This answer was rated:

I have an old sewing machine that I am trying to sell/get rid of. Its a British Sewing Machine Type 3A in a 'mahogany' looking cabinet. My parents purchased it 2nd hand back in the early 1960's and I was wondering as to whether you could advise as to whether its considered an 'antique'

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Yes your BSM Sewing Machine Type 3A is considered VINTAGE and was made in the 1950's, usually an antique to be considered a true antique it has to be at least 100 years of age. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike

Hi I've already paid £13 for your previous response a further £15 to talk to you isn't really going to be value for money. Thanks anyway

HI, Yes you can try sites like ETSY, Craigslist, local newspaper or I would try a local auction house with a good reputation that has been in business for years that does good advertising but remember to use a RESERVE on your sewing machine so it doesn't sell for pennies on the dollar start out high because you can always come down you can not go up.
