All **Singer(s) machines**

Happy Easter lovelies, hope you are having a beautiful day
While walking around Portobello Market this morning I stomped upon the new All Saints shop. But what caught my eye (and everybody's else in the street) were the hundreds of Singers machines in the windows. Vintage Singer machines, incredible. A whole corner decorated with the iconic sewing machines. 


Hope you are enjoying the long weekend. My mum loves Portobello so we went down there for a walk, in the evening we are heading to the Greek Orthodox Church in London for the Resurrection and tomorrow lunch with friends. Hope you are having a great time! Enjoy the sewing machines, it was truly incredible.

  15. Incredible, who would have thought so many still existed... (they must have bought a whole old workshop). My mum still has one in her cellar, perhaps I should 'liberate' it. Wishing you Happy Easter Days!
