We headed out to Apple Annie’s – a huge antique mall, just north of Leavenworth. To our surprise, parking was extremely limited – because there was a flea market in the parking lot!
Booth after booth, so much to see, thank heaven there was time!
I spotted a couple of items that looked interesting – and then we went inside. Oh, my, so much more to see, impossible to even begin to take it all in – and pictures, well, the walls were so high…..
Anyway, as we wandered through the commercial booths (as opposed to the ‘non-commercial’ – and I use that term loosely – outside, I spotted an item the same as one I’d seen outside…….at five times the price.
Well, we couldn’t believe our luck when we got outside again, and it was still there – so it’s coming home with us:
The case is in fabulous shape!
Isn’t she a beauty – and do you see the knee pedal, that detaches from the front bottom right side:
And the cord detaches – just look at these old round plugs:
The machine tilts open so the cord and knee pedal can be stored inside the case. But it’s definitely not a Featherweight – not meant to travel!
I checked the Singer site (it’s their 160th anniversary), and have received a certificate authenticating it as being manufactured in 1910. I had already done that for my other antiques machine:
which we already knew was manufactured in 1895.
I can hardly wait to get home and put this one on display!
