My writing station




I apologize for the lighting in these pictures. Too late for any natural light from the windows...




The controls of the radio. There are a few small spaces to the side of this, where I keep letters and my notebooks of story ideas. I could not get a picture of the speaker on the underside, but I will say that it is a bit damaged. This radio does not work in the least, but really I do not listen to the radio anyway.








And no, that clock does not display the proper time. I found a dozen of these in the dumpster of a store we had nearly completed building, and snagged one. It ran for a few hours, but died. Hey, it's...1:44 somewhere!

A nearly famous typewriter




This is one of the drafts. One of the papers in the case has the poem in its entirety, I believe, but it is in storage in the closet of the typewriter room at the moment.




I am going to have to cover up that sticker on the side that says 107DB. Otherwise, I will be forced to wear earplugs, as the threshold is 85DB. Ugh...

The whole ball of wax








Felt weird taking pictures of a camera...


Included accessories. From left to right: Well, I am not sure what this first thingy is...then, 100mm lens, 35mm lens, power viewfinder(?), and two Argus C2's, which I think are some sort of prismatic lens. The lens on the camera is a 50mm.


'The whole ball of wax', as the seller colloquially put it.




These people do not believe in price tags...except for things that are black, I suppose, and that is just because their sharpie will not show up. I cannot tell you how many prices we have had to scrub off of pottery from this place.

A trip to the Book Barn & photography inquiries




I wish I had remembered to take pictures. These were the best I could find on google, and they really portray the shop the way it is. A great thanks goes out to the photographer.



Really though, how could you give a high price to her...




The camera in questions. Suggestions?
