I have a question, what is an average price for a singer model 15-91 with a gaggle of feet attachments in a nice vintage sewing box? the wires need to be replaced (has some cracks) and there is some wear on the scrolling in the front from use.

the machine is coming up for estate auction real soon. it is not in a cabinet, it works, there are several feet attachments and they family said the mother took very good care of the machine and she used it often. there are no rust spots except for the obvious wear the machine looks fine.

i would like a good idea of how high to bid on this machine.

Hard to tell you how how to bid. I got mine in cabinet several months ago for $25, and as typical for this 'work horse of a machine' it needs rewiring too.

I paid $12.50 for mine at a garage sale. I don't recall a gaggle of feet (giggle) but it didn't need re-wiring, and it was in a nice Queen Anne cabinet. This is its picture - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-22150-1.htm

If the attachments are in a "puzzle" type wooden box, the box would add a little value.

Since it needs re-wiring and is not in perfect cosmetic condition, I would say something on the order of $30 would be a reasonable price. If the box is a wooden puzzle box in decent condition, then max price would be $50.

i bought a cabinet like that at an estate sale for $8.00; it has a deeper wood finish. i sanded and restained it for use as a decorative table. if i get the machine, i will just need to figure out how to attach it to the cabinet.

Funny - I wouldn't take any amount for mine. So unable to give any idea of a value.
