Vintage White Brand Sewing Machine Model # SZ-230 Found at Goodwill for $20!

My Super Awesome Goodwill Find!

     So, the Bestie and I are really into thrift shopping, A.) Because it's fun, and B.) Because we are poor. None-the-less, sometimes on rare occasions we find something truly super awesome like this vintage sewing machine!! Eeeeee!!!  
      We took a little road trip to San Antonio to hit up the multitude of thrift stores the big city has to offer. We were just checking out at the last stop because we had planned to head home about 3 hours prior and after hours of shopping, rude people, long lines and sub-par Chinese food, we were done. The day had yielded less than I had hoped for....And then there it was...I had just paid the cashier for my small loot of items I don't need and we were walking out the door, when from behind the panes of an unlocked dirty glass case it sat, in all it's abandoned, broken, and old glory. I didn't care. I didn't care that the pedal was long gone, as well as many other crucial components. I didn't care that it was old, dirty and sadly would probably never function again. I needed that glorious, ridiculously heavy, for decorative purposes only sewing machine in my life. 
     Long story short, (because I could go on and on) it had a sticker price of $29.99 so I had the cashier ask her manager if that was the best price. Apparently it had been homeless for a while so she knocked it down to $19.99 for me. (I totally would have paid $29.99.) So I was now on my way home to try and explain to my husband that I just bought another sewing machine (I have 3 others that function) and it was the coolest sewing machine ever, and I will never use it. There are just some things that men will never understand. :)
     Anyway, I wish I could tell you more about it, like what year it was born and all that good stuff, but I haven't had a chance to research it. If and when I do, I will update this post.
