    Who else would love to rummage through an All Saints clothing shop....

    At the vintage sewing machines?

    Yes, I would love to inspect them up close and personal to see just how they disabled each machine.

    The shop fronts/window displays are stunning. I saw the shop in Cardiff a few years ago and I was stopped in my tracks with all of those machines staring back at me. I did not go in to view more closely - not my style of clothing.

    I would have to have a dry shirt handy. Or a bib for the droll.

    I'd rather shop for a machine than the clothing.

    I wonder where they got them all. And are they actually disabled permanently, or just "blocked" to keep people from messing with them? The nearest one to me would be in Chicago, so I won't get to find out first hand any time soon. At least they are warm and dry.

    Read yesterday, from a Google search, that they had ruddy great bolts through the base of them.

    I believe they're based in Spitalfields which is where my sister went to senior school many many years ago.
