While we certainly appreciate the speed and technological ease that computers offer, we just couldn’t let go of our portable typewriter with the soothing clickety-clack of its keys, workhorse reliability, and the fact that it types at a pace that lets us think. It’s true, we don’t anticipate selling many of our portable typewriters to the computer-savvy crowd, but we might be wrong about that. Like the magic of reading a printed book or magazine, there's a certain romance to composing letters or drafting your first novel on an old-school manual typewriter. Features include a full-sized keyboard, variable line spacing, a backspace key, space bar, and ribbon selector. Rugged steel construction, sturdy plastic housing and carrying case. Approx. 15½"Wx12½"Lx4¾"H.

  • Full-size keyboard
  • Variable line spacing and backspace key
  • Ribbon selector
  • Sturdy carrying case
  • Replacement ribbons available (#H4265)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Love Vermont Country Store, but NOT this typewriter This typewriter felt very cheap and flimsy and was very hard to use. You really had to punch the keys to get it to type. It also was defective - the space bar didn't work. But on the plus side Vermont Country Store was fabulous about the return and my refund. April 4, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointment I was looking forward to using a manual typewriter. They are difficult to find. I grew up using my mother's typewriter, and wanted to spend less time in front of a computer screen when I write (for a hobby). I am disappointed with this typewriter because the housing materials feel overly fragile and the keys do not move smoothly. The owner's manual is paltry and unhelpful for a newer typewriter user. The eggshell color is lovely, and the weight is lighter than I'd imagined. I feel this is truly an old-fashioned typewriter, but not a high-quality model. March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by my penpals appreciate this I wanted to put letter writing back into my life, and since my "real life" friends aren't as enthusiastic I joined a penpal organization. My handwriting has gotten horrible over the years - so! A typewriter! This is a great typewriter, has become a dear friend to me, and I am so glad Vermont Country Store had it, as well as the ribbons for it. Computers and printers - when it comes to letter writing, there is such a disconnect. But the typewriter helps the letter writing be that much more of a special occasion. August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome For the past several years I've been wanting to get a manual typewriter. I'm tired of using a computer for writing stories because after a while my eyes start getting irritated from staring at the computer screen. None of the typewriters I found in other websites seemed to catch my attention, but when I saw this one I knew that's the one I needed to get. I got it right away. I am so happy with it. I can type for a couple of hours and my eyes don't get irritated and also I don't get distracted as with a computer. I love this store and will continue to purchase more things. August 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great manual typewriter The Vermont Country Store is a great place to go for unusual items. Whereas a manual typewriter was easily available years ago, such is no longer the case. I wanted one so as to be independent of electricity and I finally found it at the Vermont Country Store. It is easy to carry around and easy to use. March 26, 2015
