    Another garage sale---this time a green Singer 319w

    I bought another one! My step son just carried it in for me, so haven't started cleaning or oiling yet......Love the cabinet but it needs some TLC too. Full of attachments and other dodads, thread, needles, pins, -----$!5 and it runs well......some day I am going have to quit....but not this day.

    Great fine. I love the cabinet too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    All these good buys I've been seeing and we don't even have yard sales worth looking at around here.
    We're in the wrong place.

    Congrats on the great machine. I'll bet it cleans up nicely.

    After you get it cleaned up and touch up the cabinet, you will have great set up. Good for you.

    Great find Harrishs, thought I would also let you know about another one - at Thrift World on about 30th andLeavenworth, take a right as you go in the doors its sitting right up front - machine looked to be in good shape - cabinet not bad. Don't know the price.
    Good hunting!! Lee

    It's still a STEAL for $15.00. Great looking cabinet.

    Have a blessed day.

    Great buy, even at $15!! Joe, I'm in the same boat as you...nothing good popping up in my area either! There's going to be a huge City Charity Sale here in my small town on August 4th so I'm hoping something will be there. Although, it will need to be "cheep, cheep, cheep" (deliberately misspelled) for me right now but I might be able to swing some funds for charity!! That's my excuse...uh, reasoning...and I'm sticking to it!!

    I do love a $15 yard sale machine........Love it. Especially the cabinet and "not plundered through" drawers. The good yard sales are beginning to fade around here too.
    Make every day count for something!

    Wow!!! What a great price. The cabinet looks great and the machine will too once you clean it up. What model of Singer is she? And the stuff in the drawers, that's worth at least another $15! You hit a great sale. I wish there were some good ones around here. Let us see what all is in the drawers too. Are there 2 featherweights in the background? You are so lucky!!

    I paid a WHOLE lot more than that for mine.
    a link to one I restored: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...c-t162425.html
    The decals are kind of fragile so be careful.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
