#Hempicureanchronicles – Our Experiment With a Public Typing Station
Posted to News
We had a dilemma on our hands. When we opened our store we brought in hemp paper, hoping people would see it as an alternative to what they were using. Unfortunately there did not seem to be much interest in it. What were we to do with these reams of hemp paper? We thought, why not give people the opportunity to go old school and use a typewriter with hemp paper?
What a great idea it was!
Over the last year we have collected volumes of writings, some poignant, some humorous, some emotional, and yes, some crude, rude, and inflammatory. The important thing is that it got people engaged. Whether out of nostalgia’s sake, a love of writing, or just never having seen or used a typewriter before, it has attracted tons of attention. We now plan on sharing some of what we have collected. This will be an ongoing blog so keep checking back. We like to call it the Hempicurean Chronicles. #hempicureanchronicles
We have left the typos in whenever possible as we feel it adds to the context.
One day at the typewriter…
