Found a small collection of vintage cocktail swizzlers probably collected by some businessman who went on sales trips.

  1. Congratulations on your type-in. Looks like everyone enjoyed the event. But..no pictures or you and Tori?

  2. Thanks for sharing, Ted. We’ll do it again soon!

  3. wow that rocket type looks much better! Many thanks. It’s always great to see you two and meet someone new besides. Erik appears to be recoiling from my schoolmaster stare.

  4. I enjoyed this post, what a cool idea to organize a type-in in Arizona.

    That St. Vinnie Sterling you found looks very clean. Congrars.

  5. I’d say four is a pretty large number for a Type-In, from my experience at least :-) Looks like you all had a great time and thanks for the directions to Key Snap.

  6. This looks like fun, and hey, we are ALL the Typerati!

    i did not know about Key Snap, I will add it to my blogroll.
