and no shipping plus you get to try the machine first.

    1. There's nothing more disappointing than getting a broken machine in the mail. And there's no way to prove it wasn't broken in transit. Sure, you can mail it back, if you want to pay for the return shipping and basically double your cost. It's a crapshoot. So, no more disappointments.
