    Great find, good price and beautiful machine. We don't have estate sales around here, we have auctions and unfortunately the auctioneer is also into antiques so he knows the value on most things. He starts them at almost the true value of the item, so no bargains here. Enjoy yours it looks like you have enough accessories and needles to last a while anyway.(smile)

    Nice. I would have let DH either wait in the car or just pay for a large amt of fabric so I could go through it later

    I have the same machine only in a different cabinet. It is a workhorse.

    The last vintage machine I want before I stop buying is a 401 or a 501. I am torn between being happy for you and being jealous. Good looking machine and cabinet! You did well!

    I would have given them a bit more to throw in all the fabric, pay and run. My plan of action when we have our dh's with us! You did good!

    How nice. I would have taken DH home and gone back if it wasn't too far. The cabinet is exceptionally nice.

    You will love that machine. I have one, it is a work horse, and practically perfect in every way.

    That looks very well taken care of. Lucky you. I'm glad I don't have a husband to limit my shopping.
