    I think facebook has a buy/sell/trade page. We have one here for locals. You might see what you can find there.

    I was forgetting the fact it was a 6600. Those are hard to take to retreats and classes. I have one too (and love it) but it doesn't leave home.

    The MSRP for the 6600 is $2499, Depending on how old your machine is, I would not trade it or sell it without getting at least $1000 for it. Ebay has one for sale for $600 but no idea on the age or condition. Amazon lists the Juki 2010 for $678.00 and a google search shows prices from that price to $999.00. My guess is the big price difference is why you are not getting more for a trade in at a dealer.
    I have made 100's of bags on my 6600 and had no problems, can't imagine why the Juki would be better. But then I have no first hand knowledge of Juki machines. I just know that the 6600 is a real workhorse and very highly rated among quilters and sewers.
    I agree to check out guilds in your area and if not a member, contact them to see if you could be an ad in their newsletter.
    Good luck whatever you decide to do.

    I would try Marketplace on FB. Our neighbors listed a bedroom set and sold it within an hour after it was listed.

    Whoohoo! I just ordered a Janome HD9 last Friday, could be in today! Very excited! My Singer S16 will be rehomed to Atlanta to live with my daughter who loves making bags. Her picky Bernina won't do layers!

    Iíve sold a lot of things on Facebook Marketplace and done quite well! I sold my Babylock Sophia 2 to a friend and I got a fair price for it. My backup plan was eBay I saw two of the same machine on there and I felt pretty confident in listing it on eBay for the price I wanted.
    Good luck!
