ugggg trying to find a sewing machine......

I'm trying to find a good sewing machine but I'm very broke right now, so I looked on craigslist, where people around you are selling things, and it used to be full of good deals but holy mother of goodness!!  the prices are super crazy!  Hubby is out of town so I can drive around to 2nd hand shops and get one today either.  It really sucks because I have a great idea for something but I need to start sewing the prototypes and can't because I can't get my hand on a freakin' sewing machine!  I guess I'll have to wait until Mon. to drive around and see what is out there but I want to start sewing today!!  I actually wanted to start about 2 days ago!  yes, I know I'm throwing a temper tantrum....LOL, but I hate waiting when I'm all geared up to do something you know?  Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.  :)

LOL, cheap and works...lol,  I'm really not picky at the moment.  Later down the road I'll get a new one but right now I'm just looking for any thing that will do a good job and a good price.  :)

I put up a post on craigslist a while back asking for sewing machines (so i could repair them and make them pretty, old hobby)... i got sooo many emails from people who wanted to get rid of their old ones. You might want to try posting a 'want' ad on craigslist.. you might be able to find a working one for free. =)

Most people want you to go through paypal and I don't have anything like that.  :(
