    I was out at garage sales this weekend and came across this machine in the case and i could not pass it up . They asked 20.00 for it and I paid 15.00 - case and all . Excellent shape and works like a charm - came with extra feet and attachments . She is heavy but so glad i found it ..

    Congrats on the great finds. Down here in Central FL everyone seems to think their machines are made of gold!

    You did very well on your purchases, the White was made by Marzuen/Jaguar and they badged machines for Kenmore. The Brother is really pretty and both look like they were very well cared for.
