    I just looked at a sewing station and bookshelf that I spotted on craigslist. The gentleman is selling his late MIL's household items and house. There also happens to be a Qsnap quilting frame and a Pfaff 1151 sewing machine that fits in the sewing station. He has no idea how much the frame and machine are worth.

    I'm buying the sewing station and shelves for $100, don't really need the machine or frame, but if I get a good deal, may just grab them. My question: what do you think would be a good price for all the items?

    That is an extremely good deal on the bookcase and work station! My husband is building me a sewing center, along with the mechanism that raises the machine. We already have $500 in materials...so your deal is outstanding! We're using cherry wood, which gets costly, but that station looks very good for that price! I would think the other 2 items would be worth another $100.

    Be careful Ladies/gents There is alot of crime on line and you really need to check it out. I think those prices
    are to good to be true.
