For $75, I bought what turns out to be an 1929 electrical Singer 3/4 size portable model 99 sewing machine, with attachments. I cleaned it up, threaded it using the 1947 instruction book that came with it, and it sews very nicely. Glen fixed the bent case locks for me, and the busted case needs a little interior support work, but I am very pleased. I was fussing with it yesterday, thinking of the woman who bought it new 90 years ago, and what a wonderful, beautiful thing it must have been for her to have.
I also finally broke down and bought a wooden J&P Coats display desk. It's a bit big for the sewing room, so I have to figure out what to do with it. Oh, and the Rit dye cabinet was really cheap; at the end of the auction there are good bargains as everyone has spent all their wad.
