    I was looking through my local Craig's list and found this "gem". It looks like it was in a flood, its rusty and the cabinet is a mess, it can all be yours for $100. hahahaha

    This one is so wonderful that the seller wants prospective buyers to call with a price, but I assume for nothing less than $799.00, or its an insult.

    I'm not sure what's going on with this one, it looks like duct tape?

    Oh my - more sellers selling without a clue!


    That second one - the Red eye - it is so hard to try to explain to them why what they have is NOT the same as what is selling for more money - not that the overpriced 128 is "selling" just being offered for sale. I'd be surprised if they seller gets $300 for it - but we'll never know as ebay won't show what the sale price was if an offer is accepted.

    Funny, when I did a search on Sold items, I found two Redeyes in similar cabinets, both nicer and older than the one compared to the 128. Unfortunately for the seller, they sold both sold for under $300. Comparing them - I'd say his is about half as nice, so more in the $150 range.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    This one is according to the seller who's been smokin' the really good stuff, is in mint condition. It comes complete with bobbers for a mere $400!!

    I have no idea what this one could be, but it requires a foot paddle to work.

    Another flood victim, poor thing and it looks like its in the cabinet backwards.

    I couldn't quite believe this one - a Singer 99K in good condition, a nice machine but not $850 nice.

    Sure looks like one of the W&W attachment boxes. I think that it is just the drawers that are in backwards.

    I had to at least send them a note letting them know that it was to conserve chromium, NOT to avoid shiny bits.

    That one is almost tempting. Missing one (maybe two) drawer pulls and possibly the center apron but it's a nice fancy cabinet and a decent price.

    I would think that the "shine" would be more of a problem during the night, too much competition during the day, and that the light required t sew by would be worse in that case.

    Depends on where you are.... Right now, in our area, there's not a lot of sweating going on outside unless you're shoveling snow.

    I have seen chestnuts in drawers before, too. I guess if you get mad you can sew it to something or throw it anyway.....
