What is the value of a Singer sewing machine 500A?

I have a singer sewing machine 500A with sewing table, original accessories and box and the manuel. It is in excellant shape. I am the 2nd owner. The sewing table does have some spray paint on the side. The original owner was going to paint it but stopped at that one side. I paid nothing for it. It was on Craigslist for free.What is the value?

Hi, I’m a sewing machine tech and collector. I also own one of these 500′s ( the Rocketeer) and watch them all the time on eBay. People do pay up to 400.00 for these but they are getting ripped off by some guys who call them industrial machines. They are not. They are all metal geared and have an internal motor but they cannot sew through heavy leather or anything heavy on a consistant basis. But the sellers do show pics of them do such. Which they will but they are not meant to do it steady all the time. With the right needles, tensions and thread almost any tabletop machine can do that.
It would be fair to pay 250.00 for a pristine Rocketeer with all the attachments, cams, etc. But for an average one that just works and has been proffesionally cleaned, oiled and adjusted I put the value at 150.00. Less than that these are 50 to 100.00 machines.
Then again any machine is only worth what someone is willing to pay and you are willing to accept.
As far as the table, well, they are a dime a dozen. If you refinish it and it looks nice I would put the value of it all at 200.00 . Because thats as high as I would be willing to go and it would have to be perfect.
Nice find on Craigslist. Don’t sell it though. I don’t think you would find another for a long time. Use it and have fun with it. To replace it with a new machine that can do all that it does would cost at least a couple hundred, that would be the insurance value. Again, nice find.

Mademoiselle Chanel


Mademoiselle Chanel


$4.49


For readers of The Paris Wife and Z comes this vivid novel full of drama, passion, tragedy, and beauty that stunningly imagines the life of iconic fashion designer Coco Chanel?the ambitious, gifted laundrywoman?s daughter who revolutionized fashion, built an international empire, and become one of the most influential and controversial figures of the twentieth century. Born into rural poverty, Gabrielle Chanel and her siblings are sent to orphanage after their mother?s death. The sisters nurture Gabrielle?s exceptional sewing skills, a talent that will propel the willful young woman into a life far removed from the drudgery of her childhood. Transforming herself into Coco?a seamstress and sometime torch singer?the petite brunette burns with ambition, an incandescence that draws a wealthy gentleman who will become the love of her life. She immerses herself in his world of money and luxury, discovering a freedom that sparks her creativity. But it is only when her lover takes her to Paris that Coco discovers her destiny. Rejecting the frilly, corseted silhouette of the past, her sleek, minimalist styles reflect the youthful ease and confidence of the 1920s modern woman. As Coco?s reputation spreads, her couturier business explodes, taking her into rarefied society circles and bohemian salons. But her fame and fortune cannot save her from heartbreak as the years pass. And when Paris falls to the Nazis, Coco is forced to make choices that will haunt her. An enthralling novel of an extraordinary woman who created the life she desired, Mademoiselle Chanel explores the inner world of a woman of staggering ambition whose strength, passion and artistic vision would become her trademark.
