    I haven't been to a Flea Market in over 12 years. This past Friday I went and found 2 treasures.
    This Babylock machine for $20 and Rowenta Iron for $5.

    I told the seller that he didn't get it from around here. He said he got from North Carolina.

    LOVE it! ROFL - Some would even ask...how about motorcycles and cars?

    Congrats on the scores at the flea market. Are you going back next week, next month or in 12 years? :)
