http://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=601333602 - Wanted ad - "I want a sewing machine on rent for a day or two."

Uh,.. not one of mine... no. I like that mine work, and I doubt it will when you're done with it after that day or two...

Shill bidding? $465 for what's clearly a $5 sewing machine.

I like it, but I wouldn't be drinking Champagne and eating caviar off of it.

It's all fun and games until the leaf folds up under the weight of whatever they put on it.

Did you look at the bid history? Looks like it was sniped at the end after the price had sat a while. Lucky seller. Crazy money for what looks like a pretty average machine to me.

Those morons must have thought the machine was made out of "Sterling" silver or something.
