Christmas came early

I have been on the look out for one of these beauties for a while now and watched several go for silly money, even after discovering a nifty local app to save postage costs. The ebay fairies were finally smiling on me this week when I won my very own  Singer 99K,  even easier the pick up was on my husband's way home from work. 

The cover is in good condition and surprisingly the machine is not hernia inducingly heavy.

Even more exciting was finding the manual still inside, 

those  fifties illustrations are fabulous.

Look at the  matching apron and curtain!

The box of bits looks fun and appropriately festive.

This interesting website dates the machine as being made in 1956. I just need to clean and oil her and then she will be ready to play.

I am so looking forward to using her.

Have you used one of these beauties? 
Surely I cannot be alone in my love for them!
