    "royal seeing and csbnit - $20 (kck)"

    "Vintage sewing machine and cannot 20.00 this is a nice sewing machine and cannot not sure if it still works but I know the cannot is worth 20.00 by its self. Em mails me and I'll give you deatails"

    I think that is written in Old English. Or maybe written after drinking some Old English 800.

    Either way, not a bad price.

    It appears to be a Necchi clone. Pictures too blurred to assess, however.

    Agreed!! I'd be tempted if it were close to me.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I don't know, sorry. I was just cruising CL because I can afford the shipping for the west coast states if I see something I have to have.

    This one isn't so crazy, but it is a little odd. It's an entertainment center turned into a sewing table.

    Oh, Mike. That was a -very- good one. Very good. So good it's bad, and so bad it's good.

    Just when I thought I'd seen every possible spelling of treadle, someone comes up with a new stitch...I don't have a machine that does this particular stitch...I might just have to get it!

    I think I'd need to see the stitch before I jumped on it. There are so many on sewing machines that I never use.

    I'd take a music playing sewing machine! As long as it wasn't like at the fair where it just plays over and over again...
