    Vintage Giggles aka What are they smoking????

    We're always finding good stuff on Craig's list or ebay to joke and giggle about...let's post some of them here!

    Like this one:
    http://portland.craigslist.org/clc/atq/2785404975.html

    This one amuses:

    Uhmmm...sure...why not?
    http://boise.craigslist.org/hsh/2787937606.html

    Can't imagine why this one hasn't been snatched up!

    What have you found lately?
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I kind of like this Brother machine ...it sort of looks like my Atlas machine (bought it from Billy) that was manufactured by the Brother co.

    Here is one for ya:

    Just saw this one in my area for the 2nd time. I think the old fence panels add to the ambiance.

    1951 was a good year.

    a white treadle like one of Charlee's listings was at the auction today, I didn't stick around to see what it went for (have 2 already) but I am sure it was under 25 knowing the crowd

    I like that old Brother too - but not for that price...and I would rather have a funky old Morse

    Oh, and if I wanted to travel, I could pick up this 201. Oops, I mean the "15k88." http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/for/2784563956.html. Plus it has one of those rare and expensive button holers.

    But, if you're looking for something portable, have I got a deal for you! http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/atq/2780368780.html.

    Umm...I just don't see how you could convert a sewing machine into a pottery wheel? http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/art/2779149122.html.

    I think some of these sellers are out of touch with reality.

    Easy-peasy!! You just turn the machine on end and build your pottery on the handwheel as it turns! ~snicker~ I love the pricing... $429.25...does that include tax?

    Gee, maybe I could convert my pottery wheel into a sewing machine...
    And the person that list the FW as a 15-88 and just had it serviced? Something not right there - wouldn't the shop correct the person about what they had? So either - wasn't taken to a shop or don't take your machine to that shop!

    Oh these are sooooo funny! I am belly laughing! At first I clicked on the first set of four and couldn't figure out what was so funny until I went back and looked at the prices!
    Don't find fault, find a remedy.
