Check your local Craigslist, charity/thrift/goodwill stores + pawn shops, that kind of thing.

I got mine for $20 on eBay, local pickup - although it needed some repair work that bought the price up.

If you can, make sure to try the machine before buying it. Have a scrap of fabric and thread - make sure it actually *sews*. This isn't a 100% percent guarantee that it will *keep working*, but is much better than just running or turning it without thread and fabric (or not testing it at all).

You'll have to buy locally - shipping one would most likely cost more than $30 by itself.

Same advice as kelley really, if your budget alouds try and find a metal one as these where made to last rather than the plastic ones.

Also ask family members if they can keep a listen out to see if anyone is selling/getting rid of one, I got mine off my boyfriend because his workplace was just gonna chuck it out
