Yippee!! A Singer Genie 353! I’ve wanted one for a long time and after faithfully keeping my eyes peeled on Craigslist for like YEARS and never coming across one locally, I bit the bullet and bought one off etsy from this lovely seller. She’s got loads of great vintage machines. Ok, I didn’t need a new machine. I have a Singer 301a and a pink Jaguar which are both really cool vintage machines. In fact, I love my 301a so much I don’t really need anything else. But the Genie has a built in blind stitch! And it has flower power!
Isn’t she gorgeous? Speaking of gorgeous, look what I couldn’t leave behind at an estate sale today:
More bakelite! Oh my how I love bakelite. The bird pin needs a little repair, but for something so darn cute and unusual, I’m willing! It’s just missing it’s eye and pin closure on the back. And the butterscotch carved bangle! Delicious.
