    What are you smoking?!
    And once again, someone thinks the back of the machine is more attractive than the front!!

    And my picks for the day:

    http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/clt/2832061426.html

    Not very good pictures, machine looks very nice (thinking FW) - but really - $750 firm???

    and

    http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/atq/2838941717.html

    Machine looks decent, cabinet can be refinished, does come with a stool too - but $500 - serious offers only!!! I am thinking - seriously - you think you are going to get $500???

    Yes, that is a White. The person who is selling it does not even know what he/she is selling.

    Most of the time, they DON'T know what they are selling! That is evident as to the price they are asking for the item!!

    These sellers have not only smoked something but also inhaled it.

    Yeppers, very pricey. There are some reasonably priced ones though on this craigslist. As I said, not only were these sellers smoking, they were also inhaling.

    This looks suspiciously like my 401A that I just paid $75 for including a nice cabinet. I didn't know it was THAT old!! LOL

    Deluxe??? That is a 404 and it is straight stitch only. Knock $100 off and it isn't a bad deal.... 1928??? I bet his grandma brought it over on the Mayflower too.

    Oh dear... I sent the seller an email giving him information about his 99-13, but goodness, $400 is a little much.
