I never knew till last week that Treadle Sewing Machines came in such lovely cabinets. I saw one for sale in Florida and Rebekah and Robert said they would pick it up for me so it would not get ruined in shipping. Alas, that one was sold for more than I could budget.
Robert, our E-bay wizard found this one and it is actually in the same state they live in. Rebekah called last night with the number and to let me know that the sale ended in a few hours. I looked it up and knowing that I could not stay up till the auction was over, I entered the amount I could budget and turned off the computer.
Bless his heart, Robert was alert and when I was outbid, he added a few dollars to my bid and won the machine and cabinet for me. Now he and Rebekah have to bring this lovely machine home, refinish the cabinet if it needs it and tune the machine so that it works. I have thought I would enjoy one of the older Singers with the red decals and now I have one. Can't you see this big smile?
