Things to do with an old Sewing Machine

Last week while visiting Miami we happened upon the most fabulous shop. All Saints Co. What's funny is that just the day before, my daughter and I found a beautiful old sewing machine at the swap meet. We agreed it was a great deal at $25 but "What do you do with it?" was the burning question. So then we came across this boutique in the Lincoln Road Shopping District that had hundreds of old sewing machines stacking the walls as a visual element. The affect was nothing short of stunning!

This shop was kind of a cross between early twentieth century sweatshop and a post industrial factory look with a cool steampunk twist. I think Anthropology has met its match!

Old theatre seating...very cool. Check out the patina on these leather seats.

The prices were absolutely insane, though. I think this little top my daughter is checking out is about $350!

Edgy looks...breathtaking displays.

If you are ever in the area, be sure to check this shop out!
