Vintage Singer Sewing machine

Not to sure if it’s nostalgia or that I am noticing allot of new shops, stores, pop up bars, cafes, antique road show (not my ideal Saturday night viewing). But, the antique Singer sewing machine has earnt it strips next to well placed Apple imac or ibook.

It seemed to have conjured up respect to even be in shop windows draped with selvage jeans imported from Japan. The sewing machine has simliar notes to that of a single malt scotch – so how much would one expect to pay for this prestige items.1941 Singer machine, model #99 – spotted one on Ebay for around 300 US. Similiar pricing to a single malt scotch – does it get better with age.

I am now actively seeking a Singer sewing machine I have spotted one that I am feverish waiting on Ebay to complete. Is there any items that carry old world charm that you are looking for. After this purchase my next assignment will be a tattoo gun +materialsleuth+
