    The neighbor down the street had a yard sale for the last two days. He said what he didn't sell was going in the garbage.
    Here are the five things my dil went down and pulled from the curb.
    I haven't cleaned them up yet, don't even know if they will run.

    Syl

    Commander Singer. It has the origional book that came with it. It says Quilting Machine.

    Be careful as it appears you may have a nut for a neighbor. For those not to sell, he must have had them really over priced. You DIL did good.

    My gosh! Not sure where you live in Florida, but all I find at yard sales around here is beat up old "silk" Walmart flowers. Fantastic. Looks like attachments even for one of them.

    Even if he had them priced really high it seems like he would have lowered the prices later in the day. I can't believe someone didn't make him an offer!!!!

    I love them all but if you want to sell the 500A - :thumbup: let me know. Even if it doesn't work. I need some parts.

    I can't believe the things people put in the trash. There are so many recycle stores for this stuff. Lucky you - hope you can use them. or whatever.
