A Bargain on Ebay

My Diana dressmaker's model was looking decidedly tired after 25 years of use. The dials no longer turned and the felt fabric was peeling away. Was paying $450 for a new Diana worth the use it would get?

I turned to Ebay ...

... and there I found a Venus Ardus for $50.


In almost brand new condition, it still had the instruction manual as well as the plastic cover that the original model came in.




I considered it a bargain and realised I was incredibly lucky to snare such a good deal. Shopping online isn't only for fabric!
