    I ordered a chocolate malt to celebrate... LOL

    Okay, I admit it, I put on about 200 miles yesterday taking a road trip to pick up 3 Singers at three different locations. Oh, this addiction MUST stop!

    First stop I picked up a 15-91 with cabinet, owners manual for it and for a model 66 plus two boxes of attachments. A VERY nice machine!

    Second stop I pickuped up a V.S. 2 (head only & in a little rough condition) but - hey - it's my first fiddle base. Fiddle bases seem to be scarce around here.

    Third stop picked up another 15-91 with a beautiful cabinet AND matching stool (stools also are scarce in my area). I have a sister who wants to replicate what our Mom sewed on so between the two 15-91's I figure I can get a really nice setup for her.

    That last 15-91 purchase also included a stool FULL of attachments.......

    now......

    hold your breath.....

    I paid $30 for this last 15-91 plus cabinet plus matching stool plus all the attachments..........

    and....

    wait for it.....

    wait for it.....

    wait for it....

    there was a penguin walking foot included!!!!

    These penguin walking feet are really collectible. A penguin walking foot recently sold for $450 on ebay. (No, I'm not selling my penguin!)

    Whoo hoo! Time to celebrate!!!!

    We stopped at the local ice cream store. I ordered a chocolate malt to celebrate! LOL

    PS Here's a video someone else made demonstrating this penguin walking foot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UANYpUSsi4I

    PS I forgot to add: The walking foot came in it's original box with an instruction book. The original price of the penguin walking is on the box. It's marked $3.95.

    I don't blame you for holding on to that walking foot. If it were me that would have been worth the whole trip. That and the chocolate malt.

    Never heard of a penguin walking foot. Thanks for the information. I had to stop buying old sewing machines, but am still willing to accept 'donations'!

    OOOOOOHHHHHHH! I've never seen one in the wild- never heard of one til I found this Board of addicts. If I don't stop coming here I'll be one too! Fantastic finds.

    Congratulations! Great finds...thanks for sharing info on the Penguin, I never heard of one before. (Chocolate malts are a celebratory treat for me as well...few and far between, but if I want a splurge, it's at the top of my list!)

    How exciting! I never knew such a thing existed until I came here (the penguin). What a lucky find.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!
