The Latest News

Wow! I just realized that it has been 8 months since I last posted.  We bought a fixer-upper house last summer 

and my attention has been focused on painting, repairing, buying appliances, flooring, cooktop and countertop.  When the new gas cooktop was installed, we found that the gas line buried in the concrete slab foundation had corroded and was leaking.  We had to have a new gas line run through the attic and down to the kitchen.  

  We finally have everything the way we want it and what did we do?  Decided we would prefer to live in Florida!  On Tuesday, we listed the house for sale with Century 21; on Wednesday, a family toured it and wrote an offer; on Thursday, we accepted the offer.  Now, we are scurrying to figure out what to do with all our “stuff”.  Do we want to ship it to Florida or get rid of it?  We already have a fully-furnished home in Florida, so we don’t NEED anything there but we might want to replace some of the Florida furniture with what’s in Maryland.  Anyway, we have six weeks to figure it out and get it done.

  That brings me back on topic.  I am no longer going to have space to store 80 parts machines and shelves of new reproduction parts so I have shut down Old Sewing Machines store on Etsy and am listing everything on eBay just to get rid of it.  Anything that’s not sold by July 21st gets donated to a friend who will give them a good home. 
  If you want to see what I have listed on eBay, click Featherweight Goodie Package.  When you get to the listing of the Featherweight Goodie Package, click "See Other Items" on the right side of the screen and all my listings will appear.  I might still have more things to list, so check back but all my auctions will be ended the evening of July 20.

Lots of life changes for you, and quickly. Hope you get everything settled easily. Sorry you won't be doing much with vintage machines, but, I'm sure you'll keep a few of them.
