While trolling thrift shops for typewriters I turned up a few interesting objects the other day. Some undoubtedly lovely, and one absolutely revolting.
1 – tiny dish with enameled painting of Piccadilly Circus. Made in England by Wade.
2 – glass coffee mug, Fire King. When I drink from this I’m expecting a waitress to come by and say “can I heat that up for you sweetheart?”
3 – Swedish made stapler with retractable staple removal tool on the bottom. The Volvo of staplers. Form follows function, neither too heavy nor too flimsy. Solidly made.
A useful little notebook, once presumably humorous now takes on an air of pathos. The question is “what to do with it”?
