    picked one this summer just like your second listing for $5, no attachments and it is in a carrying case, but did hace a water logged booklet with it.

    Chris they would charge more for that service... and it is pretty cool to be able to knit or crochet on a sowing machine... maybe even weave...

    I've got one of those! It's on my front porch if you want it. I haven't gotten around to taking it to the ReStore yet. It's been painted, but is in nice shape for all of that.

    There's no such thing as too many sewing machines!

    Someday, I will find one for a reasonable price. That's what I keep telling myself anyway.

    "Hand treadle sewing machine. Table model with carry case. Very few of this model made, over 100 years old in good condition."

    I just want to reply with: No, No, No, and Are you kidding?
    Hand Treadle? Singer didn't know the meaning "rare". I'm 99% sure it's not 100, never mind over 100. The bent wood cases in 1912 looked different, and that decal set is newer. And $300? I almost choked on my tea!

    Sure made my heart go pitter pat to see all of those machines. But it was sad to see them in a pile. Oh My! Yes, I do hope they find good homes also.
