Bet you can't get the smile off your face. Congrats!!! you got a GREAT deal. I have a white/green celery/cream 221 and 3 black 221's...they are for my adult grand daughters...Love those machines, so cute and functional for piecing and sewing. I can never find a 222 that is in my budget zone. Enjoy.

222s aren't that rare, they just aren't sold as often. The only truly rare FW is the crinkle finish 221.

The person I bought it from, rewired it before I picked it up.

He has a crinkle finish also, I just don't like the finish. If I showed an interest I bet he may be convinced to sell it!
I'll visit him again, soon.

Thank you Cari, I'm going to show my DH this post.

Wow! I'm impressed! I have my mother's 221. I know that back in the late '80s a friend of mine bought one for $400 -- & she thought that was a bargain!
