For the last 16 years, we've been living on the Spanish Costa del Sol, enjoying the sunny weather, bringing up our two sons, four rescued dogs and combining our passions into one fulfilling journey. We've always liked exceptional things, and we always start each of our trips with a visit to a local flea market where we hunt for treasures. The idea of having our own shop appeared many years ago during our trip to Amsterdam, but at that time we couldn't have dreamt about selling our bits and pieces to such distant countries as New Zealand, China, USA or Sri Lanka! Now thanks to the Internet anything is possible!
We named it El Granero* Typewriter Gift Shop and that’s how our it was born! For the last 5 years, we have been running our own workshop where we offer a professional typewriter service. At the beginning, it wasn’t easy to say good-bye to our typewriters but with the time we learned to appreciate it. We started receiving emails from first clients! "WOW! amazing customer service! Thank You!" Maybe it will sound as cliché, but our customer's satisfaction as our top priority and the key was our products' quality! Just imagine delivering almost 2000 intricate machines to new homes thousands of miles away... on time and in perfect shape! It was extremely complicated but we did it!
We shipped safely overseas to over 60 countries and our machines are displayed in museums, galleries and hundreds of them are in private collections around the world. Our Pink Olivetti Lettera 32 is in Lady Gaga's hands, a set of custom-made Olivetti Letteras 35 on Eddie Vedder's desk and our Lilac Olivetti Lettera 25 in Ruby Rose's house.
The list is growing and more and more people are inspired!
Thousands of romantic love letters and greeting cards were written on our typewriters.
A typewriter is a machine, right! but with a soul! It is your heavy-duty best friend... Your feelings, thoughts, the keys and the touch of your fingers ...it will take minutes, hours, years... Imagine, your stories, your memories, your heritage.
In the future, it will be a perfect gift for someone you love.
.... A new story will begin :)
All You need is love and a good typewriter!
Best Regards from Southern Spain
