    There wasn't a picture on the craigslist ad and I don't know who would have told her the value but her price is hefty.

    " have a singer genie 1970 sewing machine was told worth between $600-$700 and willing to take offers as well"

    I keep wondering are people really paying these over-inflated prices? People who just want an interesting antique for display maybe? Some of them get taken off craigslist so maybe they have sold.

    The first one listed is a 201, not exactly 'rare'. The second one gets no comment because my mommy always said ''if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all''.VBG

    I just betcha it is rare to get that much money for one. I agree about that second one.

    looks nice but it was his GRANDPA'S???

    I have been selling sewing machines mostly to men this time around. Men who sew or who want to sew. I've had to give some little sewing lessons. I get a big kick out of watching them do it. They are a blast. Who knows maybe Grandpa did sew a little. Very little judging by the use...

    Now it's getting ridiculous...$2000 valued at $4000 and it's a Imperial with a Singer manual so they didn't even get that right

    Ok, so I could not resist this one.... I had to reply to the ad.

    "No offense, but are you high?

    This is NOT a Singer sewing machine. It was made by the Imperial Sewing Machine Co.Birmingham UK (England)


    In all honesty,It should NOT valued at $4000 (unless it has some amazing connection to a historical person/place/event)


    I'm sorry if you were misled by someone else regarding this machine in the first place but I thought I would at least give you the opportunity to be aware of the truth.
