    Well, I see a beautiful adding machine – and some kind of strange device which I believe is used to refill the ink in archaic writing devices known as “pencils.”

  2. It’s a receipt or cashier’s check imprinter. And yes Premier Bank still has one as well which is occasionally still used as well as an electric typewriter. When the computers go on the blink we still need to take care of customers, so these items are still necessary! 🙂

    I’m thinking I see a postage meter in there as well.

    Index card boxes and filing cabinets. I still have a filing cabinet at home but the only thing I add to it is receipts, primarily for electronic gear. And even paper receipts are going away. The last time I was at the Apple store, they emailed me my receipt.

    Pens! I use a pen so little these days that my penmanship has regressed to pre-3rd grade level. When I do have to write something, it ends up being this weird hybrid of cursive and printing. Sister Mary Francis would be so ashamed of me.

      Griff- I’m glad to hear that your world is approaching the paperless nirvana promised many years ago by the computer proponents. My world, unfortunately, is drowning in the reams or reports printed out daily for my perusal. And, since I cannot drag my computer all over the two acres of store in which I work, I go through many pens in a year just writing down products for people. Have any extras lying around drying up that you care to get rid of?

    Ahhh but it is an electric one! That one never made sense to me.

      Robbie- No pencil sharpener is pointless!

    I have been guilty of this forever, but I do it for the look of it. We create as we go.
