I was recently in an antique store where I found an old Davis treadle sewing machine for sale. It was the actual sewing machine that looked to still be on the original table. I tried it out and it seemed to work rather well. I don't know much about antique sewing machines, so I can't say how old it is or what model (I didn't think to ask the lady working at the time). They wanted $200, good buy or no?
