    I never get replies either. Apparently the drug haze take a lot of time to wear off.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    "This vintage piece is in perfect condition....a beautiful example of true Retro Design. Everything tucks away and is hidden with precision craftsmanship. The chair and the sewing machine itself are completed hidden inside the unit. The top opens up and expands for plenty of sewing room. The sewing machine is in working order and sews perfectly. THIS IS A MUST SEE item to be sure!

    36x19x30 side panels on top open up to 60" for sewing surface.

    Cash and Carry Only Please"

    I'm thinking the machine hidden... I wonder if you have to pay to look?

    I hate it when people butcher up sewing machines. They take a machine that at least would be useful for parts but probably works fine. Around here I see these awful things where they take the bed off the machine and stick wheels on them to look like tractors. Butchering up the cabinets is just as bad there are always orphaned machines that are in search of cabinets or need cabinets replaced. They need those!

    Miriam, that does look like a nice machine in there that "Pops-Up".

    Ok, I have to share one here from Chicagoland, or in this case, Fantasyland! This "Very good condition for it's age" machine looks like it was dragged behind the truck that also ran it over. " And they say in the ad, "I have researched this kind of machine...they are actually going for well over $200" ... Where?
    Enjoy.

    Speaking of dragging a machine behind a truck .....

    I turned on the TV last night and an episode of Sienfeld was playing. It was the one where Newman's mail truck dragged an old Singer across the road. Oh the humanity.

    You mean other than it hanging half off the hinge, and no door support for the top leaf?

    And it is a Sears Kenmore not a Singer! The exact model that I learned to sew on by the way!

    i have one in a very similar table and it doesn't have a support for the leaf either. Doesn't look like it ever had one either . . .

    That would be interesting. I'll bet threading it would take a lot of time. LOL

    You could also ask them to send you a picture of the Free Singer Sewing Machine that goes with this Kenmore and cabinet.

    A few weeks ago I was looking through the CL ads and came across someone selling a "Singer Sewing Machine Cabinet" with no machine. I noticed that it was a Kenmore cabinet with the square corner openings for the machine just like this one. It turned out to be WAY to far for me to go and it wasn't what I was looking for. I did let the seller know that I believed that it was a Kenmore cabinet and not a Singer cabinet. She wrote back and was quite nasty about my intrusion and gave me a piece of her mind to boot. I replied with an apology. She again replied back but this time she said that she checked again and it was a Sears/Kenmore cabinet. She said that she saw the "S" and assumed that it said that was a Singer cabinet. I can only imagine how mad I would have been if I drove an hour each way for it and it was not what she had advertised it to be.

    You just have to wonder sometimes where people park their brains. Did she apologize? probably not. It seems they are all out to get rich from old stuff and some of the stuff should never be saved. Now singers in my opinion are the best made, but then there are the Pfaffs and Berninas. Don't own one but would like to just to compare. I have a Juki and a few other odd ones.

    Yes Steve we have seen worse. I had the privledge Of stripping one for a customer several years ago and what a chore to remove that old latex paint then you have to scrub it out of the oak grain. It can be done but I recomend you listen to your gut and run far way from this one

    While I prefer the wood tones, I could live with the paint job if it wasn't such a garish color. It hurts the eyes looking at it. Bet it glows in the dark!
