    The auction for this little gem ends just after 11:00 pm on Tues. I wish it was closer to me! The estimated shipping from NY to TX is just over $60.00! Yet if someone lives closer this would be a bargain!

    It said the reserve has not been met yet. So you wonder how much do they want for it. Looks like a nice machine. shipping to Alabama is $49.50

    Is this a machine you really want? I live 40 minutes from there. My sister lives there.

    I had one shipped to me in North Dakota from New York for $30. The only thing wrong was the guy didn't pack it against breakage and the bottom of the machine which is a plastic broke. He refunded my money for the machine and the postage. $61.00 total. She is a nice little gem that sews great but no bottom to set machine into. am looking for one of them unless I can find something to glue mine back together so it holds the machine.

    OH! You're so sweet! Someday I'd like one of these, but if your sister did get it for me she'd still have to ship it & TX is very far from NY! Way too much money!
    I thought that she was so cute that the board would like seeing her, & if someone was close who wanted her they could get her.
    Thanks for the offer! :thumbup:

    I didn't notice that! It's not a usual thing for Goodwill to do on their sewing machines. Now I'm wondering!!!

    #4- foot pedal and wiring are NEW not vintage..so what else has been done to it??

    I bought a treadle, 1909 Singer....29.21 from Goodwill online, cost me 65.00 to ship it from Michigan, well packed and with the cabinet. Couldn't find anything like it down here in Texas that I could afford. Runs like a dream.....has the beautiful lotus decals on it.
