My girls are bargain hunters, just like me. Late spring, summer, and fall are yard sale season around here. A few weeks ago, we attended an Estate Sale (where most of the contents of a house are for sale) run by a lady who does this for a business. I signed up for her emails and now I get advance notice of her sales. There was one near us this morning and it said they had "sewing items" so I thought we'd check it out.
I was hoping to find some patterns or books, maybe a little fabric, but look what followed me home instead!
It's a "Modern" Standard Electric Syncomatic Sewing Machine. I didn't know if it worked when we bought it, but I hoped it would. I plugged it in and the light came on, but the knee-pressed pedal didn't do anything. Boo hoo.
Then I tightened all the plugs inside and it worked!!
It took a long time for me to figure out how to thread it.
It came with this nice little table with a pull-out drawer.
Here is the stitching, which is quite nice! It goes forward and backward and you can adjust the stitch length. That's all it does!!
I can't find a date on it at all, but I'm guessing the 1930s from the style? What do you think? Would you have paid $30 for it?? I am happy with this great deal!!
