    Cool $5.00 Yard Sale Find!

    Went to a yards ale today, saw a sewing machine stand, walked over to it and it had a price tag of $5.00, thought to myself there is no way that there is a sewing machine inside the stand but curiosity got the best of me so I opened the top of the stand and lifted out a pretty nice looking singer 99!!!!!!!!! I approached the lady having the sale and told her that I would take the machine but that I did not need the stand she said ok and I came home with a machine that only needs a little cleaning and a belt, guess you could say that I scored!

    Oh! If she still has it, go back and get the table. The little 3/4 tables are harder to find and the hinge spacing is different so you can't put a little one into a regular cabinet

    I too would have grabbed the table. Might as well complete the steal.

    I agree. I got a Spartan (stripped down 99) in a cabinet for ninety-nine cents but the cabinet was modified to fit the 99 ... and it wasn't well done. I'd love to have a cabinet for my 99.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Wonderful find! Would you be able to go back and get the cabinet? The 3/4 sized will also fit the cute little green 185.
