I am so excited, actually paid 45.00! Looks like she was hardly used, book and stuff like new. I have only seen pics before, never held one, so little, like a cute toy.Am going to sit down and read instructions and then see if she runs.
Case is a little musty, with some dead bugs in the bottom, will just vacuum and dust out for now.
Thanks to everyone who had wished me luck over the weekend. I worked Sat and Sun, till MN last night, but got up and going today, was so afraid it would be gone. But the little case was just sitting there, waiting for me. thanks again

I am so excited for you!!! I know it was a nail biter weekend for you but it paid off. Now go give son a huge hug for that pic he took of it. LOL, I think it's great that for some reason he took that pic of that particular machine. You will have fun sewing on it too, mine runs like a dream. Thanks for sharing your good fortune with us.

What a find.....it looks brand new. You will love to sew with it. I have the black 221. I read, to put a bar of safeguard soap in the case to help with the musty smell.
To help protect the bed that folds up, I made a slip on cover for it.
Enjoy.....
