The One with the Flea Market Find

You guys, I went to a flea market today and bought the cutest thing ever!

foto 2It’s a late fifties Vulcan Classic Toy Sewing Machine. I couldn’t just leave it there 🙂 My boyfriend didn’t want me to buy anything but he wasn’t paying attention and I smuggled it into the house… A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

The lady who sold it to me didn’t know if it was still working and after some internet research and upon further inspection, I don’t think it ever will. Somewhere along the road the batteries have run out. But that’s okay, I’ll keep this one as a decorating piece and maybe I’ll find another one some other day.

Here it is next to my Bernina. Isn’t it tiny 🙂

  1. So cute! Toy sewing machines are great decoration once they stop working. Glad you were able to rescue it from the flea market!

    Does it work if you hand-crank it?

  2. I love it! I have a toy one I bought “for my kids”. hehe. Then, my mom bought a Hello Kitty one for my daughter and honestly, neither works, but they’re so cute!
