Miss Elsie Green, my new/old Elna arrived today. She rode the USPS truck south from Seattle to Portland then to rural Clark County. I bought her through eBay from Seattle Goodwill. I was so excited. The pictures on the listing were a bit deceiving, I thought she would be more of a lime green but really she is more of an olive green. No big deal, just a little disappointing. I know that's the risk you take.
I thought she was boxed up very well. There was a thick layer of bubble wrap on top.
I think this is the only machine I will buy off eBay. I'm not a fan of the unknown. I almost didn't bid on it but it is so unique and I had that oh I want it so bad attitude that I shared with Ernie and he "made" me keep bidding! That's my story......... If we never get her to work, she will be come a piece of art but first she needs her face washed, she a bit grungy.
