    Red face Look what I found!!!

    I stopped at a moving sale the other day. First thing I asked was, do you have any fabric. the lady said, yes, there is a box under that table. Well, I looked and sure nuf, there it was. Whole box for $1.00. Down from it was a bag marked, $1.00. Looked in it and low and behold; more fabric. Yea!!! So, I scanned the tables. Found all kinds of things. But, my attention was drawn to a small red box. this little box is just about 6 X 8 inches square and maybe 5 inches tall. My curiosity got the best of me. so, I flipped the little latch. Wow!! What did I find inside?? Before you scroll down, look at the box and see if you can guess what is inside. The price on the box said $7.00. But, I got it for $4.00. Aint it cute?

    I found one almost identical on e-bay. The starting bid was 44.00. It was made in Japan in the 50's. It is a child's toy. It runs on batteries. That is all I know so far. I have to get some batteries. But it uses a size 11 needle and even had a spool of thread on th wooden spool with it. I think it makes a chain stitch. But, not sure.

    Does it run ok for you? It is really cute, and even if it didn't work you could use it for decoration in your sewing room.
