A small Antique shop provided quite a bit of browsing opportunity!
No, there were no BIG sewing machines, but there was this cute little red one in the window!
Cute as it was – I already have several toy machines, and I’m out of room for them --- so this little sweetie stayed right where it was in the window display.
I did get quite the chuckle out of the vintage “True Romance” magazines in the window as well ---
Can you read the small print at the top?
This Magazine is circa 1950 – and the top line reads: “Shocking Revelations of a Love Cult Girl: I Married A Polygamist” LOL! Well hey, this was the 1950s, They didn’t use the S word on the cover of anything! But love cult? I found it a bit funny.
I think this magazine was supposed to be part of the “Valentine” display ----and no, he is not giving her a box with a ribbon AND a giant plug-in…..that cord was just in the way in the window display ---but then, I suppose there could be a blender in that box? :c)
Or maybe he knows that giving an appliance un-asked-for as a valentine’s gift is one of the 8 threats to a happy marriage? ;c)
Just another street view as the sun went behind the mountains!
Of course I couldn’t resist THIS sign:
I’m saving this one for NEXT year’s mystery! HA!
Buttons and baubles and a whole basket of…..do you know what these are?
Bobbin lace Bobbins!
These look well worn….someone was busy with these. I remember watching someone demo bobbin lace once --- and it takes a whole slough of bobbins wound with thread/yarn, each being passed over or under the other to create the design as the lace is made. Who made lace with these old beauties?
And then there is the lovely pink sewing box itself….pink velvet. Oh, if these items could talk!
Just a happy me!
Thanks again go to the Quail Country Quilters for showing this gal such a great time!
