My semi weekly visit to Goodwill produced a new girl to add to my little collection of vintage sewing machines. I almost passed her up because she was in a plastic case that had a tag on it for $19.99. But thank goodness my curiousity got the better of me. With my senior citizen discount the cost was $17.99 plus the governor's share.
She is very clean, everything turns smoothly and the wiring and foot pedal looks pretty good. I asked my DD what we should name her and she suggested Peggy Sue because she is looks like a 50's gal. Oh yes, the bonus was the wooden spool of thread and the red spool thingys.
