You little hussy




 The local Salvo's have started doing 'collectables week', There have two of these in the last 6 or so months. I'm in two minds about them, as it means all the good old stuff gets held out the back for these special sales, but it does give me an opportunity to get some very cool stuff, all at once, and if I'm really organized...potentially save my pennies for this special occasion! So last week was collectibles week, & on Monday morning my car had a flat battery. A sign from the universe to not be blowing mullah on un-needed goodies perhaps!
I had a nice wee hermit week at home plodding, fluffing, enjoying having all the kids (bar Ginny poo) at school, and not having to drive ANYWHERE!
But then.....
on Friday...
my salvo's spy informed me that all collectible will be half price on Friday, so as I had to collect the milk in town anyway, I tootled in for a wee squander and holy shit balls look what I found...& bought for $12.50!
I.LOVE.HER
A LOT!
She has all her original bits including 3 interchangeable cams which do all kinds of fancy stitches.
And my favourite colour too.
Thanks salvos fairy
I love you too ;-)

GAAAH it is ammmmaaazing. I actually gasped out loud when I saw it, and again when you wrote it was only $12.50!? (even the full $25 would have made me gasp!)
I love it when the thrift gods smile down on us : )

(i also like that they use the word "collectable" instead of 'vintage'. very refreshing..)

Wow - jealous much. When I worked in a fabric shop last year we had one of these come in for a service. Huskys are great - but this one is super cute to boot. I love the lining inside the box too. Ohh I feel like I'm cheating on my machine. Ha!
