Premium Investment Opportunity

Typewriter sale, today, 660 Plenty Road, Preston, from 11 a.m. As a merchant banker and investment adviser of international renown, I say sell your teapots now and get into typewriters while you still can.

I had two typewriters, a manual and an electric, but sold them both, as they had been unfortunately superceded by this here iMac, no matter the beauty of the mechanisms under discussion.

I don't know if anything could induce me to sell my teapots, but typewriters do have a certain romance about them and, I fancy, are even more romantic when you type with two fingers.

Anyone interested in part exchange for a very stylish, black-and-white art-deco, nearly-functioning accordion?

Kingsley: no, NO, NO! Now is the hour to buy typewriters, not sell them. I speak as a financial speculator and typewriter afficionada of infallible authority.

Hippo, I'll raise you a set of panpipes, the deepest of which is slightly squashed.

Eyrie, I understand. Sometimes sentiment gets in the way of judicious teapot selling. I can be like that too.
