    CONVIENENT SPIFFY AD MAKING KIT - no thinking necessary - or CL ads for dummies?

    Ok this is a spiffy AD making KIT - all you have to do is cut and paste to make your own Craig's List ad. Here are some UNEDITED bits and pieces of actual CL ads for you to select from. Feel absolutely free to add your own bits and pieces from actual CL ads so that we can have enough selection to go around - remember all the thinking, typos, grammar errors are already there. All you have to do is fill in a bad picture of the back of a machine and a price. Oh, and you can make it some outrageous price - nobody seems to care.

    I have an antique sewing machine, the brand is Modern. It works exceptionally well just don't have room for it anymore!!

    This belonged to and was used by my grandma. Many scratches on top of cabinet. Needs a good tune-up, not working right now. I can refer you to a place that does repairs on this type of machine. Or perhaps you just need parts???

    Drawers have extra accessories; needles, thread, and original attachments.

    Also has original instructions and price list for replacemant parts. Few scratches on top of desk, otherwise great condition.

    Necchi sewing machine with cabinet. This was my grandma's machine. The cabinet is the original and it has the knee pedal. Very nice. All attachments are included. It does need a little adjustment but otherwise works great.

    I have a FREE Singer sewing machine, missing the foot pedal, shd. be able to contact Singer to get one, they also have manuals to show how to use it.

    I have a beautiful antique 1910 singer sewing machine for sale that belong too my great grandmother it's a beautiful antique piece I'm asking 60.00
    I have a antique singer sewing machine for sale that belong to my great grandmother it's a beautiful antique piece I'm asking 75.00 if your interested call

    As you can see from the photos, this sewing machine is in very good condition and it displays beautifully.

    This Sewing Machine & Cabinet both have wear due to its vintage age.

    I never use it, and I just want someone to buy it that will use it.
    Cabinet is in good condition, top could be refinished.
    I don't respond to emails due to spam.

    plus accessories in good working condition

    Orginal wood, Metal is very old.

    Mounted to table that also works as a nightstand

    it works, needs to be lubed.

    needs a good home with someone who has a passion for sewing.

    Includes instruction book and parts

    All final arrangements must be done by phone only.


    This is the sort of cabinet (no machine) that was made somewhere in the vicinity of the very early 1900's by the White Sewing Machine Company. The White Sewing Machine Company had been around since about 1876.

    Included with the cabinet (no machine) is an accessory box and some attachments for a machine, and some original paperwork including an owner's manual. There are four drawers. There is one water ring stain on the top of the cabinet.

    1901 white treadle sewing machine, with original paperwork. solid wood. this is in near perfect condition with original finish. if your interested email me a phone number and i will send mine . there are to many scamers out there. You will not be disappointed in this machine. the only reason we are selling it is we are downsizing the collection we have to 1. priced to move this weekend.

    This is probably 40-50 years old. Comes in its own carrying case. This was the ONE and ONLY standard sewing machine of the 1940s 50s and 60s. They are workhorse and very durable. This has not been used in many years due to my mothers age health etc. I think everything still works???

    nice foot pedal sewing machine

    This piece is a beautiful, rare, old piece in really. really good shape. The accessories that are with this machine are GREAT!! The Manufacturer's booklet is in MINT condition!! It comes with a New Home Accessory Tin with purple lining & feet for every thing that is possible with this machine!! I can't say enough about the accessories!! Impressive cast iron hardware has gold detailing. The machine itself has a bobbin winder on the front. Who ever bought this has had it it's whole life & really took very nice care with it. I don't believe they used it much if at all!! The Oak cabinet has a knee door on hinges on the front, a lap drawer & 4 side drawers. All drawers have a lock on them & the "skeleton" key comes with it. This comes with accessories, cabinet, treadle machine, castiron legs & foot peddle. I have looked at what they are selling on other sights & the worth of this item would run around $350 or more. $280.

    unique iron pedestal

    very nice solid wood sewing machine cabinet out of the 40's or 50's. machine not in cabinet but cabinet is in excellent original condition. makes a nice table

    Fold open top, knee activated. Simple mechanics, all metal.

    This is a 1948 Singer sewing machine that has all the original parts, original manual, original spare parts, and original motor lube in lead tube. This also coming with the original desk and seat. Beautiful piece works, and in need of a good home.

    folds down into cabinet that opens with a table attached to the side, very heavy metal built machine in solid wood cabinet. bobin fed thread.

    I have an Antique Singer Sewin Machine that i'm looking to get rid of please email or text me
    "note" all reasonable offers will be considered serious buyers only no time for games... HUGH?
    its constucted of metal and wooden cabinet on legs with a fold open table
    sewing Machines(buy2 get an Free sewing machine table)
    age is some where from the 60 to 70 not sure maybe 50 works great with case

    From left to right on front of the machine you have a stitch width lever with five settings ranging from straight to wide zig zag pattern. Next is a needle position lever with left,center and right. Next is the bobbinwider. There is a large knob for setting the stitch lenth. It has a push button reverseand it does reverse cloth. There is an off knob for the light and the machine itself. It has a 1.0 amp motor. It also uses a drop in bobbin. This sewing machine comes with a hard plastic carrying case.

    Needs to go...asap...need the space

    classy looking table model everything works including light. black & gold lettering very cool machine - kinda of a rare model $ 150 OBO

    The only reason it is being sold is because of break-up. I will miss the cabinet, but the machine was useful also.

