    seriously...I do not understand why folks don't do their homework...a simple search of treadle machines on ebay will tell you what is selling and for how much...these folks are clueless!

    Problem with that is some people think old means valuable. Not always. That one, except color looks like the one my mom used to have right down to the drawers in the cabnet. After she put her back out helping move it she would have given it away. Actually I think she did a few weeks later.

    Evidently $2k doesn't go as far as it used to.

    It would have been nice if they would have turned some lights on when taking pictures,

    Didn't someone post an eBay listing last week where someone wanted $100,000 for a quilt-they said they were raising money for college. Who cares? If I spend $100,000, $2,000 or even $20, I want what I'm buying to be worth the amount. What you need or want for it has no bearing on the sale price!
    Silly people!

    I've been seeing this so much....via ebay and CL and I just don't get it. If you have to post it for 6 months straight on CL and it doesn't sell, doesn't that tell you it's not worth the $700 price tag you've put on it?

    My husband was in real estate and he says "doesn't matter how much you think it's worth, it's only worth what someone is prepared to pay you".

    Yup, and with the current economy, they feel someone will pay it

    yeah, but didn't you see the seller's user ID - "Glorious Antiques" - this is a GLORIOUS antique Singer.

    What if we all sent a message through the "Ask a Question" link --


    "ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!!!!"

    think they would get the point?

    I always assume the value of something is only what someone else is willing to pay. I've seen many items on ebay that are more used than buying a new one. Last week I found an out of print quilt book from 2000 that was $67. I don't complain I just don't buy it. The seller ends up paying insertion fees with no sale.
