You Can't Take It With You
Believe it or not but someone was willing to throw away this antique dresser. Not me. My mom and I fixed the bottom portion that had come off with a few screws. Now the typewriter--I had to fight my grandma for it. :) As far as I can gather, it is a Royal Quiet De Luxe gold portable typewriter, dating back to around the late 1940s. The gold-plated machine was a limited edition and one of them was said to have been owned by the author Ian Fleming. How cool is that! Now I have one too. :)
Anyway, do you have any cool antiques?
