LMAO What an oxymoron right? :D Well, I am new to sewing and would like to purchase a second hand serger. No one in or around town has a second hand one for less than 700 bucks. My SAHM income ;d hehe won't afford me that luxury for used items. :D I want to be able to serge my product for improved durability. :D I live near Athens, Georgia. Don't mind traveling and don't mind shipping as long as it is the true shipping cost. :D TIA,

you're close enough to Atlanta to be able to find just about anything. Check out the local dealers (I'm on the west side of Atlanta and our sewing machine dealer has used sergers) and sewing shops in Atlanta. Also, check on Craigs list for Atlanta. I found used serger for $100 on this site. Can't remember the model but it was pretty new and I've had no problems. The woman just wasn't into sewing like she thought. (I've also bought a simple sewing machine there for $30 just for quick stitching when needed. So I don't have to change out thread, etc.) Hope you find something

You can also check out HSN.COM. I don't know how fancy of a machine you want but they have Euro-Pro's under $300.00. Overall I don't know the rep of the company but I do have two of their machines that I have been happy with. The best thing is they have a payment installment plan and 30 day return policy, which is currently extended to Jan. 31, 2007. So you can try it for 2 months and see if it's worth it to yah.

I don't know if you're still looking, but I have a Bernina 800DL with thread, all parts, and just serviced that I'm selling. I had bought 2 sergers, but realized that I only have need of 1!:bluesmile You can email me at <email address removed for privacy> if you're interested! (I'm in Pennsylvania)
