    Miriam, you really know how to pick them. Thanks for the chuckles! When you search, do you ever look for "sowing", "tredle", "peddel" and other variations? I'm always surprised what I find.

    I wouldn't have paid $250 for it, unrestored with the sewing machine in it. Not sure why they think someone will pay that price now that they have jacked it up!

    Hope springs eternal. They're lucky if they get ten bucks for it.

    Actually I could use some of those levitating sewing machines. I have filled the garage, and the house, even my DD's house. I never considered the ceiling and rafters.

    Guess what I have been up to? yup, you guessed it!! Craigslist again!

    a professional 188U. it is pretty in an odd way! Is that price as expensive as it seems?
    http://charlotte.craigslist.org/for/3371388530.html

    and here is a japan made one, precision? $75
    http://charlotte.craigslist.org/atq/3370613656.html

    this one intrigues me -- clearly a vintage kenmore! no cabinet but a case for $50.
    http://charlotte.craigslist.org/for/3362512692.html




    and last, for smoky giggles.

    Probably region dependent. Around here I'd say it was a little high - GW tends to have them from $10 to $40 - but not ridiculously so. OTOH the Whites have a very good reputation so if you're comparing it to new machines it's a no brainer.

    Incredibly H.E.A.V.Y. they don't sell real fast so wait and offer less money. If you really want one I have one... It would cost a pile to ship it though.

    I guess if you sew for long periods of time this deal could be a life saver
