    I had a rough day at work and came home tired and in a "not so good" mood. Before I hardly got through the door DH said, look at the newspaper on the table. There's a featherweight machine advertised. Hmmm, sure enough there was. Called the lady and she live about a mile from me, her name was Nancy. I was the first to call and went right over. It was in great shape, even the case. Had a nice box of accesories and the manual. She had it priced at the repair shop and he told her $300 or even more. She just wanted it to go to someone who would use it and not list it on E Bay to make a big profit. I now own, "Miss Nancy", named for her former owner. Very little needs to be done and she sews like a dream, so straight and smooth. Now I know why everyone loves these! Sorry I don't have very good luck with pictures, but y'all know what they look like. Yippee looking foreward to playing a little more this weekend.

    It sure did. I would go through it again for this deal. Met a new friend in the process. It was all good!

    What a goodly deal! And close to home so you didn't have to pay that dreaded shipping! Now you can run right out & buy some fabric with the money you saved! Congrats

    What a thrill for you!!!!!!! A bad day is bad enough but, to end it on such an awesome note takes all the "bad" out of the day.

    Congratulations to you and a big hug to your hubby!!!

    Enjoy

    "Nancy" will bring you many hours of enjoyment ~ I have "Licorice" and now "Onyx" and am looking for a white one but am happy with the two I got. They both run like a dream and sew beautiful. I use mine to take to classes and on retreats as they are just perfect to use that way. Have fun with "Nancy".

    Welcome to the club! I love my little pre-war Ginger that I bought from a lady who also was willing to forgo a profit and have it go to someone who would love her. I had missed out on another after the seller realized that he had a hot item and could get a lot more for it and so was feeling abused and despondent when Ginger was advertised for even less. You will have many happy hours with her!
