Good buys and New Fabric

Yesterday I stopped by the Junk Store!!! Picked up a few things....first off, I bought this sewing machine for $20!!!! As you can see in the photo of the door, it comes with a full box of things, oil bottle and the orignal manual! Can't wait to get it cleaned up!!! I didn't have room in the car yesterday to bring it home so I just took photos of it in the store. My sister is picking it up for me today! It is called a New Home by Westinghouse.



I also picked up this chair for $5. I really like it, not sure where I will put it, I may have to store it in the outbuilding until we get the house done. My outbuilding is overflowing with junk!

While I was in the Junk Store yesterday, I snapped a photo so that you could see the junk you have to dig through! And this is just one room of it. I think there are 3 big rooms.Recieved my new Civil War fabrics in the mail today!!!! I love them! Can't wait to start cutting into them! I have a couple of things to do today before I start sewing. Clean house, do some laundry, and put up another wall in the new house! Hubby is home today so we are going to try to put up another wall! Then I am free to sew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great bargains! Don't you love junk stores and goodwill! If you'll check my blog I have some pictures of my latest finds!

But I can't get fabric as cheap as you do. I still remember was it 56 for 86 dollars or 86 yards for 56 dollars. What bargains you get on fabric.

That machine is so cool! And the fabrics! You need to just build walls today and spend quality time with Richard. I need to get ahead and stay ahead on sewing hours. Giggle!

I love that machine! What a great find! And your new fabrics are beautiful! Good luck with the wall, I am sure it will go wonderfully! Also, I love the Marine fabric in the previous post - my future son in law is a Marine and I just may have to see if I can find some to make him something!

Great buys at the Junk store...I can easily see why you enjoy shopping there...does the stuff change pretty frequently?

New fabric is so pretty...it will make up some beautiful blocks.

Take care and don't hurt yourself while being a carpenter.

The junk store looks like my kind of place. You never know what good things you will find. For some reason I can never seem to pass up a good old chair. Have a good time working on the house.
