Of all of the things I sell in my Etsy shop, there is one item that is by far the most popular — toy sewing machines from the 1940s.
Below are some of the ones that have come and gone in my shop. Made to last, these relics were produced post WWII in Berlin Germany's U.S. Zone.
I am partial to ones made by Kayanee that have flower decals. But they are getting harder to find.
I'm always pleased when these charming toys find happy new homes. Of course, I do have a couple that are keepers on display in my studio's sewing corner.
My latest discovery is the toy sewing machine shown below. It has the cutest decal.
This Artcraft model, along with a blue near mint Kayanee, will be making an appearance in my Etsy shop sometime this week. I also have several other vintage items that need to be listed. I better get started!
