I guess I shoulda asked these questions here instead of the main thread. But please see below as I could use your expertise.
I have a coupla questions for you vintage singer owners. I am going tomorrow to look at a Singer 301A that was listed on Craigslist and the seller is asking $80 or best offer. When I spoke with the seller today he didn't know the overall condition of the machine but said that he knew it was used over one year ago and has been stored in his garage since then. He only wants it gone.
My questions are: What is an averge selling price of a Singer 301A today? What particular things should I look for when inspecting the machine? Would I be out of line to offer him $60 or less? Is $80.00 a fair price? Anything I need to look out for? Any attachments that should come with this particular machine as I know it slant needle machine? Any help you all can provide is much appreciated.
