    For giggles, continued, I saw it on...

    eBaym, of course. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SINGER-SEWIN...item2a356356f5

    but at least they're not charging extra for shipping!!

    This seller has a 100% positive feedbacks with over 300 ratings. I can't for the life of my figure why he thinks this is worth that kind of money. Is it full of drugs? Seriously.....this is beyond bizarre! None of his other listings are out of the norm. This has to be a joke or maybe a means to draw potential buyers for his other items?

    Nice looking 99K. However...
    i like the cabinet finish. Don't see many in that shape. Surely a refinish job.

    I think it comes with the car in the picture. Or probably he's selling the shed too. Even if it includes the car and shed it's still overpriced ( ha ha ha) now that ad is so totally funny. 250$ maybe or too many zeros.

    I think someone must have misplaced that decimal point or at least I hope so. And when I checked there were 25 people watching that auction. Maybe just for entertainment?

    I think it is Miriam in disguise again, having a good giggle. Miriam? ;-)

    Oh you think I ruined my sledge hammer on the crush and sew? It's still good. I only need to sell a few of those $25,000 machines and I can retire preferably some where warm.

    I sent this guy an email asking him where he got his figure for his machine. Said it isn't worth much for than 30.00, don't think he will answer anyway. I checked out his store and can't see anything fantastic in it.

    LOL, my first thought was that the seller must have a buyer already and that buyer will expect the "real" item to be packed in with the machine. I would love to know why the seller came up with that price.

    Good luck on both counts! It will be in the 20's here next week! Maybe Key West would work?

    If It is going to be taken apart and the legs are going to be removed before shipping, will they be included with the machine?

    They had some kind of ad for free snow. They said it was on the curb and they said not to come to the door because you probably wouldn't be able to find the door. It was pretty funny. Right now it is very pretty out... nearly white out with big fluffy stuff coming straight down.....

    So this means my vintage machines are my new retirement plan and I can trade one for a tropical island.
