Personal Item for Sale:

Vintage Mayline Solid Oak Drafting Table: 6 foot top with 2 drawers. Extra large 72" x 38" table top / sturdy oak table in good condition. This is a really large, solid table, perfect for an artist or illustrator. Table comes with the good karma of 40 years of drawing, sculpting and painting. Sanding will clean up the top for you to make your own history. Hinge and tilt assembly needs to be attached and the front drawer sticks a bit. The table includes the stabilizing bars, but I have also used it without the bars giving me a more open floor space under the table. Disassembly of the table for transport is simple. Cost: $200 - contact Trudy: talkingcatt@yahoo.com (posted 12/1/14)

Juki Sewing Machine: I am selling a gently used Juki industrial sewing machine. Model DDL 8300. I bought it from Craigslist 3 months ago, and haven't used it. I bought it for $500 at the time, as it was almost new. I am selling it for $350. Let me know if you are interested. I live in a second story with no elevator though, so moving it out will need at least two strong guys - just heads up. I also have an industrial steam iron if you are interested, which I am selling for $70. Please contact: jennifer-leon@sbcglobal.net
