Antique Sewing Machines, Saturday fun....

Historical pictures from the fruit packing plant archives.

 Fun Saturday!! We went to Loomis, Ca to visit the High Hand nursery and restaurant. They are located in and around an old historical fruit packing plant. There are also other fun shops in the warehouse selling antiques, pottery, art, vintage sewing supplies, wine, and more.
We had brunch and enjoyed the color, and relaxed atmosphere.
Very inspiring. I think I will start collecting old sewing machines.
Visit me and we'll do lunch there!

High Hand nursery, very picturesque.

The Rug Co., one of the many shops inside.

Interesting iron fencing.

The Tin Thimble, selling vintage fabric and sewing supplies.

  1. Looks like you had a good day!

  2. It was good. It gets the creative juices stirred up to see something different.

  3. I would definitely collect old sewing machines if I had the room to put them! This looks like a wonderful place to spend the day.

  4. That's the thing, where to put them.

  5. this looks like an amazing place Janie. I ''sort of'' collect old sewing machines but dare not commit myself to that verbally as I don't have anywhere to keep the ones I have now so try very hard not to add to them...hence not saying I'm a collector.
