I know I'll post in "Supermarket", but, after The VCCC convention, I MUST get some of them out of here.
I just want to see if anyone might have an interest in some of these.
Golden anniversary Electrolux shampooer, Oreck (portapower wannabe), 3 Kirbys (one full set of red, 2 blue, an OLD, OLD, (Jesus ran this) Westinghouse upright, bissel carpetsweeper, Convertibles( 1 model 70, 2 blue rangers, Elite, a few Dial-A-Matics, Convertible (plastic base, butterscotch hood/base, just a few Constellations, a Portable or two.
I'm sure more are there.
These were NEVER part of my collection.
This summer, I need to clean up things, do some carpentry, etc. I'd like these things to leave here, and go to people who WANT them.

The Elite is not the Convertible, but the plastic Elite. I'm not sure if I have an extra Convertible Elite.

Hi John, Iím searching for a Dial-A-Matic

I think itís the model 1140 although Iím not positive on that. My grandmother had one and it was dark brown with a blue/green front. And I remember it had a height adjuster too.

Joel, I KNEW you'd be curious about that ReGINa, lol
There are several plastic Convertibles,,,,a decent 70 (metal), and several plastic ones,,, in need of cords, a spa treatment////// Joe K/// I know you want that oreck, too. I THINK there's an extra Turquoise Dial-a-matic, as well as an orange (Bewitched)//////// I'll get cracking at these now that the VCC'C' convention is over.
Hans, I'll get on that Westinghouse, too.
I'll be glad to get them all out of here, for numerous reasons.

Hey John

I've sent you a couple of (somewhat lengthy) messages. Lol
One to the e-mail address in your profile, and one message through this site.
I'm not sure if they're reaching you.
I'm trying to get you to take my money! 😄

Hello John

Sorry to bother you, but just following up if you are willing to part with the Connie 858 pumpkin and seal griege machine. I'd be interested in any functional Connie as an alternative. Thank you. Todd.

Sorry John

I don't want to be a pest either, but I don't know if you got my message in response to your "possible" "green machine."

I even tried an alternate e-mail address that you had posted here a while back.
I don't even know if it's still valid.
Sorry. I worry. It's what I do best.

That's the e-mail that I used most recently.
If you could e-mail me some pictures, and let me know what you want for it, that would be great.
I'm definitely interested!

Hi gottahaveahoover! I was wondering if you have a spare handle fork part for a convertible u4009 because I found out it has a crack that makes the handle crooked. Thank you and happy hoovering!

Hi John,

Hope you are well! Just catching up here. I would be interested in the dial a matics if you still have them. I know I am a little late. I hope to finally meet you in Kansas City next year in person if I attend the next convention. My email is if that is easier for you.

Appreciate, Richard.
