VINTAGE AVOCADO GREEN SEARS MIXER - MODEL NO. 400.8244

It was May 22nd, 1972, 2:00 A.M. and the hum of the Doris' Sears mixer could be heard emanating from the kitchen of the Donaldson's suburban New Jersey home. The drone of the mixer was beginning to loll Doris to sleep, she slapped herself on the side of the cheek and reached for another cup of coffee. "Just one more batch...just one more batch" was the mantra she kept repeating in her head.

One hour earlier, eight-year-old Douglas Donaldson had appeared next to Doris' pillow and announced to his mom that she was suppose to bake five dozen cupcakes for the big Hackensack-Teaneck Cub Scout jamboree to be held later that morning. The groggy mother of four nudged her sleeping husband Dennis, telling him that she was having a nightmare. He reached over and poked her on the shoulder. Doris rubbed her eyes and the little eight-year-old apparition was still standing there, it was no nightmare (or maybe it was)--she had to drag herself out bed and bake five dozen cupcakes.

The original pads located on the bottom of the mixer are gone but the mixer set firmly on a counter top. The We found two hairline cracks on the plastic top of the mixer motor but they appear to be stable and do not affect function of the machine.
