oh so gorgeous antique kauri laundry tub, tin lined, old cream paint still there, many uses such as vinyl storage, planter box, toy bin, table base, $575



fabulous vintage 48 drawer cabinet, rimu, each drawer measures 25.5cm wide and 40.5cm deep, $1595.


this is a very special singer sewing machine, and the one every serious collector would like in their collection. The Singer 'New Family' was the first machine produced that worked really well. This one dates to 1878 and the purchase of it would have been similar to the purchase of a new car today. The fiddle shaped base was a feature together with the beautiful gilding. It comes complete with the original instructions, $595:
