    GOOD NEWS 1st: I answered an ad on Craigslist, the lady wanted $10 for quilt tops. I thought can't be very good
    ones. When I arrived I asked "Do you have any left?"
    She said, "you are the only one who called & you can have
    what you want for $5. each. They are pretty nice so for
    $31.00 I got:
    1 king top with matching backing (pink & burgundy)
    1 full top (white with nacy moons)
    1 twin top (white with navy poka dots)
    1 backing with Navaho design ($1.00)
    1 box bow ties cut out (white, blue, & yellow)
    1 box squares cut out (pink orchids & mauve solids)

    BAD NEWS: Answered another ad on Craigslist that I could
    not believe. Lady had a featherwight with case for
    $25.00. I thought cannot be correct. Well it was but
    another lady had called before me and she had 1st
    rights. I begged and offered her more, but she said
    "NO". The other caller got the treasure for $25.00.
    $25.00.
    I wanted to CRY, I have wanted one soooo long

    What a wonderful CL experience on the first one, and how painful on the second. :cry:
    I hope you keep looking and believing, it'll be there someday!

    And maybe it just wasn't your time yet. (?) How's that for a platitude?

    Yea for you on scoring the quilt tops. I do feel your pain on missing the Featherweight. $25 is just an unreal price!!!!

    Those tops were meant for you, the machine was meant for someone else. I actually admire the seller for keeping her promise to the first person. I have been looking for a feather weight too so I feel your disappointment. I believe that someday we will both find our featherweights and will be even happier when we do. I would love to see pics of your quilts when they are done.

    I agree with Gramma Nan. As much as it's hard for you not to get the FW I like knowing some people won't compromise their values to make a buck.
    Your day WILL come!! :D

    After getting the quilt tops and backing for such ridulous prices, I would say you one good deal for the day, two would have been too much. Maybe whoever got the FW needed a good deal in her life also.
    Cheer up and keep looking, your good deal is out there, you just need to find it.

    I'll take that good news with the bad news any day. You got some nice stuff for your $31 and I'm sure there will be another opportunity for you to get a Featherweight.

    You got some wonderful buys on the first one and I'm sure your featherweight will come someday.
