Should I?

Go and get this?
It is a Singer Red Eye with a Bentwood case.
I used to never think I'd want one but I've found myself looking at the listings over the past year or so.
It obviously isn't in perfect condition but it still looks pretty good and according to the ad, it works (which I will check myself of course.)
The price is a steal from what I can tell. I certainly don't need it at all but it is pretty, isn't it?
What would you do if you were me?

  1. I'd definitely get it! When I couldn't pass up my garage sale vintage find...and brought it home...I immediately set it up by my quilt ladder and LOVE IT!!!

  3. I am an antique machine hoarder so if the price is good and it looks in decent condition. Yep I would get it.

  4. If price is good go for it. I just picked up a hand crank machine. Don't know why. Just because I guess:)

  5. Buy it!!! Even if it's not pretty, they are easily fixed up and it could be a collectors item worth three times what you pay for it in a matter of 5 years or so! I have almost 15 vintage machines....and I feel guilty all the time until I remember that some of them I will never find again and I own them!!! :-) Enjoy!

  6. Yes! I have a machine very similar to this one - my daughter bought it for me at an adoption yard sale for $3 - they couldn't get the cover off, so she had no idea what condition it was in. But when we finally got the cover off, my word, what a beauty! I took it to the shop for a tuneup and they put a new cord on it, but other than that, it runs like a top!! It joined my mother's Featherweight and my vintage Singer treadle machine, and I've since bought a Singer 99K to keep it company. All lovely machines that run great!

  8. I'm not a good one to give advice since I've downsized and gotten rid of most of my machines. That being said it sure is gorgeous. :) blessings, marlene

  9. BUY IT!! Vintage sewing machines are awesome to use. You'd be preserving a piece of history by taking it home, oiling it up and using it. Just imagine all the history a machine like this has seen and it;s still going strong.

  10. She is certainly a beauty! If the price was right and she worked she would be coming home with me if I ran into her.
