    vintage Pfaff for $50

    That appears to be a cherry of a machine. Pretty cool how the chair is part of the cabinet. I would love to have a vintage machine like that. You know that some little older lady sewed and sewed on that machine. Probably needs a drop or two of oil, and she'll purr like a kitten!

    My wife is hopping up and down saying: "I want it! I want it!"
    For myself, never mind the machine, I want the cabinet .....

    Nope, not going for it. Couldn't go for the two treadles in West Peoria, so we sure can't go to Chicago.

    ah . . is chicago further from you than W. peoria?

    Don't you wish you were so far away that it was RiDiculously impossible, so you'd feel better? I know it stinks even more for you than it would for me, because you can actually help them, where I would just 'have' them, you know?

    I'm in Springfield, Peoria is in the middle between here and Chicago. Yeah, Chicago is quite a bit farther.

    What a beautiful machine and cabinet. I would love to have it, of course, I don't know where I'd put it. LOL

    My Pfaff 130 has similar style handles on the cabinet doors, but no chair like that. What a beauty that one is and at such a great price!

    If only I lived closer I would jump on that one! But Chicago is about 6 1/2 hours away...

    I'm so glad I live in Texas!!! I'd go get it in a heartbeat! OOOHH she could share the cabinet with the Pfaff 60! I do like the bobbin door/hole in the Pfaff cabinets, it makes bobbin access so much simpler.

    I'm sorry Lisa (and anyone else). I am the guilty party. I was the lucky one that bought it. It was in Niles. About an hour away from Bartlett. I will be posting pictures of it soon. It does need some work and is full of dog hair and has some mouse droppings in the drawer if that makes you feel better.
