Where can I purchase a manual typewriter?

A manual typewriter can be purchased from eBay through its website. As of August 2014, the website had 859 listings for antique and vintage manual typewriters.

Manual typewriters can be purchased from other online retailers including myTypewriter.com and VintageTypewriterShoppe.com. Thrift stores, pawn shops and yard sales are also good places to look for manual typewriters. Some popular brands include Remington, Blickensderfer, Underwood, Smith Corona, Royal and IBM Selectric. According to Murray Segal, a typewriter repairer and restorer, manual typewriters may have different mechanical problems; a buyer should consider the condition of the typewriter before purchasing.
