    I had to use the laundromat the other day & while the wash was going I went into the Salvation Army next door. I spotted a cabinet and started to look it over when I realized it was a sewing cabinet!! It has a split top, center split doors in the front with a spool rack on the inside of the right door & two bins on the inside of the left door. It's on casters, so when I get it in the house I'll be able to arrange it how I want in my sewing room. I haven't been able to get it in the house yet, need to have my DH's help. Can't wait to get it in here & get it cleaned up! Oh, and it included, at NO EXTRA charge, a large supply of pins in one of the cubbies!!! LOL! Be happy for me! Oh, I almost forgot, that with the senior discount it cost me a whopping $11.90!!!!!! How can you beat it? Happy, happy, joy, joy!

    This was a high end cabinet from Singer in the late 60's early 70's. Great find!

    I'm beginning to think that I need to move. I have been to our Goodwill's, DAV's, and SA's and have never found anything yet to bring home.

    Wow that makes me feel even better about what a great deal it was! I am so excited to get it cleaned up & fixed (it needs some repair)and take a picture for everyone to see! And I got to try out my machine to be sure it fits and it looked so happy there!
