    I bought this mini iron for only 5 bucks from one of my quilting buddies, and the ironing board I board I just found last week at a yard sale for only a buck! The cover looked really new!!

    Those mini irons are great for small pieces, check your local thrift stores.

    That is the best miniature iron you will find. I had one that I bought at an auction for $4. It is made by Conair and I just loved it. It is also a steam iron. I had mine for about 7 years. My DH made me a miniature ironing board and I covered it with fabric, padding, insulbrite and used it beside my sewing table all the time. The ironing board had a rack where you could put the iron. When the iron finally burned out, I was lost. I went on line in EBay and found two of them. I think I paid about $10 each for them. You will love this iron.
