I've been tasked with getting rid of/selling a few sewing machines. There is also a black Singer that seems to be a model 29-3, which should be easy enough to sell, but I don't have a picture. However, the other machines seem to be pretty specialized. Does anybody know what they are worth or even who I should try to sell them to? They are from a closed down shoe/luggage repair shop. Sorry for the poor picture quality, my camera flash is not working.

Find shoemaker/cobblers in your area or even other states they are probably specialized to that type of industry.If they are interested see how much to ship then add shipping to your asking price.

... maybe advertise on bulletin board at a farm/feed store or agriculture supply store or a Tandy leather store. Places where horse people go, livestock sale barn.
A tent and awning place.
I don’t think that kind of machinery ever gets out of date...

I han't thought about tent/agriculture applications, but it makes sense. It's too bad we don't have many of those nearby us, but I'll look around.

They are old but will sew leather and canvass. The new ones cost a fortune. I would try FB market place and advertise them just as you described them here.
I have an old singer with the red eye design. On American pickers they paid around 900 for one but truth be told I would be lucky to get 250.

I agree with flint hunter. These are commercial machines and the old machines are easier to work on. A start up entrepreneur could start making hand bags customs leather goods..you name it.Like finding an old power hammer people will come from all over for it. What you have is worth thousands if marketed correctly.
Check specific forums that specialize in these types of items. Good luck!
