    Hubby loves to trade and many of the sewing machines we have, he traded swords & other weapons for. Just one of the many talents he has been blessed with.

    He traded for an old pistol then turned around & traded it for 2 Bowie knives, an M1903 US Calvary Sword, a WWII 8mm Mauser plus this beautiful White Featherweight.

    He had about $40.00 in the old pistol that he traded for all of these items listed above.

    I never thought I would come back home from our Memorial Day trip with a White Featherweight, plus a Singer blackside Godzilla finish 1952 Model 128 that we paid $30.00 for.

    Both machines work well. The Blackside machine is filthy and I will post pics after I clean it up.


    Thank you for looking.
    Blessings to all,
    Sandi

    Fantastic trade. I love the little white featherweight. I've bid on this type of machine 3 times on eBay. It always went above my limit. I found one on Craig's list and called about it. The lady sold it with in 1 hour of posting it. She had no idea how in demand it was. I think the white featherweight it the best.
