    What would it be worth? I've done some research without any results for the cabinet or a 380 machine?????? The pics don't help much. I'm not familiar with a cabinet of this nature, and you can't see more than the bottom of the machine...
    The "station" is available tomorrow at auction. I won't be going, but my uncle and aunt are. Should I have them bid for me? How much?

    It won't be a loss, I suppose, but I'm addicted to quilty/sewy stuff!

    open! DROOL!

    the closed pic was saved in the wrong format...here it should be correctly. I remember such a time when I didn't know anything about pics or how to make them work!

    I am thinking a 380 could be a serger? It is the only thing I can find when I do a search. Maybe they've gotten the model wrong. I don't know.

    I've never seen anything like this, so I searched the web. Found this listing on Craiglist:

    http://columbus.craigslist.org/clo/1431393936.html

    The cabinet was $1400 new. Looks like a different sewing machine from the one in your picture.

    People are often not interested in sewing machines at auction; however, the cabinet is unique and someone may want that -- especially to strip the insides and use it as a tv cabinet or other type of storage cabinet.

    Also found this ad from Florida, which sounds like the same type of thing:

    http://www.inetgiant.com/AdDetails/S...d-colo/1775669

    I'm thinking it's the cabinet that is Singer MOdel 280 (not 380), not the machine. Basically you should be bidding on the value of the cabinet to you, as the machine may not be anything special (but would be a nice surprise if it were).

    Also found this ad in Colorado:
    http://www.inetgiant.com/AdDetails/S...d-colo/1775669

    Just from the 3 ads above, the asking price ranges from $250 to $1,000 (for the cabinet). The machine probably has little relative value, but the cabinet is unique.

    Prism99, it looks like the one in her pictures. Very similar.

    I personally would not want this type of cabinet it looks really confining instead of comfortable. You can get something nicer for less money in my opinion

    do my eyes deceive me? do you have to store the machine on-end?

    plus, not enough workspace to the right?

    no way, jose' :?

    (ok. if they can get it for less than $50, it might make nifty storage for something else. and IF you could convert the table surface for pressing or cutting. otherwise, jose' still says no.)

    I have that cabinet, when i had to sew in the living room that cabinet kept my sewing machine and projects out of sight when I needed it to look neat I loved it then. now I have a sewing room (never neat) and I still have the cabinet now I put my Christmas decorations out of sight --still in the living room.

    So, Buttercream, did you have your aunt and uncle bid on the cabinet? Curious people want to know what it was auctioned for! :)

    Thanks for all the input on this. The "station" sold for $375. No, I was not the winner. YAY! lol! The more I looked at this, the less I thought I would really like it. As Patrice said, the machine would be stored on its side. That was not something I liked at all. I thought, well, I could always just set it in the cabinet (space permitting) and put it on the table when I got it out...but that kinda defeats the whole purpose of the table and the way this thing was made to work.

    I have a Saunders Craft cabinet in antique white alot like that except the machine doesnt sit down in. I am thinking I paid three or four hundred for it. There is a shelf underneath to store your sewing machine....my serger fits down there.

    I have that same cabinet. I purchased it new in the mid 80's. It is a fabulous cabinet and very well made. What you do is bolt your machine on the base. You can move that one piece on the right either up to the machine (like pictured) or down flat for more sewing room. You have to move it up around the machine to close it and put it back up into the cabinet.

    I don't remember what I paid for it, but it wasn't cheap. I had a full size Janome machine bolted on mine.
