    And on a forum this large I really don't know just how many people would be interested. Most of us already have a bunch of machines and know what we are looking for. (IE; not wanting plastic gears.)
    And the one time I looked at the for sale place here it was limited to quilting related items only. Which leaves out a lot of sewing stuff I'd think.

    You are correct in pointing out that this is a bit off your intended topic. But, since it has been brought into the conversation ...

    Eligible members are allowed to offer sewing machines for sale in our Thrift Shop/Yard Sale section but I don't recommend it. There are several reasons I don't believe it's a good idea:

    1. You are required to take at least 40% off current market value when calculating your asking price.
    2. You cannot use the "for new" value because all machines sold here are considered used even if they are new in the box. You have to discount 40% from the current market value of a used machine of that make and model.
    3. Since we are not a marketplace we will never offer any protection whatsoever to either buyer or seller. We don't get involved in disputes. Unless you are practically giving it away, that's a pretty expensive risk to take for either party.

    Whenever anybody asks, I highly recommend offering high end items like machines in a proper marketplace where you can set a price as high as you like and that offers protections to buyers and sellers alike. I'm afraid I can't make any personal recommendations. I've never tried to sell a machine anywhere.
    I Quilt, I Nap, I Quilt Some More ... Aaaaah, The Good Life!

    I also have an eddres you can use if you need to contact me with questions or suggestions that relate to our community: [email protected]

    Thanks for the clarification. It does help.

    CL was just an idea because I can keep it local. But some of the other suggestions have been good too. I'm still working on the details.
