Able is a tad more pricy then other places , but if you are looking to purchase a sewing machine , t hen this is a store that you owe yourself to check out. They carry the higher end models as well as some lower end models. Sometimes you can find customer returns of machines that will save you money. I really don't have any expereience buying a vacume there, but I do buy vacume bags there.
It's the premuim you pay for good service.
