Yes, have a closer inspection. I'm hoping it's a tablemobile, but would be happy for you if it is a sewing machine grin

Oh, did you get it? My mum has a fantastic old singer machine. Only sewing machine I have managed not to break blush

My deceased uncles old house has a manual Singer sewing machine with the foot pedal in its own cabinet. Is it worth something, or do people like them for vintage value?

House can't be sold as its interstate, or something like that, so been as there empty since 2007.

Oh. Go and get it. The longer you wait te more chance you'll miss it!

JollyPurpleGiant Thu 04-Apr-13 08:48:38

Go! I'm very jealous!

cheesecheeseplease Thu 04-Apr-13 09:31:14

right it's an electric singer in a dark wood table says 99k underneath the badge at the front

Yes go and get it but ask the person who 'owns' the skip first. I used to hoik all sorts of stuff out of skips to sell on eBay. Always aske first though.

cheesecheeseplease Thu 04-Apr-13 09:34:55

I tried cece but the house is empty I shall put a note through the door

SoupDragon Thu 04-Apr-13 09:37:34

I would be tempted to take it now and let them know.
