    toy singer 20-10 maybe

    Saw one tonight in a shop a out 30 or so from home.
    A sweet little cutie. Id say excellent to good cond. The wated $95 with 25% off.
    No table clamp. Cardboard box looked old. How do i know the worth?
    I wanted to spend $35-$50. This little girl was shiny black and had the seal sinver on the brass plaque.
    I couldnt cind a serial number.
    Any opinions on weather to buy, or pass up and the value would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

    Don't know about your area......I paid that much for mine and was glad to get it. Yes, they do seem to be around the country but you have to be where they are. I have no box and no clamp either. I sit it on my kitchen counter with a spool of thread on it so when I get put on hold on the phone I stand and turn the handcrank .I have 4 toy machines
    but that is my favorite one. I'm sure you will get lots of opinions but I don't spend a lot of time searching for these kind of machines.

    When you say Model 20-10 are you intending to refer to the electric/motorized version? If so and it is good shape that IS a good price.

    If it a manual version that might be a little overpriced

    You should go on ebay and put toy sewing machines in your search bar. I didn't pay over $50 for any of mine.

    But when you do, do an advanced search and look at the SOLD prices. That way you don't end up paying too much because you looked at the asking prices from people who smoke a little too much "mother nature"....

    I've seen 99s priced at $800 - $1000 on ebay,... but they don't sell. Then of course sellers on kijiji/craigslist look at that and figure they're offering a "deal" for the machine they have at $600. *sigh*
