Woman Thinks She Bought An Old Sewing Machine.. Then She Discovers Something Hidden Inside It

In life comes surprises like no other and however, small they may be, they always bring happiness and a feeling of being special ourselves in some kind. Same happened with a woman from Columbia, South Carolina.

She bought an antique sewing machine from a local thrift store. In the drawers, she found old patterns and patches and a pair of old-world scissors left by the former owner of the machine.

Later she noticed a drawer won't close properly and thus she reached inside only to find something truly amazing which on investigation turned out to be a heartwarming love story of a soldier and his wife.
