Happy Friday everyone!  Today’s Friday Favorites {Inventory Inspiration} will feature vintage typewriters.  We currently have one listed in our inventory, but will soon be adding a second.  I remember years and years ago first typing on my Grandmothers old electric typewriter.  In fact, it’s in part how I learned how to keyboard.  One of my first jobs out of high school was working at the World Trade Center Alaska.  We had an old manual typewriter that we used to use for completing forms.  About twice a year we’d have interns come in from either high school or college international trade programs.  I will never forget one intern who sat in front of the typewriter and asked “how do you turn this thing on?”  She kept looking on the back for the on-off switch!  It was quite funny, and even funnier watching her try to use it!

The eclectic mix of assorted bottles, the globe and this modern vintage Underwood typewriter make for a great guest “book” table.  {source: Green Wedding Shoes}

Underwood vintage typewriter prop

I love the look of old Underwood typewriters.  This one is paired with gorgeous flowers and a few vintage cameras.  {source: Style Me Pretty}

Aside from the obvious, aren’t those letters just adorable!  Your guest book table doesn’t need to be elaborate, as shown here with just a sprinkling of flowers in bud vases.  {source: Style Me Pretty}

typewriter prop and vintage cameras

The vintage typewriter here is used as a prop paired with a stunning mix of vintage Brownie cameras (we have a few, ourselves!).  This couple used a traditional guest book, but check out that rustic wood sign!  {source: Rock-n-Roll Bride}

This vintage Corona, similar to the one we currently have in stock is stunning against the turquoise vase and very ornate framed picture of the couple.  {source: Style Me Pretty}

vintage typewriter guest book

Going out with a bang is my favorite display.  What an amazing way to dress up your “table” by using an old vintage desk, books, old library card holder, succulents and other potted plants!  {source: 100 Layer Cake}

Hopefully these give you a few ideas on alternatives to a traditional guest book using typewriters!  Do you have any other ideas you’d like to share?
