    Thanks Ya'll! I'm so excited about it! I can't wait till it comes home. I did pay too much for shipping, but I wanted it so much. I look at GW often & regularly put things on my watch list, but usually don't bid 'cause of shipping. I really wanted this sewing cabinet a-lot. I almost missed it. I forgot when the auction was supposed to be over & when I checked on it there was only 15 min.s left! I just got in under the wire.
    Hey Debbie- I don't think that it will fit in my big truck for the trip. I guess that I have to leave it at home. Seriously, I can't wait till March. See ya then. {Hugs}

    Very nice! I buy a lot from Goodwill online. Only had to return one item.

    Congrats! You're going to love it. I bought the same one this fall at a thrift shop.

    I didn't know there was a site like this. I'll have to look into it. Love your purchase. I wish I had room for one.

    Congratulations. I have the same one. They are really liberal saying it weighs 14 lbs. Four or less is more like it.
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    My sis picked up a sewing machine I bought in Indy at shopgoodwill. It's in the back of my car and hasn't made it to the house yet. It's been so long I forgot what I bought.

    And it's too cold and windy for my blood---I'm waiting until the sun warms up that side of the house. Paid less than $40 forgot exactly what.

    The Goodwill auction sites are great and since few people know about them, you can get some good deals.

    My stepdad who is 89 bid on one at an auction locally and won! It's full of all kinds of stuff. I'm trying to talk him out of it, but I'll have to try harder. He doesn't sew and mom can't seem to get it together either. Enjoy the wonderful piece.

    Great find. I have one very similar that my Grandfather made for my mother back in the late 50's, early 60's. He hand made it from a Cherry tree that was on his property. I just love my hand me down. Hope you will love yours also.
