I saw this at a thrift store today. I'm not particularly interested in it, just wondering if it's worth anything to anyone here. I only gave it a cursory looking-over. Seems well used, but in one piece, some dings, brush and wheels were ok. Outer bag in pretty decent shape, not perfect, but very passable.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw it was that the bag looked too plump. Sure enough, it's completely filled. I mean stuffed. I didn't power it on, but if it could fill the bag, likely it works.

They were asking $9.99. Funny, the Dyson next to it was $4.99.

Get both! I just paid $50 for a Dyson even used. They are very expensive vacuums and don't show up for that cheap very often. I still have the Turbo Convertible I got out of the dumpster at the trailer park in 2010.

I like it, it's very simple model but a good cleaner. I'd have a hard time passing on it even though I really don't need one.

I had a similar one I found in the trash once but it had an orange hood I think. I wish I had kept it but for some reason I was very afraid to plug it in. And I thought it was older than it actually was at the time.

It's a North Canton HOOVER

Convertible. RUN back and get it. Well, just MY opinion.

Sorry to disappoint, but I don't really have any inclination towards it.

Was just wondering if any of you guys were interested in it. Or perhaps needed some part from it. I wouldn't be opposed to shipping it to someone here.
