Latest Review | ★★★★★
Ania & Jacek were wonderful to work with. We needed 4 of the same Olivetti Studio 46 black typewriters for a company's new brand launch. They were very responsive in working with us as we arranged everything to be shipped to multiple company headquarters around a tight timeline. We also appreciated that they got on skype to work with our client when we needed some help troubleshooting. The typewriters are beautiful and will be permanently on display (and used!) at each location for years to come. We'd definitely purchase from them in the future and have had a great experience! Thanks for all of your help Ania & Jacek! :)
We revitalize typewriters for the good of humanity.
For the last 15 years, we've been living on the Spanish Costa del Sol. We enjoy the sunny weather, bring up our two sons and four rescued dogs and we combine our passions into one fulfilling journey.
We've always liked exceptional things, and we always start each of our trips with a visit to a local flea market where we hunt for treasures. The idea of having our shop appeared many years ago, but at that time we couldn't even have dreamt about selling our typewriters to such distant countries as New Zealand, China, USA or Sri Lanka! Now thanks to the Internet anything is possible!
Quality and hard work always win.
We safely shipped overseas to over 65 countries and our machines are displayed in museums, galleries and hundreds of them are in private collections around the world. Our Pink Olivetti Lettera 32 is in Lady Gaga's hands, a set of custom-made Olivetti Letteras 35 on Eddie Vedder's desk and our Lilac Olivetti Lettera 25 in Ruby Rose's house.
The list is growing and more and more people are inspired!
Thousands of romantic love letters and greeting cards were written on our typewriters.
A typewriter is a machine, but with a soul! It is your best friend...
It listens to you, records your feelings and thoughts, connects them to the keys ...it will take minutes, hours, years... your stories and memories transferred to paper
And in the future, your typewriter will be a perfect gift for someone you love.
.... A new story will begin :)
Richard Polt (typewriterrevolution.com) once wrote - "Every typewriter is unique. It's been touched a million times by its owner(s)... As the habits of its user creates nicks and quirks, the typewriter's behaviour becomes more individual."

All You need is love and a good typewriter!
