Hi, I need to unloads some stuff and have my grandma's older Nelco ym-7 sewing machine. Excellent condition in the sewing cabinet with all the accessories. How much is it worth or could I get for it? Kirsten
all the nelco websites
Nelco sewing machines do have value on the antique and vintage market but it is limited as there are so many Nelcos (as well as vintage sewing machines out on the market currently).
The internet has severely brought down their value even in mint condition with all accessories. Finding the right venue of sale is going to be key to getting the best price.
Its value on the online market would be in the 55-70.00 range. I would suggest a local venue or craigs list to find a buyer who will appreciate and use your model. Even a sewing shop may have a wall wear people could post their machines.
I hope you are not too disappointed. I like to tell people the truth so they know what to do with their items but I hope you do not take it out on the messenger. :)
Best wishes, Dori
