    I saw this baby at the thrift store on Monday. I visited it twice. There was still no price on it. So last night birthday money clutched in my hand, I went and ased howmuch? Oh my $5.00 because it hadn't been tested, someone had just dropped it off. My 3/4 size Singer 185. All mine and it runs like a dream

    See that little white tag, its from a store uin NJ where it was sold and serviced in 2000

    Good grief woman , where do you live? to find such great bargains. Our thrift stores don't have much good stuff, and they want new prices for everything.
    Well that was a wonderful birthday present. Have a happy day.
