Vintage Baby Hermes Typewriter for sale

1940's model (possibly earlier) - similar to the model Melville Jacoby used to type up his news reports from Bataan in WWII
Works fine. Ribbons can still be bought for this model. 
I wouldn't part with this but I need the money. Please see the description in my profile. Thank you. 
Please click on this link to purchase if interested:

UPDATE: I actually couldn't find anyone to buy this so I donated it to an animal rescue to be auctioned off to benefit their furry residents. 

Foxfire Books 1 - 11 for sale

I am offering books 1 - 11 of the Foxfire series. 1 - 6 & 9 are first editions. Good material for 
those who want to live off the grid, prepare for coming disasters or just indulge in Appalachian 
folklore and history. 
From the Foxfire website:  

The Foxfire Series

With nearly 9 million copies in print, The Foxfire Book and its eleven companion 
volumes stand memorial to the people and the vanishing culture of the Southern 
Appalachian Mountains, brought to life for readers through the words of those who 
were born, lived their lives, and passed away there—words collected by high school 
students who wanted to be a part of their community and preserve their heritage. 
All 12 volumes in the regular series are anthologies of Foxfire Magazine articles 
written by Rabun County high school students over the magazine's 40-year history, 
usually expanded through follow-up interviews and other research.

Fibromyalgia sufferer reaching out for help

From Site:
"Hello, honestly I don't know where to begin. I just turned 18 and I live in Ohio. In the past few years I've been dealing with a lot of medical problems including Chiari Malformation, which I had surgery for but still causes me pain. I also suffer from fibromyalgia and I've tried so many different medications to help treat the pain and nothing helps in the slightest. My mother and I have decided to move to Hawaii to seek alternative treatment, and because we have a lot of family there that we never get to see. My mother also suffers from fibromyalgia. I'm in pain everyday all day which has effected me to the point that I can't work or drive. I'm tired of the pain. Because of this, I'm stressed and I have anxiety attacks everyday without warning because I just don't know what to do. We don't have health insurance because we can't afford it and we don't qualify for any type of help. Please help us make this move."
