    I do not know which is worse, the price or the write-up... with wondrous stuff like....

    "This... Beautiful... Piece... Is.. A... One...Time... Only... Item... And... Once... Sold... Will... Not... Subsequently... Be... Available... Unless... Returned...To... Us..."
    Makes my eyes hurt just tying to read it.

    We should get a system going and then we should rate the ad... there needs to be a number for 'lame'

    Give "lame" the negative numbers: -1 for trending lame, -2 for definitely lame, -3 for lame + stupid

    LOLz!

    "Needs Work"

    Nice puddle. That cabinet would probably fold up like a wet taco of you tried to move it.

    The cabinet's probably done for but you could save the machine and treadle and possibly the drawers. $20 is pretty good value. It even seems to have its slide plate.
    Someone could take advantage of bad parenting and save this poor thing.

    Looks a bit too far gone even to me, except for the irons to be honest. MAYBE the drawers.
