a few ramblings about things i love, people i admire, places i've been and things i've seen...but most important of all the many mattresses i find abandoned in and around London NW10 aka MATTRESSLAND

1960s Adler Contessa
1950s Smith Corona 5 Series
i am loving these gorgeous typewriters from NYC based kasbah mod. they restore vintage typewriters to their former glory and in some cases also upgrade with a new paintjob. am so glad that i recently asked my mum for my old turquoise Petite Super International typewriter (still in it's case) which was stored away in the attic.
1970s Petite Super International
i remember receiving it as a birthday present as a child - but to be honest i think i only really began to appreciate its beauty as an adult (despite friends telling me i am hording enough junk and i should get rid of it) and would love to get it back into working order. sadly i have, so far, been unable to locate a ribbon supplier as they don't manufacture them anymore. perhaps i need to look up the kasbah boys on my next trip to NYC!
