This antique treadle sewing machine is a true rarity and a bargain. Sewing machines of this type date back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
This particular machine is particularly special due to its brand, New Home. Unlike Singer, the most well known brand, New Home was bought out and renamed by a Japanese country, Janome, making merchandise under the New Home name harder to find.
Advertising images for New Home sewing machines dating around 1890 show a sewing machine much like the one one sale now.
Priced at only $55, it features five pull out drawers, a pull open top, full iron treadle and of course an antique sewing mechanism.
It can be found inside a barn at 386 Middle Road. There is no sign for the business, so don't drive by it!
