Yesterday my husband and I went to the Zoar Harvest festival. We toured the old houses, gardens, and craft booths. We looked through the antique dealers tent and I spotted a couple old sewing machines. They were child sized and so nice but no way could I manage the price tags! I do like to collect thimbles and saw a few I liked but again the price tags made me grit my teeth in frustration. I guess I'll go back to garage sales. I do adore a good deal. What are the chances I'll be able to find a gold plated thimble at a garage sale? Any body else out there collect sewing notions? Where do you find your best deals?
