Was someone looking for one of these recently? Mind you the bid has shot up from £50 to £221 in the time it's taken to post this.

It was me @Deafoldbat I eventually got a black one  :) as I wanted the bigger fold up table.  I am still liking the white though, they are so cute.  :vintage:
Willing but not always able :)

I've got a watch on that one, I'm just curious what it will eventually go for. As of last night it was still at £221. I absolutely definitely will not be going after it, if and I really mean IF I buy another machine it'll be either a Singer hand crank, a fiddle base or a treadle. I've got 11 machines now, I can't find time to use any of them so tell me why I'd love to add those 3 pleeeaaase 😢

For the US it's a pretty good deal.

I have 2 black ones as it is, and I use one and need to fix the other.  I'll wind up giving the latter to my daughter one day and letting her use it to sew on.

I want one too, but its definitely a want rather than a need.  Britain is a bit far to ship one though.  They are pretty rare down here.
