    Red face Craigslist Score-Featherweight for $50!

    I am so excited, I just can't believe my luck. I am always checking CL and Goodwill for bargains. Just as I was ready to shut down my computer and go to bed, I decided to do a quick check on CL to see any additional listings, since it was after midnight. Imagine my shock when I saw the Singer 221 listed for $50 or best offer!! I fired off an email saying I'd take it for $50 and a few minutes later got a call from the seller. Arranged to meet her the next morning before work (before bigger offers started coming her way-though she said someone called her at 5am))and now she's mine. Case is rough, FP needs rewiring but she's is great condition and has the bobbin case. No attachements, but that's okay, I'll shop. Runs smoothly. Have to date her but the lady said she is from the '40's. I'll post a pic when I learn how to resize. Yay me!

    Don't you just love that! I know the feeling I found a large box of old feedsack fabric for 10.00 at an estate sale. I was so excited I was shaking when I went to pay for it. They all probably thought I was a nut! I was a "happy nut" though. Congratulations!!!
