    Remember that pink atlas with the crappy photos from last week? It went down and moved to craigslist. Still too much though. Http://provo.craigslist.org/atq/4013595577.html

    Should be holding his head. A Kenmore you can see for $70 and a Singer for $100 but no photo, almost qualifies as bait and switch. If the Ken. is cheaper, just think how "lucky" you would be to rush right over (within the time limits) and buy that great old machine for only $30 more. I bet it is junk or we would see a photo.

    It amazes me that anyone could think that an nice pink Atlas could be worth $600...just floors me...as someone said to my BF regarding selling used cars "you just have to find the right ass for the seat"

    Judy, hilarious! Combine your two ads, and you have a machine flying/hovering off a six storey building, then sewing curtains. ;-)

    Looks like some form of industrial Singer, so the price might be pretty good.

    I suspect that a lot of people just have them for decoration, and others may have inherited them, but have no use for them. I'd rather see them get passed on to someone who would use it, than just sit around and collect dust, or worse.

    Unfortunately for that seller, he is going to be taking that one with him.

    I believe that to most folks these are just decorations, like an old fake Christmas tree, sentimental but not actually valued.

    Same reason most folks sell them with pics of the cabinet and irons only, because to them that IS all there really is to it.

    sad.. But good for us when they are not delusional about it's value...

    I've seen the same ads for dogs and cats. When we sold my first house (I bought it BDH - before DH. ), I sold a ton of stuff because we were moving to who knows where. The house was sold, but we didn't find anything we wanted to buy, so we going to rent and had to store everything until we found something to rent. It was a mess. We didn't find a rental until 3 days after we gave up possession of the house. In that case, I sold everything I hated in the house that I didn't want to take with us. This was before I sewed, but Betty (the 1912 27) came with me. She at in storage for a week before I could get to her, but she came with us. I did sell a lot of vintage stuff though that I didn't like anymore, but I sold it for cheap, because that's what it was worth to me to get rid of it instead of moving it. This person seems to want their first month or two of mortgage or rent covered for the machine. Good luck with that!

    Well maybe she is moving in with a fellow with 6 kids and a few dogs so she can only take the clothes on her back never mind that she won't be able to sew new ones... poor thing...

    ok, SO I want to know what a "cherry sewing machine" looks like. Is it made out of cherry wood, or does it actually sew cherries....
