oooh, you're going to LOVE the Kenmore! It's my new baby.paroper
, you're not going to believe what I found: another Kenmore, just like your old one, complete w/ all the attachements, in a cabinet, at a rummage sale....get this...for $15
! (Just 3 days after I bought the one I already posted!)
It was so weird....I bought the first one (for $35) on Wednesday, and on Thrusday morning, my mom tried it out and said she loved it, and if I ever found another one like it, I should pick it up for her. We both kinda laughed about it, b/c what are the odds?
Saturday, I was out rummage sale-ing, and at on my way out of town, decided to stop at one more sale (they had some baby stuff that I wanted to look at)--one that wasn't on my original "list." Imagine my surprise when I see this beautiful Kenmore set up. I dash over to it, trying not to look too excited. It's marked $40...I'm not sure if I/Mom really want to spend that much. As I start to play with it, the lady says, "It works great. I'll give you a great deal on it. $15. You can even try it out if you want." Well, I just happened to have fabric in my car from when I tried out the first Kenmore, and sure enough, this one did sew perfectly. Of course, I snagged it. (We had a hell of a time getting that damn cabinet into the car, though!)
After my mom, you were the frist person I thought of
I did make my mom "trade" me, though--I got the rummage sale one, since it was in a cabinet, and was able to use all the fun cams, Mom got the slightly older model that I got earlier in the week.
Neither one of us could be happier!
A couple days ago, I was at our local second hand store (the Civic Center, aka, The Civ), and see this sewing machine cabinet, buried behind a ton of other stuff. I thought it was just the cabinet, and i just wanted to look at it. So I pull all the other stuff away so I can get to it, I open it up, and what is in it?
An old black Singer, that I'm guessing is a Featherweight.
I left it.
At the time, I was proud of my self-restraint. Now, I am inwardly weeping. It's killing me that I left it. I must have it. I did bury it back the way they had it (just in case), and since they have a couple other sewing machines there that have been there for months, I'm hoping that there just isn't much demand for such items. I'm PRAYING that it's still there tomorrow.
WHAT was I thinking!?!?!
