I'm on my way home from work today and an acquaintance texts me and tells me that I just have to go into this thrift shop that I know why I'm in there when I see it. It's not a place I usually frequent because to me for a thrift shop they're *very* expensive.

I go in, and look around quick, didn't see anything and then... there she is. They wanted $120 for her, but for DH and I right now that's a *huge* purchase, so I text him a photo of her, and the price and he texts back, "buy it, Happy Valentines Day" :D

Without further commentary from me. Here's Valentina, named for the day I bought her. Everything with my new treadle is in working order - just need a belt. She's a Domestic brand and came with the sewing table.

The baggie at the bottom has some of the wood that broke off. The wood at the back is a shelf that goes on the door

I'm so thrilled! I don't know anything about the brand, but I couldn't let it go. Had to come home with me.
