Hello there. I have this vintage vacuum cleaner that my great grandmother owned. She has passed now and we have been cleaning out her house. I have done a little research on it (attached address)
http://www.1377731.com/compact/ That site tells about why and who invented them. It's a pretty neat story. But you can't believe everything you read on the internet so I am writing to you guys. It does work and has attachments for it. Actually it works very well and it's kinda cute... Any info would be appreciated.

    I have the exact model vacuum purchased in the 1970's. Mine has the exact same coloration and detail. It is a model C-8. I bought it from a door-to-door salesman who demonstrated it in our home. I still use the "good old girl" for small jobs. It has always been a great vacuum...a real workhorse. I lost some major accessory parts (wands, floor attachment, etc.) in our last move and would love to replace them. I know I'm not supposed to solicit, but I'd love for you to contact me if you decide to sell. (rbflynt@comcast.net) Replacement parts are very difficult to find, probably because even the old vacuums still work! Funny that I have the small attachments like for upholstery, dusting, and crevices. They fit on my central vacuum system hose. You can still purchase bags that fit. If you decide to hang on to your great grandmother's, don't let the parts get away from you. They are very dear and impossible to find. She made a very good investment!

    Love it !!! We had one on the Farm that my Dad used in the Shop. That thing took a beating and just keep on going. It think IT WAS the Energize Bunny back then!!
