Typewriters in Santa Fe.


The well is dry. Today, as my girlfriend looked at turquoise in the main square, I footed it through backstreets to find three antique shops. I found a fine Royal KMM, an Olivetti Studio 44, and a Thom Thumb toy. I also found a Hermès Baby and a Hermès 3000. The former was $350 and the latter lost its tag. I offered $150. It had the rounded body and was in perfect condition. No go. I bought a pencil sharpener and a ribbon tin.

    I’m just down the road in ABQ. Haven’t shopped for typewriters in Santa Fe but it’s an expensive town.
