On this beautiful Summer Sunday, we headed to my favorite auction house -- Stenzel Brothers. Oh, yeah -- COUNT ME IN...
|On this day -- they have FOUR RINGS going at one time. This is the outside auctioneer...|
|This is NOT the Featherweight -- but -- nice, eh?|
|This IS the Featherweight...a 1953 in nearly perfect condition...|
|Hummm...people would actually STEAL the bobbin case?? (bastards!)|
|Deena is sitting in the fancy room -- the Featherweight is on the front table. She is not moving...|
|However -- I WAS FREE TO ROAM. Cool card table set, eh?|
|This is the third ring -- a room with household things, furniture, dishes, silverware, etc.|
|Really. You NEVER know what you're gonna find at an auction.|
|The FOURTH auctioneer was in the room with all the jewelry, purses, books, etc.|
|My friend, Jana -- the only woman auctioneer I know.|
|I'm glad I don't collect this stuff...|
|Although, there were many things for me to bid on.|
|Because a girl can NEVER have too many embroidered pillowcases!|
|They were selling a fifth wheel RV on this day.|
|Back to the #1 room...Deena is being very patient...she is NOT leaving until they sell that Featherweight...|
|When I heard Jason say they were selling the Singer Featherweight, I ran to the room, but stood in the back...|
|SHE WON, SHE WON!! Deena just bought her SECOND Featherweight...|
|It had the original can of oil, tube of lube, the box of attachments looks brand new.|
|Thanks to Jason -- the bobbin case was intact...|
|YES...it was a VERY good day!!|
So OF COURSE she needed a second one!!
You might think that's the END of my Featherweight Collecting blogs...
But -- believe it or not -- things are about to move at WARP SPEED...
