    Yeah I know I have paid that for 1 and if you look online there are some that are selling in the $20 plus range on some websites.

    Seems as if vintage clothes patterns are quite popular these days and some of them go for what I consider a large price.

    Try googling vintage clothes patterns to get an idea, one page sells nothing but vintage patterns and the older the more they cost.

    Good Luck!!

    I got on it with no problem but it will just be too time consuming for me . they want each pattern listed separately with company, size , and I don't remember what all else. Not allowed to sell a big lot . I have over 130 patterns from the 40 or 50's to the 70's I just don't have time to list them all. I would be here until next month. I think I am going to try craigslist

    I would email the moderator to explain your dilemma and ask if you could list them as a lot (or smaller bundles). To me, anyway, vintage patterns are different from other patterns because they appeal to vintage collectors (not necessarily to someone who needs a specific size or brand or style of item). Or perhaps they could be bundled into categories such as children's, ladies, costumes, toys, household items, that kind of thing.
