    Yep, it's a featherweight. There are usually at least 2 on their site, recently they had 2 white ones! IMO they go for a higher price than do the ones on ebay and their shipping is pretty high.

    I have also noticed you never see them in their stores, only on their website. Almost not fair. Always looking for good machines at thrift stores---very few and far between. Now that being said, I have picked up a Featherweight at a garage sale for $25.00

    most Good Will stores don't put any machines on the sales floor any more. Unless something is broken on it. Usually if they do its for auction and starting price is high.

    Why do the idiots at auction places always photograph the back side of a sewing machine?

    So many of the NON Featherweight machines are going for less than $25 dollars with shipping at around $30. So, for around $50 you can take a chance on getting a good machine.

    From the chart it looks like this was born in 1041. She looks pretty nice.

    It is a featherweight. They have them on there frequently. Most of their stuff goes higher than EBay, it seems like. I've shopped on there a couple of times, but their shipping is prohibitive, even on small things. I don't shop at the 3 Goodwill stores that are within driving distance of me anymore. They even put all of the donated fabric they get on the auction site, so no reason to go in LOL.
