I went to an estate sale in a "not so nice" part of town today.

I found a perfect condition Singer sewing machine that works flawlessly. It's a model 15-90 and was made in 1946. It is in a beautifully designed deco style cabinet with the original stool. When I looked in the drawers all of the feet, the original oil can, and the original manual were all there!

The cabinet is currently an ugly butterscotch brown, but I am going to remedy that soon.

I will post before and after pics.

And what did I pay for it you ask......$20....yes......TWENTY DOLLARS!!!!

And BTW, does anyone know where I can get a replacement light bulb for it?

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.

 That is a fantastic find!
Light bulb- just take out the old one & take it with you to the fabric store (in a zip baggie, in case of breakage)- chances are it's pretty standard. If not try Radio Shack or an all pupose appliance place.

Care of your new baby- if it's well organized it likely has been well maintained (huge bonus) but I'd take it in for a cleaning & adjustment anyway, dust build up can dirty your fabrics.
