Wow. It was so bad they only used it 3 times and were too ashamed to get it out for a picture.

Hmmmm .. lots of "unusual" ads online today - it's not even a full moon till September8th!!

Yup!! It is definitely, in fact, the real thing - a sewing machine - and it's an old one! Not a false, unreal, or imaginary one. They have veritably made a true statement in their title.

The prices are at least ok. I can't tell for sure but the one on the left looks a lot like a Singer cabinet from the 20s.
People get so caught up in repurposing things that sometimes they don't realize the original use is the best use. That or the seller will say anything to get them sold. They should have added "Steampunk"
