A whole bunch of awesome local crafters are clearing out their stashes to sell at thrifty prices, at the Workroom this Sunday. You may know that my craft shelf is a bit out of control, and so you might imagine that my fellow crafters also have a penchant for buying too many craft supplies on a whim or when they see a dreamy fabric or yarn and imagine a zillion possibilities for projects, or rounding up all sorts of collectables from yard sales from here to Montreal. Now is the time to take advantage of their (my) regrets. There will be a lot of good stuff: all sorts of craft supplies and vintage wares including (but not limited to) paper ephemera, vintage dresses, handprinted fabric remnant packs, buttons, findings, jewellery supplies, vintage fabrics, yarns & more!

Well not always, but I do love sweet finds on garbage day like this perfectly pink vintage metal ironing board. It was in a pile in the sun, this past Monday, just waiting for me to come rescue it.
Of course, I’ll have to clean the cobwebs out and give it a little makeover, but this is a nice, sturdy replacement for my old chipboard wobbly unit.
This Windsor Ironing Board touts as its “Best Buy” features:
- easy-rolling wheels, factory installed
- finger-touch adjustment
- offset legs for sitdown ironing
- ventilated top for cooler ironing
- sturdy, strong construction
It also has a built-in extension cord, but due to its age, I don’t think I’ll be using it.
I have a bunch of spring scarves I’m making that all require ironing, so I can’t wait to get this recovered!
