My New Vintage Sewing Machine!



I found the coolest vintage sewing machine at the Swap Meet last weekend. Check it out, it's a a "Sovereign" Made in Japan. I'm guessing from around 1940-1950. It's one of my favorite colors, Mineral Green. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, The gentlemen told me it works, but needs a new belt. I figured, even if it didn't work, the $20 price tag would still be worth it as a decoration in my shop:)

Oh and I finished putting the knobs on the dresser. My fancy Cash Register will sit a top:)

Have a Wonderful Weekend. I promise more updates on Shop progress next week!

I love your new machine! I have one very similar, except it is green and came from Montgomery Ward. It was originally bought in 1958 and works great. Funny, mine cost $20 too : D
