yeah i'm looking too! all i've found are EXPENSIVE vintage/thrift stores. i didn't get a chance to look last time i passed, but old town tustin has a lot of thrift stores...

there aren't very many garage sales around my area... but those are awesome places to find things--esp. since you can bargain. my friend got this old school typewriter that still worked for 3 bucks! i was sooooo jealous.

sewing machine stores offer lessons i think

hope that helped a bit?

yay! OC'ers! alrighty- in Old Town Fullerton, we have a bunch of vintage clothing stores. It's a good place to spend an afternoon walking around, lots of fun. And there is a goodwill nearby. I also hear there are good thrift stores in Santa Ana- well organized and very thrifty. My local Michaels has sewing machine lessons.

let me see your gila
