Flea Market Finds

I found this little mirror at the second hand shop and instantly fell in love. She needs a bit of a tidy up - How cute is that shelf? Ive never seen one like that before.
This old girl is my pride and joy, rescued from the tip shop I had her stripped and cleaned and she performs like no other. She is a wonderful machine to sew with and my preferred machine for dressmaking and general sewing. They certainly dont make them like this anymore!
Found any good bargains this week? For more Flea Market Finds visit Sophie Enjoy your Sunday! x

Love that mirror! Fabulous find! I know what you mean about the old machines. Mine was my Aunts and dates from the '70's. Not an elna, a pfaff, but she just keeps on going and going.

Good morning Melissa! Didn't you do well? That mirror is really special! I've never seen one with a shelf like that! As you can see in my sitting room, on my latset post those frameless mirrors are my favourites! Thank you for your lovely comment, Melissa. It made my day! Lots of love, Amanda xxx

Oh that mirror is a truly great find. I've never seen one with a shelf either.
I've been looking for an old sewing machine for ages but the only ones I find are dark brown. Yours is lovely.

That mirror is a great find but I can't believe the Elna machine! I have one similar but with a pink top and I paid $300 for it but even though it was 30 years old - it is the best I have ever had too. It's amazing what people throw out.
