    I saw this at a local thrift store Thursday. It was calling my name. My daughter has a machine that doesn't work so well, this would be cheaper than fixing hers. The price $ 15.00. I brought it home and it sews like a charm. It was in the original box, with accessories.

    Good find. Great price. Every time someone posts something from the thrift store, it makes me want to hurry to one of the stores.

    Me too, but I never find anything good. I even look at the quilts to see if I can find something that's been abandoned.

    Great find!!!

    Lucky you ... FYI many of the White machines were made by Viking. but as I found out ... the feet are not all interchangeable. Only a very few.

    What a beauty. Too bad our local thrift shops have highly inflated ideas of what their products are worth. I usually go out of town for such shops.

    I found an older White a few weeks ago (mfg around the early 70's) and paid $25. I thought I had a real bargain(well actually, I still do) but yours is even better.

    I'd never sewed on a White before but they are strong workhorses. They sound like they will last forever.

    My grandfather bo't my mother a White treadle in the early 1920's. She sewed on that machine for both my sister and me and I made maternity clothes and baby clothes on it. Still sews like a dream. Sure builds up the calf muscles in your legs! LOL
