I acquired this Cinderella from a fella on eBay. The machine works and the paint job is very good but the box was totaled. There was no black "fabric" on the lid and the top of the lid had let go by the time I received it. I glued the top of the lid but didn't nail it, as the wood was very thin and brittle. Then I fashioned a slip cover of fabric that had similiar little flowers to what is painted on the machine on a black background. (Isn't it amazing that I had a piece of fabric that matched? NOT...) I spray painted the base of the box after trimming away the fabric that had peeled away (don't look too close!)
The local sewing machine repairman gave her a once over and made up a cord/foot pedal. I don't know how the seller on eBay could say "it powers up" when there was no cord/foot pedal. NOTE TO SELF: do not assume there is a cord/foot pedal. I requested the seller wrap the foot pedal in bubble wrap for shipping and that is when I found out "there is no foot pedal pictured or mentioned" = no foot pedal.
Another note: I bought this purely for asthetics. The sewing machine repairman said "it's a thrasher" lol! She's LOUD when she runs...not quiet like a featherweight.
