    Here are the five things my dil went down and pulled from the curb.
    I haven't cleaned them up yet, don't even know if they will run.

    The church's seem to have the sewing machines, just not that many. You DIL did a great job of retrieving them from the curb. So what neighborhood do you live in??? Have fun with them.They all look to be in good condition wish you all the luck with them.......

    What a deal. Next time you go to a sale we should all be allowed to go with you. I know you are going to love working with these. Yes, they are most lovely.

    Good Golly Grief! Im glad u watched that curb to get them after that nutty man threw them out rather than calling goodwill to pick up.. Have fun with them! I never and i meam never see a machine in yard sale but once at an estate and it was an accident that i found the white fw for $30...so those 401 are great machine as well as the others that u spoke of. Would like to know where in fla you're at, too.

    Anyone know????

    What do you think they are worth "as is" and
    What do you think they would be worth if they were refurbished and in good working order.
    They still look good now that I have cleaned them up.
