    He is surely "optimistic" on his pricing. And he's been advertising the same machines for months. But I guess you can't blame a guy for trying.

    I think it's smart, too. But there is a regular light bulb in there, and I agree it might get hot. You could replace it with a low wattage compact fluorescent and it would be very bright.

    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-ViewAd?AdId=538665023 - "Singer Featherweight miniature sewing machine with manual, all accessories and case. Immaculate condition. Last chance before I give it to a museum." I'd love to get the serial number off this one, so I can compare it to the one that's going to show up at some thrift shop in the next week or two.

    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-ViewAd?AdId=538532973 - "Selling my PS3 Slim 320GB - Make me an offer!
    Don't use my PS3 anymore, great shape, includes all the hookups, and a red dual shock controller. Looking at reasonable offers. Might consider trades, but I am a young guy so I don't have any use for a sewing machine or a kitchenaid mixer. "

    Sorry Steve and anyone else I confused. I should have just replied to this here, but I PM'd Sheluma. I was trying to cut down on the "chit chat" but this is what I wrote to Sheluma.

    You didn't miss anything on my site. I sell on Craig's List. The warranty applies to machines I restore for people and if I sell a machine that I have restored.

    I like the chitchat. You do have a link on your home page "shop now" that doesn't go anywhere.

    I especially like the part where he/she says any antique lover will know it is priced to sell. To whom, a Rockefeller?

    yeah, i need to remember when searching CL, to include "treadle" and "sowing". Probably miss some good deals. I did pick up a FW that didn't move for months 'cause it was listed as "sowing" machine.

    The first thing that comes up for me as a "sowing" machine is Miriam's beater machine.

    eBay have already taken care of that: When you search for "Sewing Machine", it gives you all instances of "Sowing machine" too! It's kind of allowing people to stay stupid though.

    I got another reply for my sowing machine - the one that looks like art? UM well this one again:
    http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/art/4154415145.html

    Oh and here is the latest reply - I know it is spam because I got 5 others like it from different people for different machines...
    "This is the type of machine I learned to sew on! How much are you asking, please, and... where are you located? Thank you"
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
