I live in a town with a vibrant typewriter history. In addition to owning my own Woodstock typewriter — something I’d been hunting down for a long time — as well as a gorgeous Royal typewriter, I love thinking about the fact one of the bigwigs for a local typewriter company lived in my house. Nerdy? Indeed.

Looking at vintage typewriters is something I enjoy doing, and I absolutely adore any sort of typewriter flair. Stickers, mugs, prints — let me drool, please.

If you love a typewriters and typewriter paraphernalia, then you’re going to love this roundup of typewriter fetish. There are no actual vintage typewriters included, but I highly recommend seeking them out on Etsy or Ebay. Of note: the shipping can be very pricey, as the weight of typewriters isn’t insignificant. I spent a long time looking on those sites, and then I would haunt local antique shops until one landed in them.
