    That's almost as bad as the one that I saw at an antique store. It was a treadle, and as usual, I was snooping in the drawers. In one of them, there was a bunch of wool, and rodent crap. Tons of it. I was right cheesed off. Here's your antique sewing machine with a side of Hantavirus. What are people thinking?

    maybe the machine was in the antique store a long time - store has a problem with creatures?

    at least they aren't asking a huge amount of money for this antique but still over priced for a machine that needs "some" TLC. I can't figure out if it's a bad paint job or there's also mold

    That does look like mold in the 2nd picture.

    Am I "wrong" for kind of liking this?

    Well its a Wheeler Wilson and I would never do this to one of those, but at least this one is done rather tastefully. It isn't the ugliest thing I've ever seen...though I would still prefer the original condition. This is the same cabinet I have.

    Naw,.. it was a new arrival. I haunt that one quite a bit. The whole "booth" was new.
