Vintage Singer Sewing Machine - Estate Sale Treasure

Saturday was my day to go thrifting at a local Estate Sale.  The original sale I went to resulted in no great finds, so no money was spent; which isn't a bad thing.  But.... on my way through town, I saw another Estate Sale sign "YAY!"; and couldn't resist the temptation to stop.  I really wanted to find something.  To my pleasure this sale had some wonderful treasures.  Too many for my budget but I picked up a few things. 

The treasure I'm most proud of is the Vintage Singer Sewing Machine I found for $40.  I researched it a bit; and found one that sold on ebay for $76 about a year ago (without the case).  One currently listed with "Buy It Now" price of $150 plus $65 shipping.  I'm guessing from what I've read that it was manufacturered in the 1960's. 

I think I got a GREAT bargain. 

I'm not the best photographer; and my full shot was really blurry.  So, I've attached the pictures that turned out somewhat decent.  If I take a better one later; I'll edit/revise this post. 

Hopefully I can make some really cool upcycled, refashioned, things like several of my new friends do.   And.... summer is a great time to start since there will be a lot of re-runs on TV.

I can't wait to try it out.
