    " I was only able to spot one on ebay at a starting price of $499." Just because some dumbo lists their machine for that price on ebay doesn't mean it's worth it. Otherwise, I'd list one of my machines for $1,000 and that would make the other one worth that much too and I'd start rolling in the dough! Cracks me up that people really think "listing" prices on ebay qualify as appraisals. They really ought to be looking at selling prices not listing prices.

    Love it, doesn't everyone want a machine you can't get needles and bobbins for? And the machine listed for $1000.00 with no picture, that ad really takes the cake.

    It's obvious these people are getting their values off Ebay...

    I was just reading some of these to my husband...he wants me to list a couple of my machines...he said " There are bound to be a fool that would pay these prices." I better make sure to inventory my machines...good thing is that he doesn't know where the 221 is located, or that the cabinet that holds my embroidery machine actually has a machine in it.
    Thanks Charlee...these gave me a very much needed laugh...ROFL...

    Here's a model 15 "Red Eye" (Actually, they are open to offers, might need to try to rescue it and turn it into a hand crank. Any idea of what to offer? http://rochester.craigslist.org/atq/2732838452.html

    And for $100 - take your pick a wooden ironing board (maybe I shouldn't have sold mine at my yard sale!) He has had this listed and relisted for more than one year!
    http://rochester.craigslist.org/atq/2786412407.html
    or
    or you could have a Davis treadle
    http://rochester.craigslist.org/atq/2784843911.html
    or a New Home for $40
    http://rochester.craigslist.org/atq/2775890526.html
    (who wouldn't rather have the old ironing board?)

    I bought my DS's last fall for $5. Actually, it was a two for $10 deal, I kept the 128 and she got the 66 - in the same exact cabinet.

    I just got a New Home, if I could hide the Davis for a bit, I'd be on it! Not sure were I'd put it, but I'm really loving the treadles and hand cranks. If some one wants it and is planning a trip to upstate NY, let me know! I'm on the look out for a really nice looking hand crank, if and one knows of one let me know. I've given up on eBay.

    Well maybe the Chicago antique dealer was a bit pricey but I *heart* those #42 cabinets. I've only ever seen one for sale in my neck of the woods.

    That cabinet needs about $40 worth of work at least....so, I'd say $35 is a good offer. Especially since we don't know what's in the cabinet...like buying a pig in a poke! LOL

    I wonder if Billy would even tackle this one. Poor baby, I think she is a goner.
