    I am going to try to send a pictures of my thrift store find.
    It was 6.88 with an orange tag which meant I got it for 30%
    off of that. I just had to have it. Nothing fancy but I didn't have
    any decorative stitches on mine so this will help some.

    Great find. You just have to be there at the right time. I have a singer in the original cabinet that I bought at a second hand store for $35.00. They didn't know it had a sewing machine in it. All the attachments and instruction manual where in the cabinet. I was really lucky.

    Our thrift stores have an inflated idea of what everything should be worth, then double that price.

    I've never had a bargain in ours except for one that is not quite so upscale. Get a lot of sheets there, good ones for an average of $2.99 and half price on Saturdays.

    I knew you had to be from Alabama. LOL. My favorite thrift store is in Pell City and always stop when we are traveling back and forth from Florida to Michigan. I have found some great buys and even an old 99 Singer for $6.88!! This thrift store even has a senior day every week.
