    A lady I know has an old sewing machine she wants to sell for $300. What do you think?

    I personally think $300 is high, but I'm no expert. Just my thoughts.:)

    She can try Ebay or Craigs list and see what happens

    - me personally - would not pay that much for it, sorry

    Beautiful cabinet but I think $300 is on the high side. I wouldn't pay that much for it. JMO

    Very pretty, but I also think you can do much better-I bought a Singer 127 in very good condition for $60 about 2 months ago.

    I would think that is too much, also. She didn't even clean it up!

    Ditto for all other comments. The cabinet is beautiful, but I think the price is too high. There are so many great prices for similar machines I would be hesitant to pay this much.

    Free.
    In 1895 the Illinois Sewing Machine Co was founded using assets from the former Royal Sewing Machine Co of Rockford, Illinois. Will C. Free became the president by 1910, and organized a parent company - the Free Sewing Machine Co. Production continued in Rockford until 1958, when it relocated to Los Angeles, California. Manufacture finally ceased about 1969.
