Keep Your Fingers Crossed PLEASE



This morning my mom, husband and I are heading back to the estate sale from yesterday because we found out there are two, I SAID TWO, mangles there that are being held for my mom!



This one is in the breakfast nook and there is another one in the basement.  It's not known if they are in working order but we are hopeful they are!

 
I neglected to tell you that after I posted on an estate sale where my mom spied a mangle she desperately wanted to buy (as a back up), her's broke!


  
I've been on a mission ever since to find her a replacement.

We're hoping for a happy ending today...
The guilt I've been suffering because I talked her out of it has been killing me)

Wish us luck!!

Lucky you! I've been looking for a mangle for years (new ones are $2K).
I thought I was the only one left who still irons her sheets!

Oh I hope she gets it. What a great piece to have to iron all those wonderful linens and some people are so good they can even do shirts. Fingers crossed. Hugs, Marty

Hey Theresa,
My MOM has a MANGLE in her garage and it is very old and all working in great cond.

I so remember my Mom and Grandma and great grandmas running the fresh clothes line bed sheets through it for a beautiful press job.

I hope she finds a great one!

Have a beautiful week girl.
