    Singer Featherweight Machine from Goodwill-Florida

    I thought I had posted this earlier, but I think I must have accidentally deleted the post before I posted!

    Oh, dear!

    Several months ago, my son was in the local (North Central Florida) Goodwill store. While perusing for any old electronic/audio equipment, he found a Singer Featherweight Machine. The machine has no cabinet, but it is in absolutely immaculate condition. He paid $50.00 and I think he really got a good deal! Your comments please!

    Thank you.

    He got a GREAT deal. I would have picked it up for $50.

    By "no cabinet" do you mean "no case"? At any rate, a FW in nice condition is a STEAL at $50!! Congrats!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Yes, I do mean "no case". I can't believe how good a condition this thing is in. If it hadn't been, my son would never have bought it. Since he worked as a sewing machine mechanic for 14 years, he has a great deal more knowledge of the machines than I. I can operate them -- pretty doggone well, but I am NOT a mechanic (that's a really valuable skill!)

    I am a central FL quilter and I looked and looked at goodwill for machines. It's very competitive there so he did very well! I passed up a Japanese singer clone(salmon pink) in a cabinet with all original accessories because I did't want to pay the asking price (before I knew values). I often think of that missed opportunity.

    I will post a picture! For something so small, she's a real beauty.

    Sounds like you are close to me. I never see any Featherweights around here. Nice find.
