Category Archives: Olivetti Lettera 32


Found myself selling some excess typers at the FRANKLIN FLEA in Philadelphia — a nice gal from Singapore and her entourage took turns trying out the machines. She bought an inexpensive Traveler C to bring back home… and will be bringing a Type-IN to Singapore, I predict.



PS– if you’re near Philadelphia on SAT, Dec. 21, stop by the FRANKLIN FLEA to check out my booth full of manual typewriters, slide rules, Rolodexes and Filofaxes, Cassette machines and more.  (801 Market St., 10-5pm — 45 vintage dealers–and me)

TWO TYPE-INs coming to Philadelphia: 13 Sept. + 19 Oct.



SO– Here’s the scoop: first one (Friday, 19 Sept.)  is a big benefit to help make the 215 Lit Fest happen. So it costs money (a cool twenty), but you will have a good time in a bookstore like you have never seen.There will be typewriters, including an Olivetti Lettera 32 on auction, and other goodies.


Second one (Sat., 19 October) is part and parcel of the 215 Fest, which will bring a great array of literary and musical talent to Philadelphia. It’s outside, free and will feature amplified typewriter haiku… among other things! DETAILS SOON.
