Hi Everyone:

I got this email this morning. As I wasnt interested in the machines I asked her if I could repost the conversations here incase any of you were interested in them.

If any of you are interested please email her and mention you saw it in my posting.

I have 4 Eureka Whisks Model 160A Brand New in the original boxes, with attachments, original paperwork (Manual/Warranty) & original bags.

I will also be acquiring some old heavy Hoovers brand new in the box down the road.

A friend of mine had a Vacuum Sewing & Janitorial Company; obviously many years ago. He’s had it all in storage. He recently decided he needed to make some room. He has me selling them on Craigslist a few at a time. We’ll see how that goes. Like you said, they are old vacuums; even when the are brand new in the box, I would suppose.

If you need any information from those…let me know.

Hi Carrie:

While they arent something that I would want I was wondering if you would mind me posting your email and email address on the VCCC (Vacuum Cleaner Collectors) web site. Also do you have an asking price I could quote for the machines? You'd be far more likely to sell them to the collectors there than on Craiglist.


PS - What I am really looking for is Goblin Vacuums or parts and some of the old Lewyt stuff if he has any of that in the storage.

Hi Doug,

Sure, I don’t mind you posting my name & email on your site.

My intention wasn’t in trying to sell them to YOU, but just seeing if you were interested in, or needed copies of the literature/warranty/attachment list/photo of bag style. I guess I am a “collector” of literature…with everything we own that doesn’t have it; so I figure others seek it out as well.

The Eureka Whisk 160A he has me listing for $20 each; I think he would take $15 each though. You would know, better than I, if that is a fair price. I have 4 of them at my house, and he has more up at his place. While the machines are brand new, the original shipping boxes leave a little to be desired; no mold, just discoloration.

I don’t have the Hoovers in my possession yet, but soon; they do take up space and are heavy.

I will ask him if he has any of the other brands that you are really interested in.

What kind of hoovers I wonder? Do you know if he would ship them,or would it not be worth it to the states?
