I don't know what to do!?!!
Ran to a 2nd hand store today looking for ballet slippers for the girls. Tried out a new place and didn't know that it was really more like an antique 'mall' with stalls for different sellers.
Didn't find the slippers, but did come across a Singer 15-91!! She was made in 1955 in NJ, and is in really good shape. Decals are all there and bright, well polished. She's housed in a sewing table that doesn't look like much (there may be a surprise under the paint, but who knows). Wheel turns, but I didn't look at much else...having the kids with me. Price tag was $99.
Sooooo, I've spent lunchtime doing some research. On Ebay they can run anywhere from $40-300. Not much help in comparison shopping. These are good work horse machines, that can sew leather and up to 6 thicknesses of jeans. They were high-end machines of their time.
Do I need another machine? NO
Would I like another machine? YES
Is this in great shape? appears to be; would need to look inside
Can I afford to spend $$ on another toy? Not really
Is she real pretty? YES
Could it be fun? YES
WWYD??? Anyone have one? Any input from a un-biased perspective? Oh yeah, forgot...you have the same disease I have...you are definitely NOT un-biased! lol
