Savings


I saved at least $60 today.  I didn't buy any of the used sewing machines we saw when we were out at estate sales.  Every time I see an old machine, I want it.  I have no use or need for another one, but that doesn't stop me from wanting.  I don't use the old ones I have (not yet any way) and they just sit around the house, but I want more.



These are three of the five.  Actually, I didn't find these so very tempting, but they are pretty interesting.  The other two that I didn't buy were in cabinets, and in better shape.  I hate that I am so tempted, but I really do think they are very cool.

No $1 finds yet this weekend, but there is still tomorrow, or rather later today.

The old machines are really cool.

I have to say that I love, love, love all of my 2 antique machines. They're just for display, but are beauties! Then there's the vintage Featherweight, Fernie.....she actually got used recently, the purpose for buying her. But I do understand why you're attracted to these machines.

I love the 2 vintages ones I got in December! I have only used the FW once, but the 301a is sewing Easy Street together! :) Good job resisting and saving money!

I know the feeling I need to reduce some of my collections. But good for you passing it up.

The money you saved today is money you'll have to spend when you come across that really special machine.

I used to have one like that third one, but I think mine was a little older. Weighed a ton, but was a real workhorse.

Im with Marg ...you saved a heap.

I have a vintage machine here that rarely gets used. But its great to have a back up. I have a friend who has about 10 old machines and every one of them works!
