Sign of the times

I always thought that the Singer sewing machine store in the mall across the way was cute, in a quaint way. You could have your machine serviced, buy parts and even pick up some ribbon or fabric from the world's worst selection. However in this day and age people who sew their own clothing (or sew their own anything for that matter) are few and far between, certainly there weren't enough of them in our neighbourhood to support an entire store dedicated to sewing machines.

I'm not sure when it closed - probably October 1st though honestly I didn't notice... maybe only October 15th. No fanfare, just there one day, gone the next. Sad really.
