When we were in Bonaparte, Iowa there was an old Mill that had been converted to an Antique and Collectables shop. See what I found in there!
I got excited when I saw the Featherweight but…….it was $300 and the plating was all off the bottom. I keep hoping I’ll find one for under $100. I also spotted the 1591 which didn’t have a tag and found out it was only $57 which was very reasonable but………..like Builder Bob said……..you already have 3….why do you need another. So I didn’t buy it. There were also a couple Spartans that the woman said were a imitation Featherweight. They looked like 3/4 machines to me though. The one I looked at was $180 and looked in good shape but…….I didn’t bring it home.
What I did buy was some Christmas fabrics in Cantril, Iowa at the Dutchman’s Store. Builder Bob got his pickles……6 jars and about 8 bags of popcorn so we probably won’t be coming here again until next year. I told myself I would only buy fabric if it was on sale but didn’t see any I wanted and I didn’t want to come home empty handed…….
Now here is something you don’t see everyday in Iowa!
This was in Cantril, Iowa and Builder Bob actually spotted it first and pulled over, I guess he knows what makes a fun blog post! A camel, can you believe that!
There were a couple goats too and I got out to take a couple pictures, I was hoping the camel would either look at me or walk over.
I must have been talking “goat” because pretty sound this cute gal came over to check me out.
The goat obviously wanted her picture taken.
I think she was asking if I liked her side profile better………..wish I would have had a treat!
