    I have 3 vintage toy sewing machines. Two of them are Singer's Model 20. I paid about $75 apiece for them. One of my TSM's is a Damascus that I paid $45 for.

    Those people are asking double - at least - for what those machines are worth! If you want a TSM, just keep your eyes open and one will come along!

    Here is a link to our TSM photo shop! Vintage children's sewing machines Enjoy!

    They are asking too much, for sure. Look around on the internet first.

    yep, the only part that is missing is the belt guard. Someday I will find one...

    I love the sound it makes when running

    Steve, I just stumbled upon your reply, nearly two years since you posted it. I have one of these Singer 20 Machines and have not been able to find an instruction manual for it. The link you provided doesn't seem to be working for me. Any other way I might be able to find it? Thanks!
