The quilt show that I attended as a vendor this past weekend was over Saturday afternoon. Sunday, Dear Hubby and I decided to tool around the countryside. Besides finding all the barn quilts that I showed you in the last post, we found several flea markets that were open.
My best score of the day was this lovely vintage 1940's Knapp-Monarch travel iron in perfect condition.
Look ma, no holes . . . . .
The handle folds flat and the cord unplugs from the iron for easy traveling. It's also heavier than it looks. I plugged it in and it works just fine. There is no adjustable heat element. You just plug it in until it is the "hotness" you want and iron away. It took no time at all for the temperature to get to the "linen" setting but it seems to be taking forever to cool back down. And there is no stand so I will have to lay it on it's side when not in use.
But she is as cute as can be. I don't know if I will actually use her but if I ever need an iron without steam holes, she will be the first one I call!