    Runs good, but a drop of oil might help it run a little smoother

    1920-1930 Singer Sewing Machine. last used in 1998. I dont know how to run it.

    Great piece of history.

    The cabinet is in overall good shape for its age (the top is a bit weathered and there are several scratches on the sides of the cabinet). The sewing machine itself needs a bit of attention (knobs, belt and power cord) but once again is in overall good shape for its age.

    Has original owner's manual and all attachments. - I didn't know owner's manuals had attachments.

    This machine is in a Wood Cabinet, has foot pedle all attchments it runs and works.

    I have an old standard sewing machine that has been in my family for a long time. When researching it it said that it was from before singer bought the standard sewing machine company. I don't know what does and doesn't work. It may need some work. I'm not a sewer so I do not know.


    EXCELLENT CONDITION AND RUNS BEAUTIFLLY. THIS MERCURY COMMERCIAL MACHINE IS FROM MY GREAT AUNTS ESTATE. IT COMES WITH ALL ATTACHMENTS, ORIGNAL BOXES OF SPOOLS, ALL ORIGINAL PAPER BOOKLETS, ETC. The machine tucks nicely into the custom case that is also in perfect condition. I have used this machine and it works and performs perfectly. The belt will need to be replaced and they are easily purchased and inexpensive. Looks like a Japanese 15 clone to me $200???

    I have taken it out and oiled it over the years to maintain it. I have not physically sewn on it in 10 years. So the motor does run. How well? Well, it should probably be timed if you ever wanted to use it to sew with, I would imagine. But it should stitch.

    I HAVE A TRUNDLE SEWING MACHINE IN A OAK CABINET THAT WORKS GREAT . EMAIL ME FOR PICS OR IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS


    This is for a 1939 Singer Sewing machine. It is in pretty good condition for how old it is. It is a travel sewing machine so it comes in a box with a key. Very heavy and large though. Everything still works. It has been tested. The only thing missing is the bobbing cover i believe.


    The Model 66 was introduced in 1900 with production continuing to the 1950's. The machine was made as a hand crank, treadle and electric machine. Various decal patterns were used on these machines and although the Singer company did not name the decal patterns over the years collectors have given them various descriptive names. In America the Model 66 had a decal pattern known by collectors as Red Eye which was introduced c1910.
    Serial # G9097860 was manufactured on Dec 6, 1921 in Elizabeth, NJ model #66 was used for heavy duty sewing (canvas repair, reupholstering, etc) in factories during the World War.
    NEEDS BELT - EXCELLENT CONDITION!!!!!!! One scratch on front of cabinet see picture and singer wording on the back is faded a touch, see picture. Original manual included as well. Cabinet also features 4 drawers. Dusty, has been in storage!!! Had storage people take picture....if you need addtional pictures, please let me know! $475.00

    Featherweight-type Singer sewing machine. Only differance in portable Featherweight is this one is in a cabinet and Featherweights were portable. HAS ORIGINAL BOOKS and ORIGINAL attachments including buttonhole and more!!!! Was owned by one elderly lady who bought it in the 1940's or early 1950's new and sewed all her family's clothes on it. Still in great working condition. Possibly needs a new cord because still has origina cord on it. I bought it as a back up sewing machine from that little lady about five years ago shortly before her death but I have five sewing machines and now need the money!!!

    Looks like a Singer 99 in the picture...

    vintage sewing machine in real good shape all its missing is the belt to run the gears why you are pushing the pedal! drawers are in really good shape as well! call perry

    antique treddle sewing machine is complete less belt and in good condition. L Davis is the brand with oak top and drawers

    I HAVE AN ANTIQUE TREADEL DAVIS SEWING MACHING IN WOOD CABINET AND IN GREAT WORKING CONDITION AND ALL THE WOOD IS IN GREAT SHAPE. WILL TAKE $125.00 OBO OFFER.

    I have an old sewing machine. As far as i know everything is still attached. It has all the drawers. The top of the wood is a little rough but dont hurt it any.Everything is functionable. feel free to email me with any questions

    I'm selling a 1920's vintage Singer Sewing Machine for $150 OBO. It does need some TLC, but looks great to be so old! ;o)
    In cleaning out my dad's garage, we found this sewing machine, and didn't just want to throw it away.
    It is NOT the kind that is attached to a table. It has a wooden cover as well.
    It looks like it has a 1950's (ish) converter to make it electric powered with a little light.
    It also has a booklet and an oil can with it.
    Email me with questions! Like I said, it's not something we know anything about, but in the limited research I did online, others are being sold for well over $200.
    I will be able to meet at the Lowe's parking lot just inside Bella Vista.
    Thanks for looking!

    Something is wrong with it but I don't know what and I don't know how to sew. I've had it working fine before but I don't know anything about them. (it probably works now I just haven't tried it in ages)



    1952 singer sewing machine good condition needs a belt and light bulb...has origanal extra pieces.. it is eletric wood cabinet with 4 locking drawers. Trade hunting fishing stuff canves army tent

    Grandma purchased this about 1895. The veneer top needs glue and the finish is rough but otherwise it seems to be in operable condition.
    (I wonder what that looks like - no picture - this person must be really old, I'm 60 and my grandma was BORN in 1901)
