I've added a few new fun pieces to my Etsy Shop!

This was the first model Remington produced as a portable machine in 1921.  Remington portables were extremely popular and was produced for years in varying styles and colors, but this is one of the originals!  It has all its original glass and ivory keys and original carrying case, and is still in working order.

This clock was salvaged from Briarcliff Elementary School in Seattle before the school was torn down.  This clock was produced in September of 1951 by Industrial Business Machines (IBM). Slave clocks were designed for schools and warehouse business who had employees clocking in to work in separate locations.  The clocks are hard wired through the walls to a Master clock in the main office, that would set the time for all the clocks in the building.  Because of this, this particular clock does not have a working mechanism, though it is not hard to refurbish it with a new one. I have also seen some conversion boards selling on Etsy.

Its always fun to find some good industrial items.  The problem I have is giving them up!  I actually have two of the Typewriters and two of the clocks because I had to keep one of each for myself!

Let me know if you have any questions or if you are interested in any of the items in my shop.  I will give any of my blog readers 10% off.  Just type "Blog10" in the coupon code box when you are checking out!
