Did my junk shop typewriter earn its keep?

Back in February, I wrote about the ideas you can sometimes get from objects in a junk shop – specifically a typewriter which cost me $15. I was asked to report on success – did it pay it’s way? After 2 months of sales, I can report that it did!

Total earnings from the typewriter shots now that my iStock results are available are $47 – so a solid $32 profit! I must admit that the sale that pushed it well into positive territory was actually a video from Adobe Stock for $28 a few days ago. So there is another tip – when you have bought your object from the junk shop, take both still photos and video clips of it!

    Well done Steve. Good to hear!

  3. Nice one! Are you thinking about doing more variations of typing? I like the fake news but how about the classic “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…”? 😀

      I did the “All work and no play” words as a still image. Not sure what the use case would be for the full phrase or as a video, to be honest.

I'm always interested in what you think - please let me know!
