Re Ben,,

I know you like the later model Royals, but I will try to dig out my 880 i think you might like to see, it is a 78 model, not brand new in the box, but darn near it, i have used it a few times, but supposedly the woman who had it just used it a few times and put it back in the box, it really is like new..

My Wish List

I only have one item on my wish list.  An Electrolux Model AF with either cord winder.  Looking for one in near mint condition.  That model is the only vacuum I am missing from my small collection of TOL Electrolux vacuums.

Can you see how much postage would be. I'd love to sell you a Kirby Tradition, but that postage is gonna kill you.

I don't think Postage

jfalberti's profile picture

would be that bad.  I just bought a Kirby DS 80 , a Compact C2,  and an Electrolux Silverado, and postage was less than $30 each via UPS.  I'll check and see what it would cost and get back to you.

Shipping charges for Tradition

jfalberti's profile picture
Hi John,

I checked UPS, and it should cost less than $100 to ship, depending on weight. I'd be fine with that. Have you figured out how much you want for it?

Not really.

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
But, you'd be willing to pay that much to ship it to you?
Let's talk about it more.
I'd love nothing more than to ship that thing out of the 'residence'.
I'd personally like no one to have it more than YOU.
That way, you'll always be haunted by John...and a cellar dweller from, as Mike Gravelin calls it, " The Pristine Palace". Oddly , he calls it that, especially after he's been IN it, numerous times.
Let's talk. And, thank you for your interest.

Thanks John

jfalberti's profile picture
The Tradition is special to me because when I started my career with Kirby, it was the first model I sold. I had one that I traded in that was in really rough shape, and I restored it to like new condition. Then, for whatever reason possessed me, I gave it to a family member as a wedding present. I want another one, and it would be even more special if it came from you. Lets talk more. I'm sure we can work something out. I know you have two. Do you have any pictures of them?

The Only Thing Left

Having a terminal illness I have been giving away instead of collecting. I recently posted and shipped lots of items on AWorg. It changes everything when you pull up to a thrift store and your heart starts to pound in anticipation before you realize there's nothing you need. That said, the one and only thing on my wish list is an 8 inch Corning corn flower pattern cake pan. I have 2 but need the 3rd to hold most cake recipes.

NSS external filter bag "Bronco" wet-dry vacuum
Certified Pile Lifter-older model.
Lewyt "Big Wheel"
Air Way Uprights-all models-this is a tall order,isn't it?
