I used this site to create a “recipe” that allowed me to get an email every time a treadle sewing machine was posted to craigslist. I passed quite a few up and was able to get a really beautiful one. I have other recipes searching for various breeds of feeder pigs, spoiled hay for mulching, and more. This could be a huge time-saver so you don’t have to perpetually check for new listings.
