    Good job shopping!!!!! That is a bargain to be sure. If you need to find a way to get the musty smell out, pm me. I have a couple of ways, depending on how bad the smell is.

    Good job!!! Good eye!!! Excellent bargain!

    As for the musty smell, I've heard many people say they just set it outside in the sun for several hours and that did the trick. If it's really bad, you might have to do it for a few days. Someone mentioned oder eaters for shoes, this also works. I've not tried the dryer sheets, but I don't see why this wouldn't work.

    Omigosh--that is fantastic! People would pay more than $45 for just the accessories. I have a 1938 model, 'Miss Olivia', that I take to any workshop that needs only a straight stitch.

    Wow...great find!!!! When I got one of my featherweights the case smelled a bit musty as well. I put a bar of dove soap in it and shut it for a couple of days...really helped! Congratulastions!!!!

    so happy for you - I bought one similar at a rummage sale, but it needs a tune up which is going to cost a few bucks from what the dealer in AZ tells me - like close to $100.. but Im anxious to get it fixed too.. good luck with yours and enjoy

    OMGosh! Unbelieveable. Good thing the guy didn't know what it is worth. Has Billy seen it yet?
    I am in the library using their puter and they actually looked at me goofy when I saw the picture and made an exclamation!
    You scored bigtime, girl. Nice job.
    Oh, if you need someone to will it to, I will be happy to PM you my name and addy.

    I am so happy that your baby was there waiting for you. I have a few old old Singers and a Featherweight and they are the best. I just recently figured out how to use the wonderful RUFFLER..... I see from the picture you have one....it is the best when you have a little girl to sew for....try it out. If you don't have the book email me and I will tell you how I use mine.....good luck and enjoy
