We have restored and sold thousands of working manual typewriters across many brands and decades and love to help our customers explore how the vintage-analogue world can inspire and enhance a slower and better way of life. Whether you are looking to acquire a piece of history, add to a collection, buy a beautiful gift for someone or seeking creativity in your writing, we invite you to discover our online store.
Back in 2012 we started restoring and selling our vintage typewriters at the Canberra and Kirribilli collectable markets in Australia. We were excited to see that our young customers were just as passionate and interested in these vintage writing machines as we were.
In early 2017 we returned to the UK countryside to expand our typewriter restoration business. Charlie Foxtrot Australia continues on with all typewriters shipped directly from our workshop here in Dorset and our typewriter ribbons (new) are posted in Australia via our distributor in NSW.
Over the past 9 years we have gained a wealth of knowledge on restoring & servicing manual typewriters and have been very fortunate to know and work with a small band of experienced professional typewriter engineers both here in the UK and in Australia with over 150 years experience between them.
We are passionate about what we do and get excited seeing our typewriters used in cinema & on many TV production dramas. Our typewriters are acquired among poets, journalists, screen writers, designers, vintage collectors, artists, scrapbookers, and creative writers who just can't achieve the same quality of writing with digital technology.
But mostly we sell to those amongst us who are tired of computerised engagement & apps alike and perhaps just want to write a letter (the old way).
