    this is near my sister and trust me...they had to go to ebay because nobody in that area would pay more than $50 for this one! In fact my sister bought a lovely White for just $25

    Either that or were checking their prices against ebay. What's up with that lately!? I've been seeing high triple digits for machines that I know aren't worth that.

    Of course if they are going to be worth that, I guess my retirement plan is in my sewing room. 13 machines and growing.

    I think this one's my personal favorite:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/SINGER-99-SE...item5ae36ae27e

    It's on sale for $719, from $899

    Most of his ads are "out there".
    He states in the ad that the "timming" has been checked.

    Glenn, I think a big part of the problem is that someone sets a price, they don't know what its worth, and posts it on ebay. Then people check ebay to see what theirs is worth (but don't check sold prices, just the asking prices.) and assume that theirs is worth the same, and naturally they've picked one in the higher range of the pricing, because theirs is obviously in better shape than most out there.... it snowballs. I've seen the "thrift" stores around here doing that for pricing lately. Sewing machines are outrageously priced around here.

    You will laugh at this one even though it is not a vintage machine. This poor girl needs to get herself one.

    That description is hilarious! Poor girl needs an exorcist and a therapist for starts. Wonder if anyone bought it?
