I stopped at roadside fruit stand today. Funny little place....lots of tourist trinkets and antiques as well as the fresh fruit. In amongst the antiques was an old Singer....complete with wooden, domed carying case....for only $165.00!!!! The sign says it works. I am flying home, so had to leave it there. I am very tempted to go back and get it and see if I can bribe someone to keep it for me until next trip out with a vehicle.
Maybe I'll do a bit of checking online to see what shipping would cost to get it home. :D
