thrift store thrills!

yes, i bought this sewing machine because it matches my car. that kind of thing gives me a thrill.

it is in mint condition and runs like new! also thrilling!

i saw it at the thrift store a few weeks ago and kept my fingers crossed that it would still be there when green tags were half price – it was! 1/2 price gives me a thrill too.

it caught my eye because the case is the same as the sewing machine my mother had when i was little, the one i learned to sew on (although the machine was different, and not nearly as colorful).

    I also bought that same machine at a thrift store last November, and it was half price too! $12.50 I thought that was a bargain. I thought the case was odd but looks the same as yours (light yellow with blue?). I was wondering what year it was from, any clues?

    that was a bargain! not sure what year it’s from. the sewing machine my mother had with the same style case was bought in the early 70’s.
