A Little Organization Goes a Long Way

I took some time to dust my home collection and I thought that some people might enjoy a look at how I have them displayed.

These are just the home machines. The ones at school make for the sum total of the collection. I really like this IKEA shelf (Expedit) because each cube is the perfect size for a typewriter.

  1. Very attractive collection.
    How often do you have to dust them? ;-)

  2. Just put one of those together this weekend for my son's own organizational needs, which are numerous. Only one typewriter may find itself housed there, though.

  3. Ooh...shiny! It's far better than my own typewriter storage system, which I like to call "any flat surface."

  4. Nice display! The IKEA Expedit is our shelving of choice, too, although we keep the typewriters in their cases. For the ultra-portables (Hermes Baby, Groma, Tippa, etc), I can fit four to a shelf! Keeps things nice and tidy around here.

  5. What a great idea! I'll make it a point to get one of those shelves for my "babies".

  6. Very nice, sir! Very nice! I guess we can add "great-typewriter-storage-" to IKEA's sales manifesto of inexpensive Swedish Modular furniture. Expedit for sure!

  7. Very nice display. It's nice to have room to display one's typewriters.

  8. Is this a pretty sturdy shelf? I'm thinking of ordering this myself. Has anyone purchased any of the inserts for this system as well?
