    "OWNERS MANUEL INCLUDED."

    I figure he must be where the other $760 comes in.

    Ok, you can pay this guy $100 for a $20 machine and then pay a carpenter to construct drawers that are missing from the treadle table. This guy had better watch out, he is going to be overwhelmed by all the responses he gets!

    Thanks for the picture with the flash, so I can see just how filthy it really is.
    Is that filth or just decay??

    I think my lower back sent a formal complaint just thinking about the angle I'd have to operate a machine at to make that work.

    All giggles aside, that's a pretty good deal even if it didn't work. You could probably get them down to $20 or $30.

    Dog gone it... We never did get out much... About 20 years ago some friends of ours gave us a week end in Nashville, TN as a gift. WHA WHOOO!!! DH and I left the kids behind.... Well. They told us to go visit Opryland Hotel. We did. First off that old beat up truck we drove was the oldest most beat up truck in the whole parking lot. We got in the place - wow - overwhelming... That place is huge. We wandered from garden to garden until we got ourselves good and lost. Had to ask directions 3 times to find where we got in the place. I love all the fountains. WOW. We did see a little store. In the store was suit cases - antique ones - just like what we packed our stuff in... so there. Don't re-purpose it USE it like God meant it to be used...

    Is it a table for suitcases, or an table made out of a suitcase? Either is dumb, but what's with the typewriter on the treadle?
