    There's one on SewItsForSale for $750. Usually the sellers there are pretty savvy so I'm surprised!!

    There is a recurring ad on Nashville CL for one at 750.00 but it does include the card table. Still too rich for me. I'll stick with my freebie and no table.

    Featherweights on Kijiji(Canadian version of Craig's List) have been advertised in the $150-$400 range lately. A white one was advertised at $300 yesterday on the Barrie site. Every little while I still see dreamers who want to sell old machines in poor condition for big dollars.

    The lady selling it is actually very nice- I emailed her to tell her about that high price. I asked her if it's a Centennial and even so they don't sell for much. I got one for far less than 300.00
    She said she looked it up on an antique website. Then she asked me my opinion.
    I told her probably more than she wanted to know LOL
    But she was very sweet and said she wasn't trying to rip anyone off but didn't know much about them.

    I guess b/c some of us all such old machine addicts we assume everyone else knows. :D

    Recently there was one posted in Pittsburgh for $1000. Sometimes I wonder where they come up with those numbers??

    If you just look and happen to catch the overpriced ones and you really aren't familiar with the market, I can see where it's easy to a. get excited and b. overprice. When no one buys she'll come down I'm sure, if she really wants to be rid of it.

    Here's one pretty similar for $800:

    She does have a card table with it, and they run about $125-$150. Ridiculous.

    At that price it will be a real antique before he sells it.
