I dropped by Deseret Industries (local thrift store) on my lunch hour and found this sweet little bargain. Brought it home, cleaned it up, serviced it, gave it a couple of adjustments and there you have it. The original instruction manual was inside and included the original sales receipt from Sears. The tool box is missing the buttonhole attachment, but I just happen to have a Kenmore buttonholer in my parts drawer. Guess it's OK to save things once in a while. This is what would be termed a "utility stitch" machine. Has all the basic stitches & stretch stitches. Oh what fun I am going to have.
The machine was purchased new in 1971 for $139 back in Ohio. Now can you guess what I paid for it?
