Default Found Old Singer Treadle Machine on side of road

I know it's not in perfect condition, but the needle moves up and down...Not sure what to do with it now. It has a wooden cover. I need time to investigate.

Sounds like maybe a coffin top? I hope you can get her working.

When I read your subject line I said to myself, "I bet she's in NY"....yup!!! It's hard to believe how little value vintage sewing machines have here. I have a roadside freebie treadle, too, and it's quite nice and a wonderful stitcher. I have seen listings on CL for years of treadles for hundreds of dollars......they just don't sell. I'd love to see a picture of yours.

I've tried a few times to post a pic, but am unable to for whatever reason. It is black background on the machine with all those flowers on it. Yes, it's a coffin top. The design on the 4 drawers match the ridges on the wooden cover. Has a swing out drawer under the machine that has some do-hickies and do-dads in it as well as a wooden cylinder with 4 more needles in it, and a prop up extension on the left side.
