Broken Machine, Broken Dreams :c(
I bought this cute little number on ebay. The listing plainly states that the machine is in WORKING CONDITION.
Doesn't working condition usually mean that it has at least a belt and a foot pedal? There is neither.
The first picture shows the machine in the ad....the others, what I received!
Not just that, but the machine was packed SO poorly that the wooden base broke all apart in the shipping, and bent the spool pin! The bobbin hook mechanism was left to roll around the bottom of the box. :c(
It's a disaster. I love this little blue machine, and it's paint job and decals are beautiful. But when a listing says it is in "working condition" this is just not what I expect.
I have contacted the seller, and will be contacting ebay. Something else funny,as I was tracking the package,I saw he printed the label at only weighing 8lbs. UPS said I was to recieve this 8lb box. If that isn't fraud I don't know what is, because the box weighed 33lbs.
