    Found this 301 on ebay

    I got this gem in the mail today. Found it on Ebay. Works like a charm and very clean. Does have a mild musty order. Love the way it fits the table.

    Either a 301 or a 201 are on my wish list but haven't found one yet in my price range. Enjoy the 301! Great that you have the table also. I got a table on Ebay for my 221 and had to refinish but glad I got it.

    At Goodwill? How lucky can you get. Bet you didn't have to pay $150 for yours. Enjoy, I really like mine. Also have a 201 that is a good machine also.

    Almond, it was marked $129.99 in a cabinet. No bobbin case. When I pointed out that it was missing, she let me have it for $70.00. I had an extra bobbin case for my FW so that was great! She sews a beautiful straight stitch. I wanted to pay less, but I wanted it and have not seen a 301 in months of searching.
