Default Morse Sewing Machine

So ... I am kicking myself! I have sent an email to the lady who posted the estate sale on craigslist and am hoping the machine did not sell ...

Does anyone know how much a little Morse would sell for? It was a portable in a round top case - not sure if it worked - almost went back to get it and didn't (that's why I am kicking myself). I think it was green, but I am not sure since it was sitting in a dark hallway.

I am hoping that no one else wanted it today and I can go back and get it tomorrow

I don't think I've ever seen a little Morse. All the ones I have seen were really heavy standard size machines.

To be quite honest, I don't think it's worth a lot of money. Many people don't like the older heavier machines. Although they were the "portable" of the time, they weigh a ton. If you carry one, you never want to rely solely on the carrying handle; always support from below.

They are a solid all-mechanical vintage machine, and tend to be workhorses. However, they are not in great demand, probably because of their weight.

If you really want it, then call and see if she still has it. Can't hurt.

Prism99 - it was heavy - I could barely lift it to move it around to take the cover off. It was just so different from anything I currently own.

It must not have been meant to come to my house - I was not able to call them so I sent an email to them - via craigslist where the sale was advertised - I haven't heard from anyone so assume it must be gone. Oh well ....
