Yay! It’s Friday! I’m particularly anxious for this weekend because come next Monday I’m gonna be installing my wood floors upstairs!
I’ve been waiting for this day for years now. I can’t wait to say goodbye to the last of the ugly old stained carpet!
Well, back to Friday and what we always do on Friday!
Until very recently I hadn’t set foot inside a thrift store or antique store since at least February! (I’m looking at you, Coronavirus). When I decided to stop by a thrift store I hadn’t ever been to before (no idea why since it’s really close to my house) I couldn’t believe my good fortune when I saw this!
At first I thought it was a type of sadiron but upon closer examination I saw the prongs that indicated some sort of electric connection.
The back reads:
American Beauty No 6 1/2 B
Made by American Electrical Heater Co
Patented May 19,1908; May 19, 1914; Feb 12, 1916
Volts 105-120. Watts 525
It came complete with its little rusty, crusty base plate.
It’s the perfect addition to the other vintage treasures I have on my open shelves in my laundry nook.
Now let’s check out what Emily Is sharing this week. Just click on the photo below…
Until next time….
