Hand Crank- FOUND

Yay for Craigslist! I called about this hand crank the day after it was posted, and found out the woman selling it lives 5 houses away from me. I mean - I had to buy it - wouldn't have been neighborly not to, right? :) haha

It's so amazingly perfect. You would never think it's date is January 9, 1947. So awesome. I've been on the search for a hand crank Singer since I started collecting. They seem to be a little harder to come by, so when I saw one on CL, I had to jump. I paid $20 more than I wanted to, but I knew if my husband saw it's condition, he would be stoked - and he was :) It's so rare that he is pleased with a sewing machine purchase, but he thought it was super cool!

I am excited to teach my almost 4 year old son to sew on this one. I have a Necchi toy chain stitch machine, but this one is more usable I think.

So much for not buying machines........
