    Our School System had an auction this morning and we picked up some really cool stuff for my sewing room. After a little paint and repair I am going to have a great space! I got the desk for $1 and it has drawers on the other side too. I am going to have a frame built to make it a little higher and put wheels on it.

    I have a old card catalog file like your last picture. Looks like you find fun treasures.

    I know. =) They didn't sell and the kids wanted them.. And I did get the table for a buck..and the card catalog for a buck. The most expensive thing was the chalkboard for $15.

    That red typewriter is an IBM Selectric...that was a very expensive machine back in the early 70's. I had one just like that when I was working, just our of high school...

    I really like the table the machines are on...

    That yellow wire book rack is one of those spinning things that will get a coat of paint and hold my patterns. i won't know what to do when everything actually has a home and not shoved in boxes. =)

    The table is awesome! But heavy. It has 24 drawers. And that chalkboard weighs about 50 lbs. Ought to be interesting trying to hang it. =)

    They sure would have sold alot more..if things hadn't been left out in the rain storm yesterday. There were sewing machines & sergers that were just soaked. Projectors computer things...it was a mess. The typewriters we got were wet..If they don't work after they dry out how cute will they be as planters?? =)
