    My Estate Sale Find

    I found this Singer oil can at an Estate sale this past week. Like new in condition and never been opened.

    Be careful using old oil. Even if it has not been opened it could have changed consistency. Better to keep it as an antique.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I think I paid $1. I got other items and really did not notice the price.

    I have an original oil container from a Viking (1960's) but it is in a hard plastic container, so better not to use it?

    WOW, my how prices have changed. I have an old paper set of needles with 10 cents on the cover, there may not be many needles left, but I love the cover.
