Look but don’t touch

The good part of doing all those long days at work over the past few weeks is I now get a string of days off in a row – hooray! To get myself in the mood for knuckling down to work on all my outstanding projects, yesterday I went for a wander to the Paddington Antique Centre. There wasn’t much of note until I made it to their new sewing corner – where I spent a very happy hour sorting through old Australian Home Journals, about 100 vintage sewing patterns (seemingly randomly priced and yes I did buy a couple!) and oodles of over-priced (but visually spectacular) vintage buttons. High on a little shelf at the back of the display was a selection of children’s sewing machines. My favourite was this Vulcan, priced at a cool $320 – yikes!
