Default Mint 201-2 at thrift store!

Sooo excited I can hardly stand it! Just got a perfect '47 201-2 w/attachments, manual, in cabinet with bench all in absolute great condition for - are you ready? - $68.00! Thank you local thrift store and thanks to the previous owner who took such good care of the machine. This machine just purrs! I just love the sound of vintage Singers and this one is the best of all my collection. Didn't realize the feed dogs drop until I read the manual - Wow! Can't wait to quilt on it. Anyone else dream of their awesome machines or am I just a bit nuts? Just had to share my excitement!

The deal on my 201-2 wasn't quite that good, but I like it just as much. I agree, they just purr. They run smoothly and quietly. That's why it's called the Cadillac of Singer sewing machines.

Do you have a picture for us :- ) It was definitely a bargain, but regardless this is one of those models you never regret spending a bit of time and money on after it's done.
