    I think the 301 owner got confused between the "fully serviced and ready to sew" price and the "been sitting in my basement for 20 years" price.

    DH found this one - the price is right . . . though I'm not sure what you'd be getting . . .

    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/fuo/3886048720.html

    If I lived closer, I'd buy it hopeing for some interesting attachment in one of the drawers! Cabinet looks like MIL's - came with her Golden Touch N Sew. Foot pedal looks like a Singer.

    I've emailed that seller for pics, 2 or 3 times, and they have yet to send any. They did confirm that it is a Singer machine.

    Grant, yes it does. Fantasy-land 's research department is connected with Fantasy Island and the Love Boat. It specializes in extreme fantasies of machines worth lots of money combined with falling in love with the sucker, err buyer, of said machine.

    My 301 is running great & has 3 quilting feet, two bobbin holders, zipper foot, and all in a lovely cabinet. It must have been serviced recently, it runs like a charm. I was just wondering if it was worth more than $30, not to gloat, but to tell the kids to hang on to it if it is valuable. I will research how to get a manual, probably cost more than the machine!

    Add about $100 to that and you are good. Manuals are free at http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals just scroll down to search - before that is a box you put in 301 and hit search. Then you will have the option of a $15 manual or printing out a free manual.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I like this ad. I have a couple of family members I would like to sell too. Where do I go to get them appraised? I would name this machine Clark Kent. Unlike this machine, HE is about 80 years old,and is a Man of, well Steel, not Steal. I also like the manual. HOW TO USE AND ENJOY YOUR BROTHER. Ewww. There is a machine called a Sister. The manual for that says HOW TO USE YOUR SISTER. Again Ewww.
    Kind of funny but creepy at the same time.

    That Brother machine looks like it might be from the 60s but definitely not from the 30s. It looks very much like the one I got in 1964.

    Well, just look at this gem... only $400! The table is in SUCH good condition. And imagine the seller calling Sears and finding out how UNIQUE this machine is! ROFLOL

    I hope that the (Sears) people got a good laugh out of this like I did. But it is nice to know that the good folks at Sears knew some (misleading) things about a Singer is pretty good. I wonder if they know anything about Pfaff's. Or better yet, Kenmores!

    It's a shame that people can't be more creative and believable with their sewing machine lies.

    I'm beginning to wonder if making up all sorts of lies helps sell sewing machines??? Do they actually sell these machines or do they just collect emails and phone numbers so they can sell them???

    Mark, Totally agree with you minus the price of the Penguin walking foot. That is about right.

    Did they ask any of you?
    "any repair person can tell you, these things can be "dropped out the back of a semi trailer driving 70 on the interstate"- and still be fixable."

    OMG.

    Do you like the beer and the lighter on the table, and the giant screen tee-vee right behind the sewing machine? Lil scratched up indeed. Nice, um, price. (!)

    The price is right (free), but what is it? I emailed the seller asking for a picture or model number or description, but no response yet. If this isn't rescued today it might end up in the trash!

    Is a Bernina 810 vintage? Is it a good machine? This one is $100 which, just going by completed ebay auctions, seems like a good buy.

    Granted it's a 222, but $3,900? It doesn't even come with a penguin foot.
    It does have some pricey additions, *maybe* $300 for those?
