    Toy Sewing Machines

    Here are pictures of my collection of toy sewing machines. I have the one I played with as a child and have added more along the way.

    My mom likes to pick them up for me. The older ones 1950s and so on are around $50 in the antique shops

    A very nice collection. I wish I had mine from childhood. We're not sure what happened to it.

    There is one in a local antique shop here, but I thought $95 was too much! Still think so.
