    I do not know which is worse, the price or the write-up... with wondrous stuff like....

    "This... Beautiful... Piece... Is.. A... One...Time... Only... Item... And... Once... Sold... Will... Not... Subsequently... Be... Available... Unless... Returned...To... Us..."
    Simply the most outrageous, funniest listing I have ever seen!! Thanks for posting Steve

    Perhaps we need a rating system for these ads.
    I know someone is going to come up with something better...

    Dumb (1)
    Stupid (2)
    Unique (3)
    Outer space (4)
    I don't know but we do need a system of course...
    Anyway... that... one... is... a... 10... whatever... it... is...

    I started to read that ad but had to stop. It was going to give me a seizure.
    I like your grading system Miriam. Who rates it? The person that posts the ad here or the people that see it here?

    Perhaps "9" should be "They are smoking the really good stuff and not sharing it either."
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    We should get a system going and then we should rate the ad... there needs to be a number for 'lame'

    Give "lame" the negative numbers: -1 for trending lame, -2 for definitely lame, -3 for lame + stupid

    LOLz!

    Nice puddle. That cabinet would probably fold up like a wet taco of you tried to move it.

    The cabinet's probably done for but you could save the machine and treadle and possibly the drawers. $20 is pretty good value. It even seems to have its slide plate.
    Someone could take advantage of bad parenting and save this poor thing.

    Looks a bit too far gone even to me, except for the irons to be honest. MAYBE the drawers.

    You'd probably have to go through a 55-gallon drum of Tri-Flow oil to bring that machine back from the dead.

    LOLOL.. I'd be all over that , The bulk of the machines I buy, don't look that good, two weeks it would look like new,

    understand when a cabinet/machine looks like that it's untouched, meaning a very easy repair job. Your not cleaning off 80 yrs worth of someone else's band aid refinshing

    "I have a really great travel case for a typical home sewing machine. It also comes with a free broken sewing machine!

    Maybe your sewing machine needs a part or two, use this machine as a donor.

    Want to try your hand at home sewing machine repair? Why not learn the ins-and-outs on this broken machine?

    Sick of over priced tattoo shops? Build your own kitchen-chic tattoo gun! (ink not included).

    The motor still works and is functional, you just can't attach one piece of fabric to another via thread with this machine in it's current condition. The spool holder is snapped off, and the machine was further "messed up" when I tried to take it apart myself. Should be repairable by a professional, or someone who knows what the eff they are doing.

    Comes free with the case! $15! Or I will trade for a male guinea pig (mine needs a friend!) Can deliver in Edmonton or Sherwood Park."


    hhhmmmm creative writer for sure and I laughed, too... I want to see a picture.

    I had to reply to that one....

    "Lovely machine, but you may want to consider rewording the ad. A "featherweight" is one of two specific models of Singer sewing machines (221 and 222)
    The 15-91 is CERTAINLY not a featherweight.
    Laws regarding false advertising can be rough."
