Well, on the way thru Bridger, MT, I decided to stop by Huff's Antique store.
I've been pining after 2 antique Singer sewing machines... The top of my list is much sought after Singer 221 Featherweight followed closely by the sew everything Singer 15-91!
I've been following these wonderful machines on ebay... drooling...
Well... there it was at Huff's... his ex-wife's mother's "quilting" machine.... a Singer 221 Featherweight! It's the cutest little machine! My first time to see one in real life!
This little machine was complete with box, attachments... even a buttonhole attachment! All in very nice condition!
My heart sank when I saw the price tag... $350!
But Mr. Huff said that he thought that his ex-wife would take $300.... OK... off to stroll around the store I went.... because I just didn't want to spend that much money! Not that it's not worth it, of course!
After looking around the store (I just love antique stores, don't you?) I went back and had him plug it in... and listened to it run. Sigh.... Gosh, it even has the original Singer 221 manual!
Then he said, I bet she would take $250 for it. Hmmmm....
I hemmed... and hawed... it's in such nice shape! OK!!! I put a deposit on it!!!!
