singer sewing machine...

the store 'All Saints' have the most amazing displays of old Singer sewing machines that took my breath away. Hundreds of glorious machines and they cleverly display beautiful garments on old industrial weaving looms, just add a glass top and it becomes a shelf, looks really good.
know I should have been looking at the clothes but I was so enjoying seeing all the lovely machines and looms...I forgot...oops!

The photos here are from the store in Chicago, USA
