A Sewing Machine Planter and Lifestyle Behind It

Robyn, Jarrid and their company, The Poor Porker, have a fascinating story and philosophy. The pair arrived in Lakeland, Florida broke. But they believed that it’s possible to make “something from nothing,” or at least beautiful things with limited resources.

So they set up a food stand and began selling beignets regularly. The Poor Porker, as they called their stand, attracted a following and developed what one customer calls “a vibe.” Now, in addition to selling fresh pastries on the street, they find great new uses for what other people have thown out as junk, such as this sewing machine.
