    Downsizing my vintage machine collection

    I have several machines that need a new home. My space is getting way too full!! One is a black FW, then I have a Singer 99, and a couple of machines that are in cabinets as well. All of them sew very well.
    Asking $150 for the 99, and 275 for the FW. In cabinet is another 99 and I also have a late 1800's Singer Sphinx treadle in cabinet for $75 (the treadle hasnt been sewn with)
    I have photos if anyone is interested. thanks

    I put machines on CL to sell locally - or you can sell them on Ebay if you can figure that out and figure out how to ship them across the country
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Wish we has a section here for buying/selling/seeking vintage and antiques machines and parts. Recycling in our own community? I find Craigslist can be difficult for sewing machines- lousy pics and descriptions, and wasted gas.

    Even just a section for parts would be fantastic!

    I have an antique one I'd like to sell.

    I have an antique Singer, I think they call it a red spot.
