I plugged in the sewing machine and it runs. I need to get some new needles and bobbins and see how well it works. So far, it looks promising.
The artist kit is brand new. None of the crayons, pencils, markers, paints, or anything else in the kit have been used. On top of that it all comes in a nice carry case.
I can’t imagine why anyone put these two things out as trash. They are my new treasures.
