    There are some deals in Indianapolis. Ask me how I know.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    It's not close to me, sadly. Well, 8 hrs through the mountains (each way)... I actually though about going this weekend when I saw it, but I don't have time. If it's still for sale at Christmas, though...

    Anybody looking for a featherweight box?
    Would it not be so cool if one of us owned the machine that came in the boxes??? Going to go check my FW serial numbers!

    I should put one up at a stupid high price and see if anybody calls... LOL They all want to get them for half price no matter what I put on them. I try to put prices that will sell and people still want me to go down.

    I answered a pictureless ad about a Singer for $50, she sent this and wanted me to make an offer. Should I? Obviously it needs work. That's a 127 right? Name:  CAM00656.jpg

    Personally, I wouldn't pay more than $10-$20 for that machine, but $50 might be a good price in your area.

    I agree. The slide plate is missing, is the bobbin and shuttle still there and it appears to be in rough shape but that could be dust. Hard to tell.

    I was kinda thinking it was in $10 shape but my judgement is usually off. This area isn't a hotbed of machines.

    The thief knew how to get the machine out of the cabinet??

    Wow, that's smarter than half the people selling on eBay/CL!

    I saw this "beauty" on ebay tonight. It looks like it was in the flood. But it works good!

    In the late 1800s it would more likely be laudnam or cocaine (both were legal then)!

    I cannot BELEIVE that this person is selling old cardboard boxes for $15...yes, they are stamped Singer model 221 but they are still...cardboard boxes...that someone used to store Christmas ornaments in...my guess is they are for the Featherweight remakes from the 80/90s.
    Any day spent quilting is a good day!

    I checked the serial numbers that were written on the boxes. The machine serial numbers date the boxes to 1950 and 1953.

    I'm deciding against it as well. Plenty of other machines in the sea.
