  • Our Story

     

    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 learnt 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 was 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!
    (*English-The Barn)

    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

  • Frequently Asked Questions

     

    We've prepared a few of the most frequently asked questions that should help you during purchase and shipping process.

     

    Every typewriter you sell is in a working order?

    We are Premium shop and all our typewriters, apart from looking great, are in a perfect working order as all of them are repaired, adjusted, serviced and double-checked. Some original parts may be even replaced by parts from identical typewriters to make them looks better.

     

    When will my typewriter be shipped?

    The estimated shipping date is always available on the order form, usually it’s 3-7 working days after the purchase date for original typewriters and 1- 2 weeks for painted ones. For special custom orders ask us for an estimated time needed. If you need your typewriter earlier, contact us and we will see what can be done

     

    How long does the delivery take?

    It depends on the place of destination and the kind of a service you paid. Deliveries to Europe take 3-5 business days for Expedited shipping, 5-12 business days for Economy one. Overseas - 3-6 business days for Expedited shipping, 10-21 business days for Economy one. If you need it sooner, you can always contact us and we will see what can be done.

     

    Do you ship to the States, Canada or other distant places?

    Yes, we have already shipped our typewriter to more than 80 different countries around the world, so even if your country is not on our shipping price list, contact us and we will provide you an estimate.

     

    Is my product insured?

    Every shipping is covered with full insurance,.

     

    What accessories are included in my typewriter order?

    As it was mentioned before, all typewriters have a new ink ribbon installed, most of them an original carrying case or a bag, original or reprinted manual. Some of them have also original brushes included. All the details are always stated in the listing. We also offer a wide range of accessories like plastic or fabric dust covers, cleaning kits or additional ribbons or spools.

     

    Where can I get the ink ribbons for my typewriter?

    We always install a new ribbon prior to shipping so your typewriter will be ready to use the minute you unpack it. If you need more you can purchase them in our shop, we have them always available, they can be also easily found on Ebay or Amazon.​

     

    Can you find me a particular model of a typewriter that I was looking for?

    Yes, of course. We will treat it as a custom order, which has to be placed with a 30% of an estimated price, which depending on the model, might change in the process.

    Of course you will be informed of any change prior to the deal closure.

     

    What if I change my mind about the model or colour of my typewriter after my order is placed?

    If the typewriter is still in the process and there is still time to change it, we always try to be flexible, but you have to remember that some of the orders are quite unique or already packed, so whatever you want to change, always ask us first and we will see if it’s possible.
