    I found this little jewel at my local Thrift store on Monday. It was caling my name as I walked by. It has a lot of attachments with it and it cleaned up pretty good. I think I will name her "Tillie". Oh, and by the way she cost a whopping $20.34 including tax. Sometimes I just can't help myself. :roll:

    Hi, I found it at the Unique thrift on 88th & Sheridan. So far I have found my 503 in cabinet, 12.95. I found a 301, 9.95 and then I found this one for 20.00. I go over there about 3 or 4 times a week. I live very close to it. I have also found 2 machines at the Mile High Thrift on S. Sheridan and Jewel.

    I live in Arvada. I go to that thrift store about once a month. I guess that isn't often enough LOL Congrats on your find.. I'll have to work a little harder I guess.

    OMG!! You obviously don't live in California. Our local thrift shop has two on consignment that were in terrible condition and the cabinets were just as bad. They wanted $175.00 each. Plus this same thrift shop no longer carries fabric. Nor does the Goodwill or the Salvation Army thrift stores.
