    I agree with you, they have to be smoking something to want that much for those!

    Now this one has a decent price, but the shot of the original parts in the drawers gave me the giggle.

    This one has been popping up for several months now, and they've never lowered the price on any of it. Stupid spray paint.

    I see what you mean. Those cams aren't going to help anyone using a 66.

    Just saw this one, and I want pics. My grandmothers were both born in the '20s, so it is possible...but how do I know which grandmother's grandmother it belonged too??!!

    Here's some treasures for your enjoyment. Chicago Craig's list.

    Great gift idea!!
    http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/atq/2787914616.html

    I think this one takes the cake especially since it's being sold by an ANTIQUE DEALER!! Sorry ... "so called antique dealer".
    http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/atq/2783301308.html

    Oh PLEASE! Needs belt, dusty, "storage" people took pic. No word about if it works but listed in "Excellent Condition". Seriously??

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I think some people don't know the difference and think we are stupid enough to pay the price. They might find some one who is not in the know to buy one. I hope most people are smarter that that. I got a big laugh out of the prices, way too high. I look on ebay a lot and CL, finds some god and some bad, lol
    Life is SEW great!!!!!!

    Having been an antique dealer in the past....some of those are pre- 911 shop prices. I have sold treadles for $3-500, but now things are so different....So is the new pre-war and post-war era? We used to use those terms when referring to WWI or WWII.

    Ok....if I had the money to burn, I'd probably buy the cabinet. The machine? Heh! Not so much!

    Southern California has always commanded higher prices for antiques than most of the rest of the US. I've known folks that would travel and buy and head to San Diego or LA to resell it. Back in the early 80's, my brother and his family paid for an entire 2 week vacation by doing just that...bought a bunch of antiques in Colorado, then went home and sold them for more than what the trip and the antiques cost...put a nice chunk of change in the bank.

    Kind of makes me think of the ant and the rubber tree - He had high hopes! I think all of these sellers do too. LOL.

    If this machine is very old, then I am ancient! Hah!!!
    This killed me - the tag line on this emphasizes that it has a "round bobbin" - as opposed to the standard triangular ones that we all use, I presume?

    Great thread - here's some from my area:

    http://ottawa.en.craigslist.ca/atq/2746887546.html $500 Pheonix (?)

    http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-se...AdIdZ340977938 $525 for a 1950's machine (not in good shape).

    http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-se...AdIdZ337698331 $500 treddle.

    http://www.usedottawa.com/classified...ation_14225214 I certainly hope the machine in the picture is not the one that is used for the alterations...unless the alterations are done by a 7-year-old?
