    SFBay area again....

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/atq/3523952862.html - $500 - Wheeler and Wilson #9 "Needs restoration"

    I'm pretty sure that I have listed this before but it's still worth a view.
    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/atq/3521868172.html - $1000 Antique Singer in cabinet.

    Worst part is that if it was reasonable priced, I 'd be interested in it...

    1940's japanese sewing machine - $1000

    Antique japanese sewing machine in mint condition! This thing is almost new.(???)
    NO Pictures included.

    So, I text him and ask.. can I see a picture? he sent this.

    When I asked him politely why he felt it was worth $1000 he said because "these sell for $1600 but I am trying to keep the price reasonable"

    I mentioned that as a person who is a collector and beginning restorer of these machines I could assure him that they were worth more like $160 at best.

    his reply "that's fine, this one is not restored, this one has never been used"

    That one is very nice - the presser foot lifts up extra high - very well made and runs very smooth.

    Been nice meeting and getting to know ya'll. Thanks for all the great info on machines and sewing I have picked up.
    Administrators have informed me I must remove my bible verse from my signature, that is not going to happen.
    So, thank ya'll for teaching this old woman new things.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    So sorry to hear that Rose... disheartening to say the least.
