I hope this machine doesn't suffer the same fate (too lazy to sell it)
    She could be a hoarder. By now the machine might not even be visible, let alone accessible.

    After I posted I remembered you're trying to get rid of machines, not adopt more!

    More crimes against sewing machines. This one looks like a 99 clone. Maybe whatever they did is reversible.

    I can't see that anything was done to it, unless that gooseneck is somehow attached. I wonder if they are just using the light on it as a lamp?

    It was National CAPS LOCK Day today. Maybe they were posting in honor of that?

    Exactly. Worst yet, I had to sneak a 411G into the house last week. I'm not going to get away with that again

    No, I imagine your new kangaroo won't be at all happy with it, Tammi. They prefer a featherweight

    WHEW - last night I bought out the leftovers of a parts stash from an OSMG found in a back closet of a store that closed a few weeks ago!!! He must have quit in 1975! The ad was horribly written. The ad was for some sewing machine parts and make offer - I did - she took it... It was a 4 hour round trip. It was worth it.... I'm overwhelmed. I feel so blessed... Now I have parts to fix the touch and sew......... maybe some glue......
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Oh the salesmanship! Even if it's true, I'm sure they only need the money to get those cataracts removed http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/sunny...ble/1029675829

    Let's start with the assertion that they're the only resale shop in the country.

    Of course she won't be happy with it! I'd rather a FW hanging in my pouch vs a full sized machine, aluminum or not!! I may see if I can liquidate before she arrives. What she doesn't know won't hurt her.


    Sometimes I'm such a bag. I actually emailed this one:
    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ536059741 - "I am selling my Bernina Industrial Sewing Machine . It is about 30 yrs old but still working strong. It is a zig zag 217. Worth over $2000 asking at least that much"

    "just a hint. When pricing a sewing machine, it's useful to search ebay using the option to see completed auctions.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bernina-217-...item4d102d3e5d - $599

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BERNINA-MODE...item4d118e083b - $599

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chandler-217...item5d44f6d906 - under $200

    I think that "at least" $2000 might be a hard sell. "

    My son pointed out on the hand carved wooden pants one "they should have gone for Levi's instead of Old Navy with that".

    "Singer sewing machine. Vintage. I just sanded and repainted the iron legs. I have vin number for people looking who are serious. Asking $200 or best offer."

    I wonder if they have a clear title?

    The purchase price is one thing but then there's tax, license and insurance!

    "Don't know much about it but it is almost complete. The power cord is missing. It does have the manuel and tons of extras. I need it gone today. I don't have room for it. It has been in storage and needs cleaning, but still in great shape. Asking 150 obo. Please call or text 6825566033."

    That has to be one of the fugliest cabinets I've ever seen.
    Well of course Manuel is with it: It is near Mexico after all

    I just bought that buttonholer and it's superb. I actually really like the cabinet: It's art deco and a little different to the usual ones. The machine is a 15, so this combination is actually pretty good. I might offer him $100, or even give him the full price: The buttonholder has to be worth $35.
