Haunted sewing machine

i've got to stop surfing ebay
That link'll stop working in a few days, so here's the description:
Haunted Sewing Machine

My brother in law was at a garage sale. And saw several machines for sale. The lady at the sale told him that it was her Grandmothers machine. And through the years she had received several as gifts but this one was her favorite and she would not use the others. He thought it was strange how happy they were to get rid of it but he thought the machine was cool looking and liked the story behind it so he bought it to give as a gift to his mother. But after having it for a while he began to notice that the machine was making strange sounds at night. He also saw the foot pedal moving on its own a few times. His dog Zoe will not go near the machine without barking at it. My daughter who is 1 yrs old has had conversations with the machine. Well her babble type conversations. She will sit on the floor in front of it for a long period of time and just babble away to it. The people he bought the machine from have moved away so we have no way to return it to them. He has tried to give away the machine to several people but after hearing the story about it they don't want it. So I am starting this auction off at $1. He just wants to be rid of the machine. It scares him and his family. I am totally convinced that the machine is being haunted by the grandmother because she couldn't bear to leave the world without her machine so she never left and is in that machine. He refused to give it to anyone without them knowing the truth about the machine so that is why I am auctioning it. So he is comfortable knowing that the machine is going to someone that knows about its history. Thanks for looking.

Condition of Machine:

Was kept in storage after grandmothers death. Don't know how long that was. My BIL has had it a year. But all parts are original parts as far as we can tell. And the machine does work. Model #AH923668. Manufactured in 1948 in Elizabeth, NJ


Ok so I had my brother in law send me pictures of the machine to put on this auction. I am completely and totally convinced now. Outlined is the picture of a very pissed off person. I have outlined thier head , 1 eye and the begining of thier mouth. I have also posted the original for you too see. And of course others of the machine itself. PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN BIDDING!! I truely believe that this machine is haunted. I believed before the pictures but even more so now.

Now the legal Stuff:

ONLY bid if you plan to pay!! This is not meant as a joke!! We really want to get rid of this machine and its ghost. PayPal only please. Credit cards are fine. Will only accept bids from buyers that have confirmed addresses. And I reserve the right to cancel any bids I may think are fakes. Shipping for the item will be either UPS or USPS. Will ship with in 2 days of payment. Thanks!




I recieved an email this morning with another picture of my machine. The person said they saw 2 other faces in the pictures. I see them too!! I cant figure how to add it to this auction...but if you would like to see it just email me and I will send it to you. Thanks everyone for looking! I cant believe how many have been! But Please SOMEONE bid!! We really want to get rid of this machine! Thats why we started it for only $1!!
