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

    That picture looks like they videotaped the table, played it back on their television, paused the playback, then took a picture of the image displayed on their television. Is that a restaurant take-out menu stuck to the wall?

    With the background on this ad (double entendre), it is one of the funniest ones in a while.

    "The Cast iron base is very cool ~ Great piece of ART! OR use it as a base for a side table."

    Next time, don't take so many pictures of the machine.

    Glenn it does not take very long to look through the CL ads if you type in sewing in the search box. If you want to see the high priced stuff just go to the right where it says sort by and then hit high price - you will see all kinds of stuff. BTW there are some nice machines in your area.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Now here's an interesting old machine, I've never seen one of these before.

    This is new to me http://www.clchecker.com/ . It will email you each time your search criteria comes up on CL. Is anyone else using this? I just signed up the first of the week and find it useful..at least for now.

    I have an app on my android phone that notifies me whenever something that fits one of my different search criteria is listed.

    Drawers are in backwards, but I guess it does not make any difference now.

    As much difference as the working foot pedal.

    This one though, takes the cake - http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ518993081 "Still in box, used twice" - Which one is it? Apparently using it twice doubles its value considering that it's less than $150 on Amazon right now.

    I have a couple of those Kenmore clones. If you take in to account inflation that is about what they cost new. It's just that the customer isn't going to quite see it that way . BTW if you can get your hands on one get it. Those are nice machines. I'm keeping one for my DGD. It was given to me by the lady DGD is named after - the lady never used it

    This part cracked me up: "I have not lifted the machine up out of the storage for I want it kept in good operating condition."

    I didn't look at the other pics, just the first one. The second pic appears to be a Singer Sphinx mounted in the cabinet on the singer treadle irons. Confusing to say the least.

    I just noticed the first picture seems to have been lifted from the internet.
