How Much is My Sewing Machine Worth?
Thank you for visiting this page. We are often asked to give the cost or value of vintage sewing machines. Unfortunately due to many variables in the market place we are not able to do this. We do however offer some recommendations for determining an approximate value.
Recommendation 1: Visit a local second hand store, antique store or search on the internet for models similar to yours for a price comparison.
Recommendation 2: Visit your nearest sewing machine store in your geographic area. They may be able to help you determine your machines value.
To receive the highest value you may want to have the machine professionally tuned-up, clean and oil your machine before you put it up for sale. They may even be willing to transfer a limited warranty to your buyer if sold in there area. This would be a great selling point to a prospective buyer. Also offer with your machine some basic accessories such as needles, bobbins, zipper foot etc. Most important include an operators manual. If you do not have these items you may check them out on our web site under “Treadle and Vintage” parts.
Alternative Recommendation: If you have a machine you no longer want or have a need for you may consider giving it to a family member or a charitable organization. Some charitable organizations will provide you with a tax deduction donation receipt.
Please do not make your choice the landfill, all machine have some value to someone.
In addition we are sometimes ask if we purchase machines? We presently have over 300 vintage machines in our warehouse. So at this time we are not purchasing sewing machines.
All inquires concerning the value of sewing machines will be directed to this web page.
