Hints of the 1940’s: Vintage Typewriter Keys

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

This is one of my favorite recent Martha Stewart Wedding ideas. This couple bought vintage typewriter keys off ebay, and used them to show what table people were seated out. David and I both love this, and are considering it, and other ways to use vintage typewriter keys. Cuff links, anyone?

    If you have a chance, I’ve seen some really cool (and affordable) typewriter key jewelry here:
    I’ve only been to the Haight location, but it’s a really great shop (for typwriter jewelry AND other cool things)!!!
