    The flying/hovering desk cracked me up. And Ceci, you're so right about how that machine can fall off a 6 story building and then sew curtains. It didn't actually fall -- it had a flying desk. I must read more ads. I usually just look at the picture and hit the back button.

    Ohhhh, so *that's* what a sowing machine is! I think it's supposed to read "flowing machine".

    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....
    That could be a bargain.

    Steve; you mean you don't have a machine or two that can sew cherries?
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I hate it when sellers put a low price in the title line then have an unrealistic one that they are really wanting. I don't understand why they don't just put $500 in the title .

    That way, people view the ad before falling on the floor while laughing hysterically at the uninformed seller.

    I wish you could hold them to the price. Especially the $1 in the title and make an offer.
    It works that way in the store, if it has 2 prices you get the lower of the two...

    Unfortunately for the seller, the $5 price is closer to the actual value than the $500 price is.

    Auntpiggylpn - that turquoise 327k is the very first machine I owned. Got it as a HS graduation gift. Even friends in the dorm didn't mess it up! Of course when I inadvertently shoved it against the wall with the buttonhole attachment still on it, oops!!! Think I bent something vital. Never was quite right after that. Or was it all those USAF moves every other year? Anyway it was a good machine.

    Steve, I giggled all day about sewing cherries, and then I saw an ad with this text. The opposite of people selling a sowing machine, I guess. So that cherry-sewing machine might have a grass-sewing attachment? ;-)

    Well drill out a bigger hole in the throat plate and put in a bigger needle and you could pit the cherries...

    I've been looking at this sad picture for a long time. A holiday decorative piece??? Maybe I should make an offer.

    IT IS WAY OVER PRICED IT THAT GARBAGE IS GLUED ON - I would email them and tell them I pay $5 for parts machines.

    Glued on??? Geez how sad lol. I agree with you Miriam. Nobody will buy it and I will have to look at that ridiculously huge cone of red thread on top of that machine forever.

    If it is glued on it might scrape off. You never know it might even function after some TLC - I've seen worse looking machines. I would want to see if it has any parts missing.

    It is most likely glued with hot glue gun that will come off easy. If glued down at all. I don't agree with people who do this but the machine is most likely ok. If you saw this machine without the decoration you would say it is a good deal. I don't have time looking for the the silly overpriced ads when I could be spending the time working on my machines, sewing and making things. Too much time spent on this trivia

    Oh my goodness.... it's baaaaackkkk.....! You might think that since they've had this table listed for MONTHS, somebody would have thought to take a decent photo by now!

    At least now it's "make an offer". I think they started out at $100 and dropped to $50.
