Default My Featherweights from Goodwill

Hopefully, I've finally figured out how to post pictures! I've been lucky enough to find four Featherweights and a Featherweight table at two local Goodwill stores.
1952 Featherweight - $12.99

1947 Featherweight - $11.99

1936 Featherweight - $13.50

Featherweight Table - $9.99

Just found another 1952 Featherweight at Goodwill for $18.99

Holy Gaucamole, Batman! Those sure are some impressive prices!!! Our local Goodwill knows what FW are worth and you can't buy them for under $150 each. Never, ever see the tables around here.

Wow, wow, wow! Good for you! You will love your machines.

Yeah, I would love to find one at that price. I've always wanted one but could'n't afford one.

Goodness, just look at those prices. I managed to get a mid 1950's one with no accessories on eBay for 100 last year, but they go for up to 600.

I have never seen one in a charity shop.

I've looked for years, have never seen one in thrift store. No wonder, all of them must be in your neck of the woods!!

What designates a table as specifically for a Featherweight?
and I’m in the same boat as the others-our Goodwill prices most things at near-retail price. Never any sewing machine bargains!
