I have been looking at a vintage sewing machine at our local DI thrift store. It was $40. A beautiful Singer 503A in a cabinet. Well, I don't really have room for yet another vintage machine & cabinet but I thought I would take one more look. It is missing the front slide plate & does not have any accessories included. As I stood looking just one more time, the manager came over & asked if I was going to purchase the machine. I told him that I was thinking about it. He then said "What if I mark it down from the $20 reduced price to $10?"
Well, I could not pass that up. I had already made sure that it was working. Checked on the cost of the replacement front slide plate, and brought her home. It's a circa 1961 Singer 503A Rocketeer. I have ordered the part (under $10) and can't wait to put her back in her cabinet. We had taken her out to bring her home in my little car & I then gave it a servicing. Will keep an eye out for attachments & cams.
Beautiful cabinet too!
Covered the bookcase & hung the stockings with care.
A wheelbarrow full of stuffed toys sits at the base.
My tiny tree fits nicely in the living room. We don't
really have space for a big tree.
The little bitty tree sits by the front door by the
vintage looking chests.
