    I had had no intention of buying but hung around to see what it would go for.
    no one was bidding so I threw out $25.00 and got it plus all the goodies you see
    and more! The chair seat lifts up and it was full with a couple new rivet makers,
    beads and stuff. You can see I barely got it in the door before trying it out.
    sews like a charm!

    Those are Gingher scissors that cost over $50 each. You definitely scored.

    Patience paid off! You have a great machine especially for piecing. If you have any questions about it, post them on the Vintage and Antique forum here.

    Very nice little set-up. Singer 15-91 in a custom cabinet and a beautiful chair, not to mention all the loot and booty that came with it!

    Recently I found a Singer 301 in a cabinet with bench and tons of feet and attachments and gadgets. I got it for $50. It happens. They are out there.

    After looking at the beautiful machine, my eyes caught the scissors. Wow. I think everyone noticed them too. Great find!

    Looks like it went to the right person. You clearly love it and will use it - exactly the right home for it.
