You'll Never Guess What I Found for Free!!

You'll never guess what was sitting on the side of the road for FREE today when I was driving home from class!!



Can you guess what it is??

 

Yep!  It's a sewing cabinet!!!!  I pulled over and opened it up a bit and thought - OMG!!  

 You can see the sewing area and serger area and everything.

The gentleman that owned it was really nice and came running over to help me load it into my car.  he said that they had cleaned out a woman who had passed away house and this was in it - and they didn't want it - so they put it out on the road for FREE!  He said that they have a few more boxes of sewing supplies but they are going to look them through first.  I gave him my card and told him to give me a call if they wanted to get rid of the boxes.

 

Here is the sewing machine area.  I think all the odd holes are for older sewing machines?

 

It's clear this is a Singer cabinet!  Look at the thread holders.

 

Look at the hydrolic lift!!!!!!  It works really, really well and just pushes to each of the three positions (sunk completely, flat to the sewing table and raised)  with just a gentle push of your finger tips.  I mean how lucky can a girl get!

I don't know what I am going to do with this but I COULD NOT leave it there.  I'll find a use for it - don't worry.  I'm sooo lucky!

Very VERY nice!!! I am so glad a nice person who is also one of my online friends found it. ((grin)) I should be so lucky.
I am saving my pennies to buy a Gidget II from Arrow cabinets. I wish I had bought it instead of the one I got. At least the one I got can be used for the embroidery machine when I get the Gidget.

yay! That is some awesome treasure! :-D

Gene Black you will love the Gidiget II. I won one over a year ago and when I have time to sew that is my table of choice. Do make sure that you buy the insert for your sewing machine. Check out Arrow sewing cabinets on facebook They give a gidget away when they reach certain number of likes.

I hope you like the cabinet that you found. If you do not have a use for it, I am sure that I can find a use for it in Illinois.
