I typed out so many term papers and writing assignments on that typewriter while sitting at the vintage desk I talked about in The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects and Vintage Details.
I don't know if my dad still has that old typewriter, but my sister now has the old wooden desk in her home office. As I recounted in The Find, I bought that hulking piece of furniture at a thrift store in Independence, Missouri when I was 19 and hauled it home in a 1977 four-door, powder blue Chevy Chevette for my dad to lovingly refinish.
You can tell it's an exceptionally sturdy piece of furniture since I was able to sit right on top of it for the author photo that Bob Greenspan snapped for The Find.
