Flea Market Find

A friend of mine likes to sew with a variety of vintage machines. I quickly sent her a photo of this one since they asked $30 for it. She said to get it and I did for $25. It's got lots of attachments too.

How cool is that! Good deal. Your blog post showed up much quicker in Bloglovin' than it did on my sidebar.

Was Liberty this weekend? If so, pooh. But then again, I don't need another thing!

Lynn said...

Feeling a bit envious here. Terrific buy, has she tried it out yet?

Sherrill said...

Was pokin' around on ebay and there's a hot pink one that looks almost exactly like the one you got but it was $150!! You got a GREAT deal sounds like.

What a wonderful find and a good price to boot. I like the older sewing machine as there parts are all metal. Today machine have lots of hard plastic parts. Looks like this machine will be a good one for some quilting. LenZie

How cool is that and what a great deal at $25!!! Bet I know who it's for...someone in Florida perhaps?

It's still too cold for our outdoor flea markets in our neck of the woods but I'm looking forward to finding a few treasures soon as well.

DId you manage to find any for yourself?

My mom used to have a machine in that color. I think it was a White. Hey, what's up with you and Kim both being contributors or=n this blog? That must be new.

Wow, I type so bad. Did you figure out my magic words?
