I went to two estate sales this morning. One was a waste of time, but the other was interesting. It was near Cicero and Belmont, which isn't too far away. I went because it was the first sale of two for two sisters who owned a two-flat together Each had her own apartment, they never married and collected sooo many knick-knacks and dolls. OMG. But they both also loved to sew, so there will be a second sale in a few weeks with all of the sewing stuff and more.
Anyways, I don't want freaky dolls or dust collecting figurines. However, in the last room I found three old irons, two of which look new and were still in their boxes. Since everything was 50% off, I bought all three for $17.
Then I took them home to see if they worked. The first one was obviously well-used and got a newer cord at some point. It works and is nicely heavy with a smooth plate. Not that horrible non-stick plate on my modern iron that is melting off every time someone accidentally uses setting 6. It has temp settings on a thumb wheel
Anyways, it was fun to find some sewing related stuff after a long gap of wasted drives to crappy sales. Yay!
