    Agree 110% Charlee - sometimes it is just ignorance (the ads that use "vintage" and "antique" in the same description kill me) but usually people are trying to make something out to be what it is NOT just so they can hopefully get someone else to buy unawares at inflated prices.
    Hubby works PT at an antique mall - you wouldn't believe..................................!!!!
    ...it's a good thing he isn't on any commission, I know he has talked down more than one buyer LOL

    I really like the Worthpoint articles...and have learned a lot from them.

    Yeah, the auctions used to drive me nuts, too. But, I guess I'd be in the same boat if I were suddenly selling a bunch of stuff I really didn't know anything about. (which is the case with a lot of sellers)

    And old black Singer - must be rare. And antique. And one-of-a-kind.

    How true, how true! This article should be posted for the sellers on CL....$500.00 for a "antique" Singer.......too much.

    ~~~The sellers in my area actually have machines listed in this price range~~~
