While antiquing with Dan and my father-in-law in Brockport, New York during Christmastime, we came across this sewing machine for sale.
That is until my Father-in-law said, as we were pulling out of town "If you want something and you really like it, you should get it. You can always find room for it later!" That was all it took. Well, that and a pouty face in Dan's general direction. We turned back around and bought the thing!
An excellent find in my book. I think Dan cursed his dad the whole way home for opening his mouth. Oh well, it worked in my favor :)
