I stopped in one of my favorite resale shops today and was greeted by the same lady as always. She said she had an old Hoover in the back that she has been saving for me and it is very neat. I followed her into the vac to find a Hoover Dial A Matic! She even put my name on it to ensure that it would go to me! She had said that she was actually thinking about bringing it home to use because she really likes it! I asked her how much and she said I could take it for $15. When I heard the "fif" part, I thought, Oh God, fifty dollars... Thank goodness that wasn't the price! It has got the hose, telescopic wand, dusting brush, crevice tool, upholstery tool, bare floor tool, and 6 bags. All look as if they have been barely used. It even included the original plastic bag to carry the attachments in! As well as the ring that attaches the hose to the handle of the vacuum! The only thing I can find wrong is cosmetics. It just needs a bit of a cleaning, but other than that, it runs flawlessly!

Wow, what a find for $15.00! That lady is a rarity in thrift store circles! Bless her heart! I love that bare floor brush.
