Stove buying

I am having the hardest time buying a stove :( The space in my kitchen is made for a larger stove, fitting of a good old country kitchen or a large family kitchen :) The stoves at the store are for the smaller family and leave my space with tons of room to spare. The stove that came with the house was a standard and while the burners work the oven does not :( Since Christmas is the season for baking, that is a little bit of a problem. A stove {oven} must be found!! The delightful pawn shop in Medford buys stoves from restaurant closeout auctions, I called and was told that they may be getting one on Thursday. The problem is, I don't know if I should wait that long. What if it falls through :( My sis is skeptical about used stoves but there is no way a large family can afford a new 36" or larger stove. :( Well, I'll let you know how it turns out, right now I am still undecided. Thoughts?

Fifteen years ago, when I moved into my grandparents old house,I got an O'Keefe and Merritt stove for $50.00 to go in the large stove space in the kitchen.(It's like the one in the kitchen on "Everybody Loves Raymond"--but I had mine long before that show...)At the time,everybody thought I was crazy to buy a 50 year old stove--now everybody wants my stove! Used is GOOD - especially when it comes to old,big stoves!
