    Someone need to give this Parlor Singer a good home...

    It is too modern for it to be in part of my collection, but this thing is just amazing!
    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/atq/3729736003.html

    I have conversed with the owner, and he really "knows nada" (his words) about sewing machines.

    He asked if "I" thought the price was fair.
    I explained the mercurial nature of the sewing machine collecting universe...

    I just wanted to post this because this cabinet and machine are in SUCH good condition, I felt someone here needs to become the new caretaker.

    I know that feeling. The seller seems like a real decent sort. If you mention that "Steve" referred you you could probably talk him into a lower price or a delayed pickup. He says that it is currently in a storage facility...

    Both are in terrific condition. Someone took very good care of them.

    I once had that cabinet and I still have the near perfect condition Red Eye 66 back clamp machine that came in it. When we moved from MN to NV I hate to say that I dumped the cabinet; all of it is gone except I saved the top left drawer with the attachments in there. It had been stored in a WI cabin and the bottom wood trim had fallen off. The back "doors" that open for ventilation were hanging on their hinges due to issues from moisture to the wood. Visible mildew was on much of the wood and the drawers came with mice chews and their nests. Hmmm......something has to go because it all can't fit in the truck .... I managed to bring 6 treadle cabinets and their machines to NV. I now regret I didn't find room for this cabinet - it would have been a huge restoration effort though.
