How could anyone in their right mind RUIN a perfectly good piece of sewing equipment like that. Now if it was made of wood and some dummy did something like that, o.k., but a real machine to just ruin, I'd almost rather see one sit in a barn than be abused like that.I wouldn't want something that tacky in my house. I don't consider that thing art, but maybe he does. Probably someone who really thinks it's gold or something will be dumb enough to pay him some good money for it, but not that much.

It says OBO. Maybe someone will offer him $2.00 and win the bid.

Looks like a trinket to me, don't be surprised if it is less than 2 inches long and an inch wide. A knick knack. The postage gives it away, no one could ship a sewing machine for $2.21

The guy has it at that price to promote himself and his many other machines. He will consider any reasonable offer. All depends what he considers a reasonable offer. Who knows he might end up selling it for couple hundred dollars.

If you read all the comments made and his responses one realizes it is all for show and promoting himself and his talents.

He has done this to get attention and promote himself. He truly is not expecting that kind of money for it but I'm sure if anyone is stupid enough to fork it over he isn't going to refuse it.

He got everybody's attention, but should put his vivid imagination to better use. How about story telling to little kids?
Maybe his beer can collection for sale is a clue to his mental state? Too much beer at the frat house?

But what a bargain - shipping is only 2.21. I guess it doesn't need to be insured.
