1951 Electric Centennial Singer Sewing Machine with desk & leaf - $85 (Brookline)
"Selling a 1951 electric Swinger sewing machine that has the centennial emblem on it. The serial number on it is AK 138.911, which indicates its age. The machine itself works as far as motor/needle movement via the electric foot pedal, though we haven't threaded it up or anything. It's still shined up with only a minor amount of scuffing. All of the text is intact and legible as well as any of the signature markings on it. The wood is is good condition with only a few areas of wear and/or condensation. The table itself is sturdy and the fold out leaf has a metal support under it to keep the hinges from bending. There are even a few spools of original thread in the storage compartment. All in all, this is in pretty decent condition and could be used as a sewing machine or as decoration since it isn't overly large in size."
