    http://cosprings.craigslist.org/fuo/3397944501.html last item in the listing. I really really want this treadle but she's smoking crack if she thinks she's going to get 500.00 for it. I sent her an email but she didn't respond. I may send her another one. What would y'all pay? It appears to be a 15 clone. I'm only drawn to it mainly because its German and so am I

    Nice but she is smoking crack for that price.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    That is no 15 clone - it is a very nice machine in nice shape. You might try getting her price down some - depends on how bad you want it - it is a German long bobbin sewing machine.
    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I thought that was a little odd, as well. Why would the bed be rusted to a fair-thee-well and the decals look new?They look like Chinese imposter decals to me.

    I do want it really bad but I know her price is way too high. I finally heard back from her and she's not budging. Said she needs to pay bills and wont take less...so I guess she doesn't need to pay bills that badly because she's already listed it 5 times and nobody's biting.

    Oh well. She has my name and number and when she realizes I'm right maybe she will call me. I still have a few items on my wish list and a German treadle is one of them. Figured maybe I could find a good Gritzner but this is the first accessible one I've come across.

    Sew, did you email and kindly inform him or her that they are a dumb @$$! about the information regarding the machine?
    I actually know the intersection mentioned - it's near where my grandmother used to live.

    They changed it! Before it said that the machine was a Singer before the company was called Singer.

    Seeing is unbelieving! I have not been looking for more sewing machines, REALLY! But I do occasionally look just for fun. Could not believe the price on this one. I guess since it has been raining almost non stop here people are staying in the house and smokin too much of the good stuff.

    This one has been on CL for a long time. It is now down to $20. It started out for a whole lot more.

    A bit of "Eye Candy" for us vintage machine lovers. Some sewing going on with them.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Well, I also have piano dust, but even more special--I have scrapbook desk dust with GLITTER in it! OOOOOHHHHHH!

    Bet folks are beating down the doors for this lovely throttle machine. I, for one, don't own a throttle! I guess I didn't know I needed one because my treadles all work wonderfully!
