Can you say "Half Off Everything Sale"? Well, a couple Goodwill stores in the area had just such an event the day after Christmas this year. Not the sort of thing a sewing machine nut of my calibre (caliber?) can pass up. And wouldn't you know, they had some sewing machines. Seven to be exact. The rest of the family knows with certainty now that I am quite nuts. But enough of me, on to some photos...

Don't pay no nevermind to the sewing cabinets. The only machines I bought that day were portables. In order of appearance, Singer 404, Singer 6136 in soft case, Singer 758 with accessories, manual and two sets of cams, Singer 257, Singer 237, Kenmore 158.321, and finally a Morse 9900. Here is a little better view of them.

Singer 404 (no cord, foot control or case, just the bare machine). This machine is so photogenic, I used it in my first post on this blog. I cannot photograph machines like that PossumJim guy on the internet. Something to strive for though.

Singer 6136 (the hand wheel is broken, not sure if it is repairable, and the tension stud is also kaput)

Singer 758 with accessories and manual

Singer 257

Singer 237

Kenmore 158.321 with manual

Morse 9900

Quite the score, but I think I'm a little biased.

Oh, I almost forgot. I also picked up a cool-looking Atomic needle pack and just had to post a photo of it. I don't know if it is old or new, but either way it still looks neato-mosquito.
