Default I'm in love again - what do you all think of this one?

http://siouxfalls.craigslist.org/atq/4025781158.html I really shouldn't, but this is such a beauty. I don't know much about non-singers, but I expect I should make sure it comes with a shuttle. I showed it to DH - he's such a help with restraint. His only comment was " I could go pick it up this afternoon for you" Would have to take the truck, so I figure another $60 in fuel to bring her home. Most of the machines I see are run of the mill or really worn, don't see ones like this that often.

I called and left a message. One would think I could go over a week without buying a sewing machine . . . . And maybe it's already sold, that gets me off the hook.

A bit of cleaning and shining up and it will be beautiful. That's a neat cabinet, very fancy! Wonder if it still works?

I talked to the seller - she does not have a shuttle. I told her if I can get a shuttle for it, I want to buy it. So now I've got to figure out if I can get one without it costing more than the machine.

The Boye shuttle case it takes is #13. This looks like most of the Sear's rebranded machines take that one - including the Minnesota #1.

Anyone know how available they are?
