What's New in The Featherweight Shop Vintage Collection - September 2021
by Christian Henry
Here at the Featherweight Shop we have quite the collection of vintage Singer items. Due to our remote location, very few customers have had the opportunity to see the many rare Singer items we have. This series of blog posts brings our collection out for all to see what new items we get in. Some of these items may be famous and recognizable, but we are sure there are others that very few have ever seen or heard of. For the month of September 2021, here are some of our recent finds:
This rare fan from 1898 is in grand condition with fascinating facts about Singer on the back.
We are pleased to have these beautiful little cards in our collection!
The Singer Almanacs are always fun to find and delightful to read. This one has a diagram in the back showing the Singer Building compared to the other prominent structures of the early 1900s - it tops them all!
This has no additional information on the back, but it is dainty at just five inches across, and the farm setting depicted is charming.
This was an exciting and peculiar find - a sort of tri-fold wallet-like case lined with pockets and many Singer needles; this is possibly something a salesman would have used.
