Yesterday afternoon Vince got home from work and said there was a three family garage sale in a subdivision not far from our house and he wanted to go. NO!! NO!!! We don’t need more stuff in this house. I always feel bad when I tell him “no” so I said ok . . but we’re not getting anything! It’s an old White treadle machine and it sews beautifully! I can’t set it up til Vince re-attaches a cable that holds the machine up. When you open the cover, as it folds out, the sewing machine comes up and the little wooden section in front that says “White” goes up underneath the machine.
It’s all in good (not fantastic) shape. I’d love to have the cabinet refinished by someone who does great work. It’s been refinished and while it doesn’t look bad, it could look better.
Look at the tension dial! Love it . . I think many of us would have better luck with tension if we had a similar tension gauge on our machines.
This little box was in one of the drawers.
The contents of the box. Isn’t that just so amazing?
A Greist buttonholer in a perfect box.
A very old instruction manual.
Last but surely not least . . the machine! I’ll get better pictures of the machine and something special on the cabinet as soon as Vince gets that cable hooked up.
This surely made my day!!
