Typewriter, Tip, Tip, Tip

My wonderful friend Kym found this for me at a church sale in Minnesota and brought it all the way back to me!

I just love it! This "portable" Montgomery Ward Signature 510 was originally purchased in 1966, and whoever owned it took very good care of it. The ribbon still works, so I was able to start playing right away. I have been on the lookout for a colored typewriter with carry case for a while now and this could not be more perfect! It has the original instruction manual, plus a pack of paper and some type lesson booklets from the 40s.

Chris and I are addressing all of our wedding invites on it.

I left it at his apartment and came back to discover a letter he typed to me still in the machine. Apparently he just can't get enough of the thing!
