Facing the Music (& Art & Sewing Equipment)

I continue to sort through the contents of my mom’s house. The below items (music/art/sewing–related) are available for sale or giving away. Please comment or share if you are interested. Soon I will post pictures of furniture and housewares.

What’s better than four roses on an organ? Never you mind. This Lowry organ does power up but is not fully functional. (Now please stop thinking what you’re thinking.)

This Yamaha P-70 electric piano (about 12 years old) is in good working order.

Vintage Tandberg reel-to-reel tape recorder. Powers up but sound is tremendously muffled.

Set of 10 exquisite pen and ink prints depicting musicians (mostly female). Descriptive text in German. I don’t know what it says or where these came from.

Close up of German prints.

Pillow and two vintage mic stands. The floor model has vintage duct tape on it.

Klipsch speakers (still working). Vintage speaker of indeterminate brand. Monster cable with enough copper to feed two generations.

AR Inc. vintage speaker. Probably not functioning, but I know you’re looking at that lamp anyway.

OK, here’s the lamp. Perfect for the set of Mad Men!

Pretty framed print with interesting texture. About 30″ wide and 10″ tall.

Budapest and dolphins are trending online, but the record collection is mostly classical, with some pops, comedy and children’s stuff mixed in.

Vintage Kenmore sewing machine in its cabinet. It was working fine the last time I saw my mom use it but that was over 20 years ago. I also have sewing/tailoring books/pamphlets as well as lots of thread/notions/fabrics/accessories.

    Joanne, I’m very interested in the print you describe like this: “Pretty framed print with interesting texture. About 30″ wide and 10″ tall.” Of course I would accept it as a gift, and I will pay shipping, but I’m also willing to pay for it, depending, naturally, on how much you charge. Thanks!
