    Hello everyone- Live in Northern VA, and have an old Blaze Princess that came with the farmhouse. I'm getting rid of the stove- after a tough farming season i got to sell what I can. I have no idea what I should begin to ask for it. Can anyone give me some guidance on value? Should I sell on Craigslist? Stove has some surface rust, and isn't beautiful, but seems to be really solid. Looks like it's a pretty old stove, but not sure the year. Thanks so much.

    Welcome, a search of Cl and fleabay will give you a ballpark figure. Maybe some of the BK owners will chime in with a better idea on value and pictures will help. I don't think you will have any trouble selling a BK, even if it is a bit old....great stoves.

    Depending on condition I would start at $600-$700.

    Thanks for the replies so far- $600-700 sounds amazing. Not sure if mine meets that condition criteria- definitely needs a wire brush and some paint! IMG_1293.JPG I looked for the model number all over but couldn't find it, although you experts might know it by sight. All I found underneath where it says "Outside Air Cap P?N 3223, A component of outside air kit P/N 0150". I'll try and include some pictures. Thanks again so much.

    Wow that thing is rough, not seen one in that rough of condition before, I think you might be lucky to get $200-$300 for it.

    Thanks for the input, Mellow. I'll probably ask around $300 then, and go from there.

    If you spend a couple of hrs, wire brushing & painting it with VHT(1200 degree) paint from the auto parts store, clean out the inside and fix the bricks I bet you could do better than $300.
