Hmm..I could put away my flytying material and use that area for my sewing.
Here's my sewing cabinet I bought with a table top that extends out about 7-8' long with the machine in the middle..

Cool piece of furniture. I like the way the chair looks like part of the cabinet when pushed underneath! Nice find!

Actually..the left side is one door that opens up the full height with two shelves..for material and projects.The right side is individual drawers..all in old looking oak.The seat does have two large drawers under it.I need to get a nice piece of leather and unscrew the seat cushion from underneath and redo it..can't stand the yellow vinyl.
What was really cool..all this was in it!They forgot to clean out the thing before slapping a $25 price tag on it!

I can resell the feet/most accessories easily and get what I need(and pay me back my $25) for my machine..but the 13 steel bobbins and 27 needles(including a couple doubles) do fit my machines.

I came across your posting regarding vintage Campways Folding Camp Candle Lanterns. I have two of these lanterns that I purchased when I was a Boy Scout 35 years ago. They are in good shape – they have the original mica windows. I recently lost my job and am selling a few items. Are you interested? Please make me an offer.
