I have an older (probably 1950s) Singer Sewist machine that I want to sell. It works well and is built into a pretty nice table/cabinet.

I also have a White Speedylock 1500 serger that works well.

I am wanting to sell both of these locally, but am having a really hard time with pricing. I cannot find any info on pricing White sergers. I can't even find a website for the company. Have they gone out of business, perhaps? The Singer Sewist is so old I don't really expect to find much online, but the cabinet should count for something, right?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Take a look on Craigslist for sewing machines/vintage machines and on e-bay (search completed listings to see sold prices). Unless it's a collectable machine buyers are likley not to care about the brand, but will be comparing like features.

Remember, people can list for any price they like, it's what they sold it for that counts! (and also the convenience to you to have them pick it up rather than ship it). You could also try PR Classifieds.

A note of caution based on a recent Craigslist sale, CLEARLY state your return policy! (you can read my recent Featherweight posting for details, but don't let that deter you!)

Check Craig's list and Ebay for pricing ideas.
