Turquoise sewing machine


My friend Reta Ousdahl downsized last summer and I ended up with her mother-in-law's White Zigzag sewing machine. It matches my house and is so dang cute. I had fantasies of setting it up in the living room to do 15 minutes of play a day, sewing on the porch with it.


The machine needed servicing to I took it to the local shop. The owner oohed and aahed over it. All metal, he exclaimed! So much better than the plastic machines that followed ...


AND it comes with all the accoutrements: manual, accessories ...


Not to mention nice table and the cutest chair on the planet, with storage in the seat ...

Well! Reality has caught up with me. I have enough machines already ... so I'm offering this one for sale. If you know of someone who needs a nice machine, send them my way. I'm asking $125, mainly to recoup the cost of the servicing, and I can be flexible ... I'd just like it to have a good home.
