    hand crank

    Found a very pretty hand crank on Craigslist. Going to look at it tomorrow. It looks pretty clean, and she says it sews well. She is asking $135 which seem sorta high to me. What do you think? Thanks, Linda

    It does seem high. Sometimes people think vintage means big $$. It might be her starting point, expecting to come down in price.

    The monetary exchange is based on the desire to take possession.

    Best,

    I had agreed to buy a 99K hand crank from a guy on Craigslist. I got him to go down to $100 from $150. The night before I was to go down and pick it up, I call him, only to have him text me back that it had been sold for the full asking price. I was devastated! If it is a machine you LOVE, don't let a few $$ get in the way of you getting the machine. The time, energy, and money spent to look for another one has a cost as well. I did find one on ebay for $120 (including shipping) but it took hours of searching and combing craigslist, ebay, and shopgoodwill to find it. I could have been sewing instead! LOL!

    Weeee!! I bought her. She is very pretty; I just love her. And she runs very smooth. The lady is on Quilting Board and knew so much about machines.....I would loved to have sat with a pot of tea and picked her brain. Thank all of you for your input. Linda

    So glad you like her!! We may still get a chance with that pot of tea one of these days--we probably have a lot more than machines to talk about.

    Congrats! Beautiful machine! You should keep in contact with the lady and have tea with her. Sometimes the machines are the start of new friendships.

    Very nice machine. I would think $135 would be a fair price if the machine is really in the condition it appears to be in the picture.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
