    you wouldn't believe the girls down here who get hooked up (literally) with meth heads and the next thing you know, you see them getting arrested along with the 'boy'friend and a few other unsavory characters and the baby and toddler are taken away because they were in the same room as the meth lab...
    and they are all scratching away at their 'methmites'... and look 100 years old...
    OTOH that woman probably raised the brat in the first place accustomed to gimme gimme gimme and I want it so you better give it to me - which is why she's winding up ponying up for this latest whatever-it-is.....
    Wow, all that from a Craigslist posting? I am guessing that the woman may have started quilting and spent like crazy and then lost interest. Lots of folks start a hobby and spend big and then never do it again. And I was just guessing that maybe the daughter was getting a divorce, it mentioned helping with a car which can sometimes go with getting a divorce.

    I agree! I just took a look at all the other replies to this thread and I'm mind boggled! Where did all this venom come from? For gosh sakes! All the poor soul did was place an ad on Craig's List, which is free. She must be in an awful bind to be willing to sell all of her stash of quilting stuff like that. If this is not a fake, and I somehow feel it's not, she's only doing what any loving mom would do if she had no available funds to help her daughter. She's willing to sell what is worth a lot to her. Even if it should not be worth 500.00 , SHE thinks it is, obviously. And maybe her DD doesn't even know she's doing this. I sure hope the poor lady doesn't belong to this forum. How would we explain ourselves if she happened to read all this?

    :( :oops:

    WOW. even if I had $2000. I think I could get more than that, unless I bought a sewing machine. God bless. Penny

    I hope the daughter can indeed get out of a bad situation.

    She does not mention that shelves or storage units are included.

    Maryse...you just gave me a fright when i saw your new avatar!
    Then i adjusted to it, hehehe.
    Back to this subject...looks like it worth at lease $350 if you had
    that kind of cash upfront. It does have a few good many items altogether., when you read what all she has.
