I get so disgusted that this little town I live in has nothing but second hand stores.  With finds like that, I guess I should give them a second chance.

You're up late!  So Crosby's not doing it for you when it comes to shopping?  Have you checked out all the antique shops?  That's about all there is.  I can only last a short time in those shops.

I wish I could find a great deal like that!  My travel Rowenta broke the other day... the handle won't stay up so I suppose I'll have to go buy another one.

I bought a Panasonic iron at Sam's Club.  Has a carrying case and is cordless.  It sits on a base but the iron itself is light.  Love it.

Young folks don't iron these days (well neither do I except for pressing seams), but as my daughters got married they seemed to receive a couple of irons each as wedding presents.  I've inherited all of them and actually have 3 or 4 in my sewing room closet.  When one quits, I just break out a new box.  I haven't been too picky so far because they have been free to me (well not really free as it costs me another new quilt every now or then which I would have made them anyway).

I used to have a Black & Decker that had a faceplate shaped like that and love it.  Right now I have a Rowenta but have used Panasonic irons before and was well pleased with them.   Looks like a really nice iron.  I especially like the carry case if you do lots of classes and sew ins.
