I did refrain from quite a few things. One thing I refrained from that I shouldn't have.... There was a vintage featherweight sewing machine in the case in top notch condition for only $150. Me in my cheap, tightwad mode offered the lady $100 for it and she said she'd think about it and for me to check back before I left. I forgot to go back... I should have just paid her the $150! Oh well (sigh)!
But what I did buy was this.
I was told it was an antique iron of some sorts. I only paid $12 for it. But I can't find any info on it. Does anyone know what it is called or how it was used?
Updated 4/13/15 10:05 p.m. - After posting an SOS on a Facebook page I'm a member of, I have an answer. It is called a Goffering Iron, used to press collars and ruffles from the mid to late 1800's. You can read about it here.
I also bought these 2 vintage kitchen utensils. You know I had to get them to go in the new turquoise/red kitchen.
That's it! That's all I bought. I performed great self control! But I text my sister and told her to mark her calendar and plan a trip. I imagine I won't have such great self control with her along.
