I've always thought that the Rocketeers were the coolest-looking machines and now I might have a chance to own one! I love Craigslist sometimes - it's how I found the estate sale with my Featherweight and now this pretty baby.
I keep bringing my FW to the office and then have to take her back home all the time whenever I want to sew at a friend's house. My Janome certainly isn't leaving the house except under special circumstances! So I've kind of wanted a machine I could leave at work, freeing up the FW for all the trips I make with her. And the only machine I really want right now is a gorgeous Singer 500A of my very own.
The seller lives about an hour and a half away, which I expected, and we're chatting via email. The machine belonged to her mother and comes with a few accessories, as well as a sewn cover that her mother made for the machine. It was her go-to workhorse for many years and she wanted it to go to a home where it would be used and loved. Needs a little bit of servicing, but nothing major.
(The top piece is missing in the picture, but the machine does have it - she'd just misplaced it at the time and found it again later.)
