    I am not going to give up looking for one, but sadly this one is waaaaaay out of my price range.

    I bid on around 100 diffrent machines on Ebay before getting mine. Decide on your top price and just go for it. Have patients.

    If you think $800 for a featherweight is ridiculous, look at this 301 for $1000 - http://salem.craigslist.org/atq/2578114221.html

    DO NOT give that much for a Featherweight. You can find them cheaper, you just have to hold out & one will come along. My DH bought one for me for $250 off Ebay (which I was against cuz I don't trust Ebay) & surprised me with it one Christmas. Then the next summer he found one at a yard sale for $50. It took some work but for another $25 I got it running & in good shape. Maybe put out a "WANTED" in your local paper, the ads are free & gets out to many people. But what's with people trying to get $800 for a Featherweight? It must be made out of GOLD!

    Don't you think that things like this cycle around and become so expensive when everyone starts buying them up. It will go the other way soon. It's only worth what someone will pay for it.

    a 222 featherweight isn't even worth $800.

    there are plenty inexpensive featherweights on the market, just shop ebay if you can't find one local.

    I would never spend that on a FW. It took me a year of E-Bay shopping to find what I wanted. $250 including shipping and is beautiful (no manual or extra stuff). It's like it was packed away in a time capsule. I have seen the 222's go for that or more and some of the pretty colored painted ones.

    This is good advice. There are nice Featherweights on Ebay at a decent price if you are patient. and go with an experienced seller who knows how to ship one.

    Honestly I have never given anything more than $25 for a FW in my life but thats me LOL!

    I would hold out for the cheaper one and Goodwill.com is an excellent place to get one for a good price!

    That is insanely overpriced I think. A few years ago they were going higher but the prices have dropped (overall) quite a bit. Don't give up or give in to that; there is a better deal waiting just for you!
