    Wow, those first two prices are high. I paid $15 for mine. I do notice Craigslisters often are way off on value of things! Usually on the high end.

    Wow! Gretel - the 15-30 with the Tiffany decals, was $20 on CL and the White was $13.99 at a Goodwill store.

    For what ever reason these have not caught on like the FW or the Singer 301 - they are a good all around machine. They are easy to work on and you can get parts. Yes there are people trying to get a couple hundred for one - but then you can pick them up for $30 or $40 in fantastic shape - from what I've seen in the $15 range they probably need something worked on. Check the wires to make sure they are not cracked or exposed.

    OMG How could anybody up there pass up that Coronado machine? That is the most retro thing I have ever seen. Cool.

    This is my 15 clone that I bought on ebay last year. After I saw Startlite/Jan's post of a similar Compac machine, I started watching ebay, CL, and local sales for a similar machine. I only bought it because I love the color, but it turns out I also enjoy sewing on it and have completed one top using this machine.
