    Last night, before going to bed, I checked on Craigslist one more time. There was a Singer 201-2 (in a # 71 cabinet) for sale for $75.00--in a town less than a hour from me. I answered the ad right away and looked for a reply when I woke up this morning. It was still available!! I packed the kids in the car, stopped at the bank, got a coffee at DD and off we went :mrgreen: It belonged to the sellers MIL. The decals are wonderful but there is some chipped paint on the light hood--not a problem.

    I can't believe it!! I've been drooling over everyone elses 'new' 201-2's for the past few weeks and have restrained myself from bidding on one on eBay. Now I don't have any more machines on my "wish list"---maybe this will be my last one :roll: ;)

    I just checked the serial number and it was manufactured on April 8, 1953--woooo hoooo--my birth year!

    The machine belonged to the seller's MIL. I forgot to ask what her name was. She looks like a 'Ruth' to me :D
