Number Crunchin’

If it works, how it works… that’s all secondary. 
It has little buttons, little numbers, and the paint’s been”loved” off – that’s pretty much all that mattered to me. 

I get a smile on my face each time I walk by and spy the little vintage adding machine. In my head I can hear the clickity-click of her buttons.  Such a fun conversation piece. As a bonus, I just found out my Dad has a manual for a similar machine in a box of stuff from back in the day when he use to own an antique store. I can’t wait to flip through that manual and learn more about the piece. Who knows, a little elbow grease and I may get it to work.

    So, Philip's shop is called Typewriter Boneyard bc he had too many vintage typewriters and adding machines in our house at one time. Maybe 10 at one point (yep, out of control). We love these little guys, but I had to put my foot down and say "enough is enough". ;)

    Chels – That is SO hilarious. I never knew where the name came from, but I can see how they can be addicting. They're just so dern cute!

    What a great find! I can just hear the sound of those keys as you punch some numbers in.
