I shopped victoriously! What an apt slogan! I am now the proud owner (thanks to Ebay) of this vintage light blue Royal Quiet Deluxe typewriter. It is supposed to be here in a week - I can't wait!
Thanks to Janine at UPPERCASE (a super cool type/font/design oriented gallery in Calgary, Canada) for getting me inspiring me to make the Royal typewriter search on Ebay. I was not disappointed!
