    I just found this on Craigslist and it's not far from work. I just need to know what you all think their ballpark value is.

    Value is based on condition which is not always obvious in the photos and what you are willing to pay! You seem to have a lot of pricing questions and one good way to get an idea is to go to ebay and do a search on closed auctions. That way you can see what other people are paying.

    In my part of Ontario, featherweight prices have cooled off a little. I see them advertised on Kijiji (Canadian version of Craig's List) from $150-$500 and I am quite sure the more expensive ones are just not selling as I often see the same machines advertised again and again. They may command more money in your area but I know that I could buy one for $200 or less in my area.

    I agree....FW prices have come down over the last several months. About $225 is max I would pay (and did pay for mine a year ago). The 15 in the parlor cabinet is nice looking, so maybe $125?? I wouldn't pay any more than that, even if it is in pristine condition...less and much less if there is any damage or repair needed to cabinet or machine.

    I'd sure like to go through those boxes of attachments with the 15!!

    I agree with jljack on pricing!

    Yes, with those 3 oil cans that are visible in the pictures, there are bound to be great attachments in those boxes!

    ArizonaKat,

    Which consignment mall are you going to? LOL We used to hit them all in the Phx valley area when we used to live there.We would start at one end of the valley and finish at the other end. Sure would like to see what else is there in that store.

    Both look good!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.
