    no prices so maybe they are running a museum on CL....
    There are not only no prices listed, but the ad never even says the machines are for sale! Maybe they are just bragging that they have these machines!

    "I have five sewing machines. The first is a Union Special, the best I can come up with is that it is of the 1920's. I have two 1907 Singers that are not electric. Another from 1927 that is an early electric model, and I believe that it is suposed to be mounted on a table. And the last is a 1950 electric."
    Then pictures of old machines. LOL it is a CL museum...

    Here is what I sent to the person:

    "Pardon me, but are these machines for sale?The ad reads like you are simply informing us that you have them.
    No prices, not even the words For Sale.
    Assuming that they are for sale, do you have ANY price ranges?
    Thanks,

    Here is one where I'm wondering what the bidders were smoking ... not the seller. A 15-91 dated 1956 - very nice condition and presented very well too, a few accessories but no case. Bidding isn't over yet .. I'm sitting here watching it and wondering ... am *I* missing something??

    Seller started bidding at $49.99. Current bid is $571.00. Ends in about 30 minutes.

    ?????

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That 15-91 ended at $920.00. I'll bet that seller is celebrating tonight.
