URBAN LEGEND TYPEWRITERS

NOTE: If you need a typewriter serviced or repaired in time for Christmas, please make an appointment to drop it off at our shop by Friday, November 1st. Due to the volume of requests we receive this time of year, typewriters dropped off after this date can be expected back in January 2020. We appreciate your understanding during this busy time.

Looking for a unique gift to delight a writer, collector, romantic, hobbyist, or nostalgic in your life? You've come to the right place. At Urban Legend Typewriters, we sell refurbished typewriters of all ages and also offer cleaning and repair services, so you can make sure your typewriter is always in top condition.

 

Urban Legend Typewriters is WordPlay's social enterprise, which means 100% of proceeds go to supporting WordPlay's creative writing and storytelling programs. Interested in supporting the cause? Check out repair rates and available typewriters for sale below.

Please note that Urban Legend Typewriters has MOVED to 4234 Hamilton Avenue.
