    My nearly 80 yr old Grandma has lost her house. She, my Grandfather and uncle who resided in the home for nearly 50 years all could be classified as pack rats. My grandfather was a TV repair man and loved all knick naks and antiques, My uncle was a ac repair man and tool junkie, as for grandma who will be removed from the home any day now; she collected any and everything between. As I stated earlier she has unfortunatly lost her home. She is subject to being forcibly removed at any given time. At that time all items left in the house wil belong to the bank that is taking her home. I would rather someone just make an offer so she could walk away with something to help begin the process of rebuilding her new life rather than see everything be demolished or auctioned and pocked by the bank. This is a HOARDER stlye house. PLEASE BEWARE most items in the home may need some work, such as old antique furniture needing to be refurnished. We got everything we could but there is still a lot left. Of the top of my head- a very old sleigh bed w/ matching vanity and dresser neither need much work at all other than cleaning, both with large original mirrors (bed has since sold), a very old white vintage bedroom set, a few singer sewing machines (one has a serial number that dates it to 1928 this particular one looks to be in good condition to me, it's a cabinet model with the whole foot dealy, then there are two table top units; one from probably the 70's and the other probably much older), a victrola or two one is still in rough working condition the better of the 2 is a floor model and there are several records, a hutch, litttle antiques ( antique roseville pottery, a model b Aladdin lamp from the 30's, 1 great working fedder's air conditioner along with a few others that would probably be best suited for parts, a ncr cash register that's in need of TLC the serial # on it dates it to 1907 but I'm not buying it, it doesn't really look that old, 2 vintage vacuums, a Kirby and a Hoover I believe, one still works, a newer refridgerator that would have to be cleaned out, two hand made fire place lights, a chandelier, two small t.v.s one large console television all three work just fine, there's also a medium sized t.v. that worked well last I checked - they're just older, a really old tall mirror that's pretty beaten up, a decent couch, a bar, a bicycle probably from 80's or 90's, a 70's Honda motorcycle, a unique antique round end table, one 1930's or 40's floor unit Magnavox radio, 2 victrolas one is a table top unit, the other a floor model in rough working condition, 2 wrought iron chairs, a very old dining room table in rough condition, 2 oak chairs, a more recent large desk as well as a smaller antique stationary desk, 2 shelties that need a good home, ect... If your inner picker is interested please give me a call or text anytime day or night if (I can't take the call I can most always respond to a text) and I will gladly walk you through the house. My name is Heather, I am her granddaughter and only close living relative (***) ***-**** TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!!! CALL ASAP she is staying there on borrowed time and without a doubt will be out by this weekend. Please do not respond to this add after this Sunday, as we will no longer have access to the house.

    hhhmmmmmm pac rats with a sob story - I wonder if it sells anything???

    Miriam, these are wonderful! You provided (or CL did) my laughs for the day! Thanks.

    By the way, did your son get hurt in the accident that wrecked his truck?

    This is an awesome machine up for sale. This is in excellent condition for it's age. My wife and I can't sew , we picked this up for a few more bucks then we're asking , I'm sure it's worth more we got it in an estate sale , it is gently used , has a foot controller , and a handy carrying case , I'm sure this would be an exceptional conversation piece at your dining room table. We're asking 275.00 , but will take a reasonable offer. These pictures don't do this justice believe me. E-mail us with any questions.

    I can identify with being out a vehicle - we went through that twice last year. My DD finally realizes she has to deal with the consequences of her actions. (Not hurt, by the grace of God. Just walking - Hehehe)

    I like the ad above - 'I'm sure this would be an exceptional conversation piece at your dining room table.' Can't imagine the crew I run with discussing a sewing machine at dinner!

    Sewing Machine - $15 (Durango)Works great, just needs a foot pedal if you want to be able to modulate the speed.

    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I have a vintage ornate singer sewing machine in a 7 drawer cabinet, in fairly good condition. This is a pedal machine. I was going to try to restore but found I know absolutely nothing about sewing machines. It has several attachments and box. Can send more pics if interested. Im asking 300 O.B.O very much worth the investment. If interested call Joe........

    The following is directed ONLY at the 84 scam artists who have contacted me about the machine. LEAVE ME ALONE ALREADY. I AM ON TO YOU. IT SEEMS THAT 500 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER THAT GETS YOU OUT OF YOUR HOLES . I WAS ALREADY MARRIED TO THE NUMBER ONE CON ARTIST WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI. I DONT NEED YOU TOO.

    This is a Pfaff 130 industrial sewing machine suitable for heavy canvas, leather, marine vinyl, and all sorts of other things that make wussy little sewing machines cry like children.

    Ever wanted to sew a shoe to tree? You can do it with this bad boy. Wanna sew a slab of concrete onto your car bumper? No problem. Loud neighbors giving you problems? Sew mattresses to your walls and you'll never hear them again.

    This machine is amazing!

    -I built an addition to my house using nothing more than eggs, flour, and a Pfaff 130.
    -When I had surgery, the doctor used a Pfaff 130 to stitch me up.
    -The Pfaff 130 tutored my developmentally disabled children and now they attend Harvard.
    -The Pfaff 130 is an excellent listener.
    -When I ran out of gas in the snow this winter, the Pfaff 130 drove out to me with a gas can.
    -The Pfaff 130 does the dishes and cleans the house when I work late.

    It has a treadle switch too.




    Ok I had to catch that one and post it here in case they take off CL. This just made me laugh a good one.

    Singer 66 with motor:

    I don't know a lot about this just that its heavy and has solid silver engraved plates on it and copper stamps. Its in like original condition. I'm not sure what its really worth but i would like to sell it to someone who knows about it or would appreciate it. I can get $25 just out of the silver and metal by scrapping it but its really pretty so i thought maybe someone would want it. The only thing i don't gave is the power cord but i do have the original owners manual

    1952 - This includes the original owner's manual. and the original spare parts box, with all attachments included. This is a rare find - I have included a pix of the cabinet that the sewing machine stows away in - with the old fashioned key that unlocks the storage compartment. This is a 1 owner machine and was rarely used. This machine has been in my family since before I was born. I would ask $700.00 for it if it was in working condition. My Grandmother told me it needs the foot pedal repaired. I have priced these on Ebay - and this is a reasonable price considering it has all of the original parts, original spare parts box, and the original owners manual included. Email me if you would like to come take a look see - the price is firm - I will take no less than my asking price - as it is well worth it, and this machine will probably continue working for another 60 years! It was very well taken care of!

    Seen CL add few days ago, a treadle machine, bit rough looking, and was "missing the string". Tried to find it again, couldn't.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!
