@TartanPaint
Here's the snips I promised.  Note the image of the machine is taken from the web but mine is in very clean condition, as you can see from the needle plate image on the original for sale listing.

Unfortunately when you get to my age @TartanPaint, time is short so you don't waste time wrapping things up, it comes out unfiltered.

I'm beginning to think @annieeg is Frank Nutt's alter ego!  0_0

Oh you don't want to go Googling anything you see on here @TartanPaint. That way lies winkelwagens, madness and the poor house.  :S

@wrenkins

I'm learning that.

I'm also learning I probably need to have a secret source of income or have a wealthy relative leave me their entire estate. I've been burned twice on Ebay and once on FB Marketplace over the past few days. I literally got an email telling me I had to buy a machine because it was the womans' little girls' birthday next day and if I didn't she couldn't get any presents. This was after she raised the price of the machine by £35 because I asked her to cost up a courier!

Then there's a woman on Ebay who is demanding stupid money for a broken machine. she has one bid at the starting price and then nothing. It's possibly a logic board and new foot controller replacement but all I'm getting is "These machines go for £300 new!" Yes, working ones do!

I'm cheering myself up tonight. Someone locally is selling a charming little teak sewing cabinet. Thats a sewing and restoration project in one so that should stop me from resorting to throwing a huge tantrum.

**thinking happy thoughts**

Keep an eye on our buying and selling thread here and don't be in too much of a rush. People on here only sell lovely things and are honest and up front.  :)
Buy cheap, buy twice.

@TartanPaint As well as keeping an eye on what people are selling on here, you could always put an “in search of” (ISO) post of your own if there is something in particular that you are after. I’m sure that some most  of us have items that could need rehoming.
