    Watching the bidding war on Ebay, FUN

    I have been watching Ebay for sewing machine pricing. A TOL combo just sat at the starting price for days and in the last couple of minutes before the auction ended the price jumped 650$!! It was fun to watch it to the end. You had better know what your top $$ to be the winning bid those last seconds as they count down. Machine was listed for $4200.00. SOLD for $4850.00. I would chicken out at that price point. The winner got a great price for a machine that has an MSRP around $12,000. Sigh...

    Anyone buy a TOL sewing machine on Ebay??

    I would be too afraid to spend that much money and not have a store/business behind me.

    Not a sewing machine but there used to be a seller who would put up bundles of 3-5 Moda charm packs. She started it at .99 and I know I got into a few bidding wars when it came down to the wire! Sometimes I won, sometimes I didn't but it sure was fun! I set in my mind what I was willing to pay and didn't go over it.

    The most expensive priced machine in the brand. It was the Janome 12000 that the
    MSRP ( manufacturer suggested sales price) is $12,000. Of course no one will have to pay MSRP if they bargain with the shop but still, $4850.00 is an incredible price. It was supposedly "hardly used".

    I bought a used Viking Quilt Designer off eBay. Lots of extra feet, books and goodies. I think I paid $650. It was a great deal and is a wonderful machine.

    I have purchased many things off ebay and always been pleased. However, I have never purchased anything that high in price.
