I hope DH doesnt' read this. Or my Mum or sisters rofl. I sort of bid on and won a Gladiola treadle sewing machine at auction.
I have just a "few" machines already including a working Singer treadle machine. When I saw this one come up at a local auction and so cheap, I put a bid in. And won it at my maximum bid of $6.00. Yes, six dollars.
It's not looking too pretty and I have no idea if it works. I get to pick it up on Tuesday. I'll have more pics by then, but here is the auction house pic:
I'll see if I can get her working and all polished up and put back together as much as possible and then one or other of my treadles will have to go.
There may even be a giveaway (for locals only).
