I think I mentioned that my hubby was doing some cleaning in the basement. He finally re found this old sewing machine that he bought at an auction years ago. I remember when he got it, he stood out in the rainy cold weather for hours just waiting for this to come up. It was a very long auction and the auctioneer was selling bricks one by one. At any rate, my hubby didn't pay much for this machine and it is in really good condition. He did sew with it when he first got it. It has all sorts of patent numbers on it and dates too(I think dates). One neat thing about is that the tools are there.
