One of the activities we always enjoy over Memorial Day weekend is garage sale shopping. It's a REALLY big event here in Bear Valley. We make lots of impulse purchases, and enjoy socializing with our community.
This year I ran across a vintage sewing machine that had to come home with me. (!) It is exactly like my Mom's machine from the 1950s, the one I learned to sew on. I don't know what happened to hers -- it disappeared after I left home, many many years ago. But here was another one, in excellent running condition, and at the right price ... and even though I already have **several** sewing machines, I now also have a Singer 15-91 enjoying a place of honor in the bay window in the living room. The memories it is calling to mind are priceless!
