    I nominate the phrase "bus trip worthy" to be a part of our lingo here! I love how jljack used it in post 546.

    Sweet mother of gawd, what IS she smoking? I seriously want to know--it's been a rough week, and I'd love to know how she pulled $250 as a fair price for those heavily damaged machines and tables.

    It is really aggravating when the clueless people that are selling these machines think they know more about the value of them than the people who use them and really DO know the value.. . . .

    Oh no, a bird feeder. I wish I did live closer so I can save this coffin top. Too far for me to drive.

    Actually this might be a good price. Includes the sewing table.

    I dunno Jacquie... this one comes pretty close!

    http://boise.craigslist.org/hsh/2884355240.html

    This one has been listed over and over for MONTHS! It started at $1200...it's come down...
    http://boise.craigslist.org/hsh/2903644318.html

    Try not to jump on this one too fast...
    http://boise.craigslist.org/atq/2917853582.html

    And! You can own a "trendle" sewing machine! One of a kind for sure...has to be, because I've never heard of a "trendle" before!

    Ok, ok! My turn! When I saw the pics, I said, "That's not a sewing machine"! http://tricities.craigslist.org/atq/2881943560.html
    It might have been once upon a time but it's not anymore!

    These are not as good as the first one, but worth a looksie: http://tricities.craigslist.org/atq/2821637643.html & http://tricities.craigslist.org/atq/2821642355.html

    And for $1, you can't beat this: http://tricities.craigslist.org/atq/2878622864.html
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    Not a machine, but I'm sure you'll giggle anyway: http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/hsh/2910368349.html What a deal! I feel like a pro for paying $.05 for the last one I got.. but it wasn't vintage. Maybe I'll hang on to it so I can sell it on CL some day!

    Good lord and butter! The local Habitat sells patterns for a nickel apiece, or 25 for $1.00. I guess I've got a fortune stashed away, in the form of old patterns!

    Oh My! I could be rich! ROTFL I have vintage patterns dating back to 1920's, still in the mail order envelopes with the 2 cent stamps! Sure the stamps are worth more than the patterns!

    Love this one. http://sacramento.craigslist.org/art/2922537402.html I have no idea why they think "it should sell for $300" would make me buy it. The nasty tone of the posting makes me want it even more. Not.

    I picked up mine from a garage sale for $10.

    Actually, there are on-line shops that sell vintage patterns. We went looking for a wedding gown pattern, and were floored at the prices. I ended up drawing out what my DD wanted, and creating a pattern to copy one of the vintage ones.

    Yes - mine was $25. He has thread and needles, but does have any of the special cams or the manual?

    Too bad there are not some better closeup pics. I am going to hazard a guess and say that it is an industrial sewing machine mounted on an industrial table and stand. Likely gold plated. Bad pics so as not to attract home invasion robbers coming after the sewing machine. LOL.
