About Us

 Since launching in 2012 the Charlie Foxtrot online store has become Australia's premier seller of restored and working manual typewriters with hundreds of machines successfully shipped all over the country . We also specialise in working rotary phones , working as well as collectable vintage cameras , wall maps, desk accessories and new typewriter ribbons to help you complete your "analogue " creative space so that your work , hobby or play can be the best it can be.


Based in Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW we also regularly have a Charlie Foxtrot pop up stall at Sydney's Kirribilli market and Canberra's Old Bus Depot market  . Please see the Contact Us page for details and dates .
      The creative forces behind the brand "Charlie Foxtrot" are Philip and Julie Chapman  who have extensive retail and design experience and are passionate about the 1930's , 40's and 50's . Philip & Julie have recently headed to the UK to launch Charlie Foxtrot there and Bruce & Sue Walker have joined the team to run things here in Australia.
       Our central inspiration for Charlie Foxtrot comes from the young men and women who served in the RAF during  the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940 and whose exploits not only captivated the world but turned the tide of the war .
We hope there is something we stock that can add a flourish to your personal life or provide a unique gift for someone special while at the same time providing a connection with the past .
