    I bet it is the spools and pins that really makes it valuable.

    Do you think they want so much money because they really want to keep it? Or did they just leave off the decimal point...

    This scares me. I have a vintage machine for sale. I'd like to get $120 for it, but I haven't gotten any offers. Am I like these people you're making fun of? I don't really know what it's worth.
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    Show it to us and we'll give you a good estimate. We are knowledgeable and honest to begin with, which most of the people who ask sky high $$$ are not knowledgeable.

    You'd think at that price a machine WOULD come with it!!!!
    I needed a front entry table - something to display my hand crank 15 w/ the gingerbread design. I bought a table like that, only the base is from a Minnesota B, for $40 at an antique/craft co-op. Which is funny because I got the Miinesota for free and could have taken the irons then, but I didn't think I would have a use for them.

    I have her listed for sale on this board at http://www.quiltingboard.com/items-s...ml#post5055893 and there are lots of pictures on there of her. I would love to get an honest opinion of her, but didn't know where to start

    Thanks!
