Yesterday in between doing laundry, cleaning and packing, Kim and I slipped away…our husbands didn’t even know that we had gone! We had heard about a place on Pierson St and Cactus St. in Desert Hot Springs that sold old sewing machines and sewing memorabilia…it was our LAST chance to go and have a look for ourselves!! So off we went!
I thought you might like to see it for yourselves…because in this case the pictures are worth a million words!!
We had heard that they sell sewing machine…well this really didn’t cover it! What an understatement if ever there was one! There were sewing machines in every nook and cranny! Bonnie Hunter would be hyperventilating!
Little black boxes containing Featherweight SM all over the store…all for $450 each!!
The quilts started at $50…
Yes, that’s a gun on the table…don’t know if it’s real…yikes!
Now if I was Bonnie Hunter, I would be on my hands and knees dragging that green case out for a look see…. Nope, it didn’t happen!
This is an old industrial sewing machine!! Wow!! Hey, I didn’t even SEE that toilet when I was there!! Geeze…I wonder what was inside the bowl? Eeewh!!!
What ever this was…I loved it!! How unique!
A carpet beater…can’t have too many of these around the house!! haha
An old juicer??…
I loved this sled…and they had about four of them…remember we ARE out in the desert!!
So…do you get the idea…tons of STUFF!
Everywhere you looked there was sewing junk…or some other kind of junk..all good and all expensive! There were no deals to be had…but it was sure fun to look! And it didn’t prevent us both from bringing home a wee small treasure or two!
I will clean up my loot today and show you tomorrow you what I bought…can you stand it? :0)
