I think the choice of the 870 is a good one, given your current anticipation of use. By the time you are ready to move up, the 1280 or the 890 will probably be cheaper. In terms of where you buy, give some thought to buying the 870 directly from Epson. I would speculate that shipping might be cheaper (the total price from Epson is $124.95 including shipping) and they have a strong incentive to keep you happy. Regarding materials: you should be able to use anything in the 870 you can use in the 890 EXCEPT any material tha REQUIRES 2880 dpi (I can't think of anything, myself). One other thing you don't get with the 870 is full borderless printing. Regarding the 1270: it is essentially a big 870 with the ability to print bigger pictures. Given your image source, I would look at the quality of my scans to determine if I can actually use the size. Only you can decide what are the major factors.
