This morning mom and I went to town to take care of a few things. I delivered the maple leaf quilt and went to the grocery store. Mom asked if there was anything else that I wanted to do while we were in town. I said...."well, we could go to the thrift stores and look for machines" LOL! First we headed to Goodwill, nothing there. Then to another thrift store, they were closed on Thursdays. Then we went in the last one. In that store, everything is just piled everywhere and you really have to look! Mom found both of them!!
First we found this one. It is made in Japan and it is the prettiest shade of blue. I really don't know much about it other than it says, "PRINCESS DELUXE PRECISION" Model # 2000 Serial # 06954. If anyone can help me find out anything else, like the year and such I would love to know.
I took her apart, cleaned and oiled and she sews like a jewel! I didn't even have to adjust her. Oh and on the bottom by the serial and model numbers someone engraved their social security number on it. CRAZY! I know this because it is a KY social security number and that's where I live.
She has a little bit of pretty detail on her. I think I would really like sewing on her. Oh and her cost....$15
Next mom found this one. A Singer 404. Serial # AN300440 so that makes her born in 1960. This one is in a cabinet. I don't really have a lot of room for a bunch of cabinets and I would have bought it anyway but I think mom thought that I wasn't going to buy it. She said, "you're crazy if you don't buy that, if you don't, I will" LOL! I bought it for $15 also. In the end I will probably give it to mom if she wants it.
I took her apart, cleaned and oiled her and I didn't have to adjust the tension on this one either. She sews perfectly!
So here they are in my kitchen! One in the cabinet and the other on my table. As you can see, I was so excited to tear into those machines that I didn't even put all of my groceries away first! LOL!
Not a bad day! Two machines that sew perfectly for $30!!! YAY!
