After seeing all of the lovely vintage machines posted, I have wanted one. But, I've never seen one in this area outside of pricey featherweights. I decided to wander around a local antique mall, and spotted this about a month ago. It was $100 so I passed. Today I went back, and the price was marked down to $78. I debated and debated, and on my 4th or 5th time passing by it someone came and hung up a 25% off sign in the booth! I decided it was meant to be! It needs to be "officially" cleaned, but it has all the parts and no rust anywhere! The case it sits in is really the only place showing any wear and tear. I'm a little scared to plug it in, so my husband will have to check the wiring, but I was so excited I just had to post pictures!

It's a 99, made in New Jersey in 1956 - 3 years before my mom was born :) Please ignore the messy table (courtesy of my 2 year old)

I learned to sew on one like this. I wish I had one now.

Oh, she's a darling. Enjoy, and hope all is well with the wiring. Why is it okay for our husbands to plug in electrical wires when we're scared? I do the same thing...let him take the zap! And yes, I do love him.
