What's your type(writer)?

The typewriter seems to be a relic from the past. This was how letters, books, magazines and so on were written long before the computer came along. They're beautiful machines and for those who love writing and love reading the classics, you should not be without one. The good thing is that you can find them everywhere - just look. They're on displays in stores, in museums (Henry Miller and Beat Museums, for example) and best of all in flea markets and second hand stores. Get one!

Karlovo nám. 2097/10, 120 00 Praha-Nové Město, Czechia
One of the best things about Prague is the fact that there is excellent public transportation - a metro, buses and even trams. There are still many of the older ones around, which look great gliding past the 19th & 18th century buildings. Get to...

Cannot get enough of these old typers. This one was in one of the flea markets in Paris. Wonder what prose was written on this baby?!

San Bartolomé, Las Palmas, Spain
I found this little typer in the museum in the village of San Bartolome on Lanzarote. Nice to come across an American classic - a Smith-Corona. The company started in 1886 but unfortunately, thanks to those dang word processors and then computers,...

Calle Badajoz, 31, 28931 Móstoles, Madrid, Spain
One of the biggest flea markets that I have ever been to is located in Madrid, Spain. El Rastro is an old neighborhood that is teeming with activity, but the place really comes alive on Sunday mornings for the weekly flea market. You can buy just...

Drève Richelle 10, 1410 Waterloo, Belgium
Known as a "brocante" in French, the Waterloo flea market is held every Sunday morning rain or shine (usually rain). You can buy just about anything there as well. Sometimes the prices are over the top (makes you wonder how somebody can ask for...

Like going to a Parisian flea market but without the jet lag, Little Cricket is (and has been for more than a decade) the go-to spot in Montclair for unique vintage finds. Thematic, but ever-changing, the shop is stocked with a surprisingly...
