    Today, while walking our local flea market my DH and I met our florist. We talked about things we look for at the flea market and one of the things I mentioned was vintage and antique sewing machines. Just a few minutes after leaving our DFlorist( he's done floral work for our family for over 30 yrs)my DH says look, and points to a stall. There sat a pretty little sewing machine. She looked relatively clean and her parts moved. Then he asked if I wanted her. He even went to get the cash to pay for her. What did I pay you ask? A whopping $25. I looked her up she is a 99-13, made 8/4/1925! Sorry no pics yet. I don't know how. I'll ask my kid. lol

    Congrats. While on vacation, I found a LQS that must have had 20 old machines - mostly singers. They were all refurbished and gorgeous with prices to match.
