Okay, what's up with all of the sideways pictures of sewing machines on Craigslist? Uh, might be better to post a picture where people don't have to turn their heads sideways to see it.

That is all.

Oh yeah, I've noticed a lot of those lately too (I guess those ones just have good personalities ).

A sideways picture is better than the ones that only show the back of the machine, lol

Or pics of closets with closed doors and the caption, "I'm in here, and I'm gorgeous!"?

I've emailed some of the people who post photos of their machines inside closed cabinets. I asked them would they buy a car from someone who posted a picture of their garage? I've never gotten a reply, although once (just once) the person re-listed the ad with a photo of the machine.

What are they thinking?

That is so clever...a picture of the garage with the car inside! That's exactly what it's like!
