    It really varies. I have seen them on EBay for $250 to $500!!!!! Obviously a good case and accessories should fetch a better price. They are hard to find other than on EBay as there seem to be fewer of them. Are you looking to sell or buy? Maybe you can post an ad in the appropriate spot on this site according to the rules.

    I just got an email about one in Canada. She was asking $150 plus shipping of $60 (to me). I already have 1 white FW...I think I paid $275 but it had no case and no accessoriess. It's been a while (about 9 months) since I bought it and I think prices are coming down a little.

    You can find cases on Ebay, occasionally. They also have nylon fabric ones with a cute FW on them for around $30 plus shipping. I like the rolling sewing machine trollys from JoAnne for $40 something with a coupon. It would hold your FW and almost all your other traveling gear in one handy place. When we have a sit-and-sew, they roll in by the dozens.

    Surprisingly I see them fairly regularly on the Goodwill website as well...www.shopgoodwill.com.

    I bought mine a couple of years ago and paid 225.00 with a beautiful case and accessories. But I've also seen them listed in my area for 500.00. I couldn't tell if it sold or not. Do you know they are not as quiet as the black ones and they are a little smaller than the black ones as well? But they are as cute as could be!! I personally would keep looking on Craig's list in your area so you can test it out before purchasing. I've done a search every Thurs and Fri for estate sales with Featherweights and have come across a few of them. That's how I bought three of my black ones! You just have to be there when they open.

    I just bought one for $270.... she had just been cleaned and is in great shape, but her case is in sad shape. She didn't come with any extra feet, but I have extras from my other ones... I really love them....

    I "accidently" stopped in at an estate sale which I normally shy away from and came across one that was under a table covered under tablecloth by bumping into it...but anyways i got it with the case and accessories for $30. Thought i did take it in for cleaning/checkup it was $70 so all in all I did get a great deal. I keep seeing them on ebay for 299 on up to 500.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !
