    I've noticed that in a few instances of late. Follows a recent pattern of store managers becoming "antique experts"
    A nearby store raised the price of LP's to $5-6 because they're "collectable" when pretty much everything they had was barely worth a buck. So now it sits. Soon they'll follow another local GW store that doesn't sell vinyl because "there's no market for it". Sad since that store used to get a lot of really good jazz.

    I get that they're in it for good reasons and they should get a fair price but when they turn into those CL sellers that see a pristine example on eBay sell for top dollar and then think their sad case is worth the same money.....

    Well, imagine how lucky this person is to have one of the first sewing machines ever made! And, it's a "must-see", but apparently we are not allowed to see it since there's no picture! Gave me a good giggle this morning.

    That was one of my thoughts too, but with the rest of the ad being unintelligible, I thought it possible that they really just didn't care.

    Maybe that's why I've had the odd guy say no to a 401 before even trying it out.

    Translation: I'm too lazy to do the research on what something I own and want to sell is worth, you do it and tell me. A sure way to get less for your product.

    Here's one:
    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ532847455

    "Antique Raymond Sewing Machine-Cabinet-Machine-Accessories

    Family heirloom that is no longer of use. We are the lineage of the original family that purchased this machine. It is in working order, is original condition and only has one handle missing off the drawer of the unit. We will consider offers."


    How does a family Heirloom become unusable? In original condition? I doubt it was sold looking like that... Price isn't too bad though, considering condition and location

    Good oppurtunity for someone to own an uncommon Raymond sewing machine at a fair price from a family that has no further use of it and would like to see it go to new home.

    Pfaff alert!!!

    On the Kansas City, MO, Craigslist are 2 Pfaff machines. One is a 130 and the other is a 230 with the "Wonderwheel" thingy. The 130 is $250 and the 230 is $300. I am lusting after one of those two but pocketbook ain't that deep. The 230 ad did say to make an offer as she's cleaning house.

    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/atq/4112332373.html the 130
    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/atq/4129157943.html the 230

    Saw your other thread!!! Thanks for the laugh and sorry your day sucked!! I've been known to chop down a tree with an axe and then dig out all the roots for stress relief before. Good therapy for when you're mad at the entire world.

    Hey Chris,

    If you look at ebay and search those models, and select the SOLD option, it will show that these models sold for 75-100 for the 130 "shipping included" and the 230 was between 100 - 150 (shipping included)

    Might be worth shooting an email to the seller and showing them what they sold for.

    ok....

    let's start with a nut ball ad...
    http://provo.craigslist.org/atq/4101853991.html
    "Old wooden humpback case singer... Full size (not the quilting model) In good shape... Has a service on it... Not used since... Contact me, we will see what works for both parties.."

    then move on to two really nice Singer 12 deals....

    "interesting conversation piece and even sews if poorly."
    I suspect that it wouldn't take much to get it sewing well. Possibly just have to replace the user...
    Man I wish I saw machines like that around here.
    No wait. I'd be broker/more broke than I am now if they were around here.

    I have a quilting BFF in Utah ~ she says all vintage machines are priced like they're made out of gold. She was happy with my price which was $0.00 and a hug.

    The one is Connecticut is about 1/2 hour from my family. Oh how I would love for them to pick it up for me but no believers in feeding the addiction in them thar parts of the woods.

    Thanks for the info. DH saw these 2 ads and seriously said "NO, we don't have the room." Like that's an issue. Okay, it might be but that's besides the point.
