World Typewriter Day is on June 23 which is the anniversary of the granting of the U.S. patent to Christopher Latham Sholes in 1868. Probably at some point in our lives, when the electricity goes out, our phones are down, this is the one item that will survive. Typewriters are actually becoming a hot little item and I have seen prices at resale from $25.00 on up. People are reusing typewriters from display to jewelry. (See 18 Ways To Reuse Typewriters)

A fun thing to do would be set up a typewriter in the reception area and let people play and type on it.

This was used in a wedding, but the concept can be used in eyecare offices.

Don’t want to keep an old typewriter around, convert it into a planter and it can be forever, depending on your thumb color.

There are lots of advantages using vintage items, they are eye- catching and tell the story about your eyewear. In the case of typewriters, they  can be interactive if you put them in the reception room, can be reused or resold. A Win-Win
