From a 'junk' store

We were going through Rockville, Indiana when we noticed that this store was open that is open only now and then.  We drove past, Roger asked if I wanted to stop...I said it didn't matter...so he went around the block and we went in and talked to the owners and proceeded to look around.  The guy noticed that I liked sewing machines and when I was standing by one, he said he wanted to show me something.
He opened the drawer in the old treadle sewing machine cabinet and pulled out the wooden box....and opened it up like this.  It had all these pressure feet.  I knew what some of them were for, but others I had never seen anything that even resembled them.  I did not take pictures then but had to go back...

I just had to show everyone...have you ever seen anything as neat as this???

That is a neat box. I'd stand there wondering if to buy it or not, then wonder what would I do with it if I did, walk away from it, then a hundred miles down the road be wishing I had bought it.

that box is awesome. It's not something that we see daily here.

Ingenious! Also it is remarkable that you recognized many of the objects in the box!

The storeowner could probably get more for the box than the sewing machine. Very unique.
