    How to sell a sewing machine?

    I have a Janome and have posted it for sale on e-bay classifieds, Craigslist, and SewUsed.com. I plan to put up a poster at 1 or 2 fabric stores that don't sell machines. But to increase the number of potential viewers I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for on-line posting sites.

    The dealer I'm buying a new sewing plus embroidery machine from will take the Janome on commission but will charge me 1/3 of the selling price. So I'd obviously prefer to sell it myself.
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Facebook.
    Our local quilt shop lets us put up signs on a bulletin board. I've sold one machine that way.
    Also, our local sewing machine repair guy will by and sell used machines.

    I'd never heard of Sew it's for sale. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a try and let you know.

    If you really want it to sell--put it on ebay for auction. You can always put a minimum bid. I bought my Featherweight on there and paid extra to have it packed at a ship and pack store.
