    Uhhhh....

    "We found a Domestic brand sewing machine stashed in the house we moved into. We don't need it, and don't want it lying around.

    We also don't know anything about it so there is no point in asking a lot of questions."

    No photo.

    So to recap: We found it, paid nothing for it, know nothing about it, pulled a price out of our as... uh rump, don't ask us anything about it.
    I'll take brutal honesty over obvious liars with ridiculous prices. A picture would have been nice, though.

    That's completely true. In fairness, if they don't know, chances are good that the photo would be of the backside of the machine anyway I think I might have been put off by the "we don't know so don't ask."

    "I have a old sowing machine I don't know much about but would like so sell it to someone for a decent price of what its worth, its called the Kenmore n I believe it was made in 1933 far as I can tell thank you (no spam) please"

    I have a bunch of those godzilla machines, too. I can't seem to do anything with them - I wonder if he wants to know what I think they are worth?????

    I think we've finally found it! The machine that can sow cherries and mow lawn! ;-)

    As a designer, I will go out on a limb and say that chair is an incredibly ugly piece of furniture and I wouldn't want it in my house. It's best feature would have to be the superior 'role-ability' of the casters because I would use those to push it down an extremely steep hill never to be seen again!

    Good design should combine usefulness with beauty where possible, as the old sewing machine manufacturers seemed to understand pretty well

    I messaged the seller and confirmed there is a sewing machine in the table. I haven't heard back from my request for a picture of the machine.
