    Thrift finds

    Last week I was lucky enough to find this sewing table for 20.00 at the St. Vincent De Paul resale and today I got this haul at the Goodwill. A Suduko Beard game- 5.99, large cut of fabric- .99, a wire storage unit- 5.99 and a Baby Lock BL302 serger for 12.99 at senior discount day prices, all for 19.00.
    I'm having trouble with the second picture so will try a second posting

    Oh to find a serger for such a great price. Would love to have one but won't pay the big bucks for it, so I'll just keep looking. DH and I go to thrift stores every week and I have found some great machines but no sergers. Lucky you. Enjoy your haul.

    Please meet Lovey. She's a Tabby/Siamese mix. I love how talkative she is thanks to her siamese relations.

    My mom bought this table many years ago from the JC Penney catalogue. I remember she paid $19.99 for it way back then! When her macular degeneration ended her sewing days, all her sewing items came to me. I use it this table daily.

    I have this table, too. My mother had it with her Viking sewing machine. It's quite heavy and very sturdy.

    How does the table work? It looks sort of small to me. Could you take a picture with the machine on it and post. Very interesting.
