Oh, the pleasures and pitfalls of eBay.
I return intermittently to eBay, often late at night, for a bit of innocent window-shopping. Only occasionally getting snared. This time I should have known better (and it calls my innocence into question) as I've had it in mind for a while to make a book using a typewriter . . ?
Typewriters have a kind of romantic aura about them,
. . . . perhaps a cautionary tale of falling in love with on-line shopping!
