Wanted: working sewing machine

I’m looking to buy a cheap, fully functioning sewing machine. Looking at Craigslist, most of them are either broken or antique. Is anyone looking to get rid of theirs (and Metro-accessible?)

I have a working sewing machine.. still have the box and user manual (I think). I upgraded my machine and have been too lazy to take pics and post it on CL. In Petworth, about a 5 minute walk from the Metro. 

Don’t dismiss “antique.”  I have a Singer from around 1930 that still works beautifully.  No zig zag, and you have to use only 100% cotton thread (instead of cotton-wound polyester)  but I’ve made heavy slipcovers and taffeta bridesmaid dresses on the thing.  They last forever and have fewer problems.
