But I digress. We went to several this weekend and I found some pretty cool stuff.
I got several items for my $1 goal from the list -- a Mouse Trap game ($.50), a puzzle of the U.S. ($.50), Madeline in London ($.25), and two baby toys ($1 each). The baby toys were not a super good price (for yard sales) but still were much less expensive than if purchased new.
But the thing I was most excited about was this:
This is a Franklin rotary sewing machine (apparently sold by Sears & Roebuck before the Kenmore brand). I don't know how old it is. I believe it was made by White (same manufacturer as my treadle machine). The scroll work is really intricate .. lots of Egyptian stuff, scarabs. I didn't get a good picture. I need a manual though to figure out how it works. If anyone out there has one or knows where I can get one, please point me in the right direction.
This is the cabinet the sewing machine sits in. It needs a little repair but is kind of nice. My YD needed a table/dresser in her bedroom and this fits perfectly. I thought she would hate it, but she loves it!
Oh yeah, the cabinet/sewing machine cost $30. I feel pretty good about it.
