    Congrats on your great find!!! The Centennial badge means that it was made in 1951. You can go www.singerco.com and find out the modle and year it was made with the serial number.

    3.00 for the whole thing??? That is amazing! Pictures or not, I have paid 3.00 for office supplies that consisted of dried ink in pens and pencil stubs. Good job!

    $3.00? That has to be one of the best finds ever!
    My big sale 'find' has nothing to do with quilting - got a Vita Mix blender (say $370.00 retail) for $15.00 at a yard sale once - still using it. But your gem is even better! Congrats. I'd have made the purchase just for the cabinet.

    I was just excited to get the stool and the cabinet. I thought the sewing machine must have been junk since no one was outbidding me on it. I am new to quilting and have two sewing machines already but I really don't know much about sewing machines.

    You can't lose with a sale like that! Maybe the auctioneer never opened the cabinet to see if there was a machine there. Too bad for him. You got a great deal!
