Oh My, Quite an Estate Sale Find!

Driving back from the DH's recent Specialist appointment, we took a stretch break at an Estate Sale.  It was totally a spur of the moment decision, requiring the husband to turn around and drive two blocks back to turn into the subdivision.

The detour was well worth it!  DH found some small woodworking tools and I found this, in the basement - a clean & dry basement I might add. 

The case is in near perfect condition.  And how about a peek inside.

A Singer LBOW 301A!!!  Lots of attachments - zig-zagger, buttonholer, etc.  I haven't had a chance to pull her out & test drive her yet but there was never a question in my mind that I would leave her behind.  $30.00!!! Woo Hoo!!!

The enclosed paperwork showed a complete tune up was done...in 1985!  

After 31 years, I imagine there will be some oil required for this girl to get up and running.  Nope - no name just yet. And she may just be the machine that gets left at the Michigan house during the Summer months. 


  1. You will adore your new machine, she is the twin to mine except yours has a really cool case. Lucky dog!

  2. What a find! And the attachments as well!
