    Ran out of money on the way to the antique show

    We went into the city today thinking we'd wander around at the Antique Show that's in town for the weekend, but first I needed to stop and drop off a serger.

    This is where I picked up a nice folding table that should be great for cutting, and takes up very little space. Just needed new wheels (cost of less than $3)

    Then we went to a moving sale, and I picked up everything that's on the table, $48.

    301 was seized - 3 in 1 oil. It's marinating right now, but everything's free. Needed the "finger brackets adjusted. $40

    The Bernina may be for parts, unfortunately, but at least I got it for free.

    That table looks a lot sturdier than my Joann's one. Nice job!

    You got awesome things! Be sure to check around the bobbin area for threads. When I got one of my 301-A's, it had several threads that were caught and keeping it from going properly. Now she sews like a dream. Enjoy your goodies!
    This too shall pass.

    Is that a Bernina 730 and what's wrong with it?

    You got a whopper of a bargain at that sale.
