Then last Friday I received a reply to my email. So I called on Saturday.
"I'm running a yard sale , so I will be home all day."
"OK, great I guess I could come over now."
I called Betsy and told her that the machine was still available and that the seller was running a Yard Sale.
"Oh Dear." was all she said.
I picked her up on the way (she can't resist yard sales. I knew it and used that as bait) We drove the 30 miles over hill and dale and found the place. True it was a yard sale. But is was one of those on going yard sales. There was nothing there we wanted except the machine
"It doesn't have a power cord." V. told me when I had called.
"So , how do we know it runs?" I asked. Well duh,
"I was told it ran when I got it. Some how the power cord got lost."
"OK. I would still like to look at it." And I lugged a power cord along with me. No big deal. I had one extra.
It ran and it sounded very nice, actually. Ran like a rabbit truthfully. Just like my LBOW at home.
I paid her and brought it home. Cabinet, some attachments and extra bobbins and all. The cabinet has a knee controller. That is a very nice thing. I don't have a Singer Cabinet with a knee controller. I wanted one.
But honestly, I did not get the "OOOOHHHH LA LA" I used to get when I got a machine. This was an "Oh well, is local. I have to go look and if it isn't any good I don't HAVE to buy it."
But turns out I think it will be a good one.
