    That is a "beasty buttonholer". $10 in 1945 was a lot of money. Is there a part number on it?

    Anyone looking for a beautiful 2 tone blue Vigorelli? http://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/for/3354131026.html North of NYC I think the colors are probably nicer in person.

    Jon, thanks for the help. They went between $48 and $100 so offering her $60 would be okay. Don't want to pay much more but will see how she responds. Thanks again.

    she can always say no if she thinks you are too low and you can always go up if you like

    That's true and that's why I am starting low but I already know my upper limit.

    Guess it's only worth parts if it needs some expensive repair or part.

    That is so true and I'm not buying a parts machine as I have several already.
