    What could be worth $800 in this auction?

    https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/65351655

    Is it that silver thing in the third picture? I'm mystified.

    That's a lot of money to pay for a lot of duplicate gadgets.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I'm not sure but it looks like it would be the walking foot - they think is worth the money. I wouldn't pay that for any of those items. But maybe if you are a collector someone may be interested.

    I would never purchase anything like this...not even if they were gold plated. Perhaps they intend on trying to resale some of the items to re-coop their money. Wishing them good luck.

    In the little box directly in front of the green buttonholer case is a "penguin" walking foot. They go for a lot of money, certainly waaay out of my price range.

    I thought maybe there was a penguin walking foot for the featherweight. Those go for a lot of money but I don’t see one in this lot.

    The penguin foot is in front of the furthest right buttonholer in the first picture. It is in the picture with the 15-91 manual. It even shows the walking foot manual under the 15-91 manual I think the large silver attachment might be the the Swiss ZigZagger?? There is also a hemstitcher and who knows what else buried in those. I see several featherweight bobbins, so there may be some other goodies for either the 221 or 222.

    They've already had 50 bids to get up to that price. I wonder where the bidding started.

    I get a kick out of people thinking this is for the featherweight - I think Singer came out with the walking foot before the featherweight. Not that it does not fit on a featherweight, but it also fits on a lot of other Singer machines.

    But it seams as long as someone says "fits Featherweight" they get more $$ for it.

    I have one, and was very happy to get it for $500 several years ago. Prices go up and down for any collectable item.

    As to the Decorator - you can get them for several different machines. However that one is set up for a White, so wouldn't fit on any Singer machine. It sort of looks like a side clamp, but it clamps to the bar after the top clamp adaptor is removed. Kind of a drag to take on and off being that way.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    It's up to $1200 now. The answer to me is nothing worth that much.
