Today in Maryland it is cold - mid 30s - and spitting rain/ice/sleet. Not a good day. DH and I decided to go to the new place just outside of town and try their breakfast. As we drove past the Fairgrounds we saw that they were having an estate auction and a flea market.
We went to breakfast and then back to the Fairgrounds. The estate sale was almost done, so we didn't even go in the building. We went to the two buildings were the flea market was. There were not 2 dozen vendors in total. But we looked around anyway.
DH found some HO track cork for his layout for $1. And a brand new version of a small-ish crock pot that I inherited from my dad. We used it a lot and it was really old so we were able to replace it with a little newer - brand new never used - model for $3. So as we are looking around I see this.
Looks like a sewing machine - oh well let's see.
WOW - it is a 185 - the machine that I learned to sew on. The sticker said $15.
I asked her how much and she said I could take it for - $5. So I quickly paid her and left.
I had started looking for them on eBay and stuff. They were going for about $100 with and without shipping. At this price, I think I am going to let Billy have his way with her, when he feels better. I can just imagine what a beautiful girl she can become when treated like the lady that she is. And I have a cabinet that DH is refinishing for me that I found at the county dump site - FREE. And her measurements for it are perfect. LUCKY LUCKY ME. Not such a bad day after all.
